Up for auction is a catalog of three diverse songs performed by three different artists: R&B crooner Tank, Mexican pop princess Sofia Reyes and none other than Ariana Grande herself! Over the last 12 months, this asset has generated $3,648 in royalties.

The highest earner in the catalog is the song “Muévelo” performed by Latin pop star Sofia Reyes featuring Wisin. Released in 2014, the song accounts for 82% of the historic earnings, and in the last four quarters grew at a rate of 87%. “Muévelo” has a very strong streaming presence with over 45 million Spotify streams, ranking second among Reyes' most popular Spotify songs. The song reached No. 18 on both Billboard's US Latin Pop Songs and Mexico (Billboard Mexican Airplay) and is certified-Platinum in Spain (PROMUSICAE).

Ariana Grande's, “Lovin It” is the second highest earner and most visible track in the catalog. The song is off her debut solo album Yours Truly from 2013. The album debuted No. 1 on US Billboard 200 charts and was recently certified-Platinum in 2016. “Lovin It” has over has 15 million Spotify plays, and Ariana Grande ranks 35th in world for Spotify monthly listeners.

The final track to make up this catalog is “F In Wit Me,” performed by R&B veteran Tank. The song is off Tank's seventh studio album, Sex Love & Pain II, which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard R&B chart and No. 15 on Billboard 200. “F In Wit Me” gained viral popularity with a recent live performance in May 2017. As a result, the track cracked the iTunes R&B/Soul chart despite the fact it was never released as a single. The song also has over seven million YouTube views, with the daily views on the rise.

Key Drivers

1.) One driver for this auction is the “Ariana Grande” factor. While Grande's “Lovin It” accounts for just 14% of the catalog's historic earnings, her recent emotional and triumphant performance at the "One Love Manchester" concert could certainly be of interest to an investor. As a rising artist with a growing fan base, her back catalog could experience reengaged fans as well as new listeners.

2.) Sofia Reyes' “Muévelo” anchors this catalog with 82% of its revenue. The rise of Latin music in the United States is very apparent. For an artist like Reyes, “Muévelo” has experienced radio airplay both domestically and abroad. The large four growth rate is a result of international earnings being distributed in Q1 2016, most likely from international radio play in Spain and Argentina. Songs with airplay often build a foundation for streaming and other types of revenue once the initial spike has passed.
