Up for auction is an international pop catalog of over 40 tracks from recognizable artists Big Time Rush, P!nk, Backstreet Boys, Flo-Rida and more. This catalog has serious global reach, with international royalties from dozens of countries including the United Kingdom, Japan, and South Africa.

This includes boy-band sensations Big Time Rush whose success sparked a self-titled scripted TV series, which currently ranks as one of Nickelodeon’s longest-running live action TV series. This listing features multiple hits from the band’s platinum album Elevate including “Love Me Love Me” and “You Are Not Alone.” The top earner for this catalog is “Worldwide,” which historically contributes to 33% of this collection’s earnings.

This listing also includes the all-girl South African pop-group Jamali, and multiple Korean pop artists, such as K-Pop sensations MyName and Japanese super-star Namie Amuro. Jamali’s 2011 track “A Little Obsessed” alone contributes to 11% of this catalog’s historical earnings.

Other notable tracks include “Whatever Happened To The Heroes” by Joss Stone, which was placed in the feature film Fantastic Four, and “It’s Christmas Time Again” from Jessica Simpson’s 2010 RIAA certified Gold Rejoyce: The Christmas Album, which accounts for 10% of this catalog’s earnings in the last 12 months.

Key Drivers

Streaming. Earners in this catalog include Big Time Rush’s most popular track “Worldwide” and more. Any time one of these tracks is streamed on Spotify, Pandora, or Apple Music, you earn! Big Time Rush has nearly 1 million monthly listeners on the streaming platform Spotify. The track “Worldwide” alone has over 17 million streams and counting. It is also featured on Spotify’s curated playlist, This Is Big Time Rush, with nearly 20,000 monthly followers. This is good news for you, as it exposes Big Time Rush to new listeners & potential fans.

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — including nearly 70% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by BMI, regardless of when they were earned.
