Thanks to this catalog’s global appeal, 89% of earnings came from overseas. Some 123 countries contribute to these results, which has increased significantly in recently reported revenue. The United Kingdom and Germany are the top-contributors with over a third of royalties in the last 12 months.
Released in 2017, “Tip Toe,” from Jason Derulo and hip-hop artist French Montana is the highest-earning track in this catalog — accounting for 54% of last year’s income. The song was a global hit and is one of Derulo’s biggest commercial singles to date. The track charted in 22 separate countries and is Gold-certified or better in five, including Platinum in the United Kingdom.
Another noteworthy single is “Hey Ma” featuring Pitbull, Colombian singer J Balvin, and Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello. Earnings for the 2017 release remain stable to date. The song is off The Fate of the Furious soundtrack and has an English and Spanish version. "Hey Ma" was nominated for Best Urban Song at the 2017 Latin Grammys and debuted at No. 5 on the Hot Latin Songs, marking Pitbull's highest entry ever on the chart.
Rounding out the top titles are Rita Ora’s 2015 “Body On Me” (the catalog’s second-highest earning song to date), “Not Too Young” from Swedish gospel vocalist Sabina Dbumba, and “Say My Name” from Swedish pop singer Tove Styrke. The catalog also includes 2017's "Whiskey," a collaboration between Maroon 5 and ASAP Rocky.
Star Power. Not surprisingly, the global star power within this catalog is an attractive feature. From Pitbull to J. Balvin to Jason Derulo to Camila Cabello — these are multi-Platinum-selling artists with a proven track record of hits, loyal fan bases, and mainstream appeal.
Pitbull has sold over 100 million records worldwide and touts No. 1 singles in 15 different countries. J Balvin has won four Latin Grammy Awards, collaborated with Beyoncé, Pharrell Williams, The Black Eyed Peas, and Cardi B, and still, maintains focus on his Latin fanbase. Camila Cabello has amassed billions of streams on streaming platforms and had the best-selling digital single of 2018 according to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).
As these artists continue to gain in popularity and release new songs/albums and tour, this can help boost their back catalog.
Streaming Growth Worldwide. According to IFPI’S Global Music Report 2019, streaming revenues were up 34% in 2018, accounting for nearly half (47%) of total recorded music revenues. By the end of 2018, there were 255 million users of paid subscription accounts globally.
This is good news for you as the investor, as 89% of this catalog’s income comes from what is noted as “international” which denotes royalties earned outside the United States including income from streaming platforms.
International Earnings. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 89% of last year’s income. International royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments and arrive with limited detail. These international earnings include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film. As the winner of this auction, you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by BMI, regardless of when they were earned.
