Invest in royalties produced by a collection of eclectic pop music. This offering is highlighted by a new release from New Kids On The Block and a track from a rising funk/pop artist.

The highlight of this catalog is the title “One More Night” from the massively popular early 90s group New Kids On The Block. “One More Night” brought in 33% of last year’s income. The song is off the EP Thankful, which peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard 200. The group premiered “One More Night” live on The Late Late Show with James Corden on March 6, 2017.

Also featured is the track “Diggy” from Spencer Ludwig. Released in 2016, “Diggy” was Spencer Ludwig’s first solo single — racking up over 2.7 million Spotify streams to date. The song also enjoyed some prominent TV/Film placements: featured in Target’s “fall style” campaign and in the feature film Happy Death Day, among many others. The song accounts for 26% of the catalog’s income in the last year.

Another title included in this offering is “I Don't Apologize (1,000 Pictures)” from the hard rock group Otherwise. Released in 2012, the track peaked at No. 16 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart. Finally, the song “Energy In Magic” from electronic group Tom & Hills, with nearly three million Spotify spins, is also included.

Key Drivers

Tours and New Music. New Kids On The Block are actively staying in front of their fans with an annual NKOTB Carnival cruise. Spencer Ludwig just dropped a new single in June 2018. Although this title isn’t included in this collection, you can benefit from new exposure to his back catalog that new music provides. Tours/events and new music releases give artists the chance to solidify their current fan base, expand their reach to new listeners, and re-engage their back catalog.

Income Sources. Radio earnings account for 36% of this catalog’s income to date. Although radio royalties are still generated, they could eventually level off. Songs that experience significant radio play can often build a foundation for other types of income.

Case in point: streaming. You'll notice there is a shift in income in the last 12 months when it comes to streaming. Historically, streaming brought in 5% of royalties. In the last 12 months, however, streaming accounted for 7% of royalties. So we're seeing as the radio royalties begin to slow down, other income sources (streaming) begin to increase.

It’s also worth noting this catalog has earned a fair amount of royalties from TV/Film sources. This is due to the songs’ being performed on air during talk shows and other programming.
