As the winning bidder, you will collect from publishing royalties which include mechanical, public performance, and sync income for the R&B single “Cookie” performed by R. Kelly.

Mechanical royalties are the leading contributing source bringing in 63% of revenue in the last year. The track’s mechanical earnings saw the second best year-over-year stability of the various income groups. Public performance earnings account for nearly a quarter of the song’s royalties in the last 12 months.

Released in 2013, “Cookie” had success hitting No. 49 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop chart. To date, the song has over 36 million spins on Spotify. “Cookie” was also featured in the 2015 feature film Magic Mike XXL and released on the accompanying soundtrack. Every time the film airs on TV or is streamed on demand, a public performance royalty is generated for “Cookie.”

Key Drivers

Income Mix. The winner of this auction can receive income in various ways:

  • Mechanical: Royalties paid to songwriters and artists when music is sold (think CD or vinyl) but also when music is streamed (streaming mechanicals) “on-demand” (like Spotify).

  • Performance: Royalties paid to songwriters when music is performed publicly. Music played over the radio, in a restaurant or bar, or over a service like Spotify or Pandora is considered a public performance.

  • YouTube Digital Video: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers when music is played on YouTube and any revenue generated on the YouTube platform by the music.

  • Synchronization: Royalties paid to songwriters and publishers for the licensing of a song in music for a movie, TV show, or commercial.
