Investors already had their shot at the songwriter’s share of public performance royalties for this catalog (you can view that auction here), and now’s your chance to bid on the Life of Rights for the publisher’s share. 

The winning bidder will collect mechanical, public performance, and sync royalties for this collection of pop tracks from Pitbull, J Balvin, Camila Cabello, Jason Derulo, Maroon 5, Rita Ora, Chris Brown


  • Life of Rights investment term
  • Multiple income streams, including valuable streaming mechanical earnings
  • Multi-Platinum artists with global, mainstream appeal


Mechanical royalties lead the way with 56% of earnings in the last year, 13% more than the year prior. Public performance royalties generated 37% of earnings, which are up 22% year-over-year. 


The top-earning song is 2017’s “Tip Toe,” from Jason Derulo and hip-hop artist French Montana with 52% of last year’s income. The song is one of Derulo’s biggest commercial singles to date — charting in 22 separate countries and is Gold-certified or better in five, including Platinum in the United Kingdom. To date, it has nearly 285 million streams on Spotify. 

“Hey Ma” featuring Pitbull, Colombian singer J Balvin, and Cuban-American singer Camila Cabello is another noteworthy track. The single is off The Fate of the Furious soundtrack and was nominated for Best Urban Song at the 2017 Latin Grammys.

Rounding out the top songs are Swedish pop vocalist Tove Styrke’s 2017 “Say My Name,” "Whiskey," a collaboration between Maroon 5 and ASAP Rocky, and Rita Ora’s 2015 “Body On Me.”

Key Drivers

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

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

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.
