ABOUT THE CATALOG: 

This catalog prominently features the double-Platinum hit single “My Way” from popular rapper Fetty Wap. 

Released in 2015, "My Way" was the third single on Fetty Wap’s self-titled debut album. The track debuted at No. 98 on the Billboard Hot 100. Less than three weeks later, "My Way" jumped 80 positions from No. 87 to No. 7, boasting impressive sales and 6.6 million domestic streams. The track also charted on three other Billboard charts, including hitting No. 3 Hot Rap Songs. 

Since then, “My Way” has racked up nearly 219 million spins on YouTube and nearly 277+ million plays on Spotify.

Key Drivers

Dollar Age. This catalog has a Dollar Age of 5.99 years. This means the majority of royalties earned in the last 12 months came from songs that have collected royalties for nearly six years. A high Dollar Age like this suggests stability and longevity. A catalog containing mature works is something worth noting as an investor, as it can help sustain a catalog's earnings moving forward.

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.

​​​​Streaming Growth Worldwide. According to IFPI’S Global Music Report 2021, subscription streaming revenues for recorded music increased 18.5% over the previous year. That’s the sixth consecutive year of growth, totaling 443 million paid subscription accounts worldwide. Total streaming (including both paid subscription and advertising-supported) grew 19.9% and reached $13.4 billion, or 62.1% of total global recorded music revenues.
