Collect songwriter royalties from a catalog that includes songs performed by well-known superstars as well as rising artists. The foundation of this collection is the track “Foreign” performed by Trey Songz, but it also includes songs from up-and-coming vocalist Justine Skye, a title from Grammy-nominated Jeremih and a remix with Justin Bieber. Over the last four quarters, this asset has generated $2,781 in royalties.

Released in 2014, “Foreign” is the third single from Trey Songz sixth studio album Trigga. The song peaked at No. 25 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and No. 84 on the Hot 100 chart. “Foreign” accounts for 70% of the catalog's historic earnings. The track also has an official remix that features Canadian pop superstar Justin Bieber. That version brings in 12% of the catalog's income in the last year. As the winner of this auction, you'll collect royalties for the original version, as well as the remix.

The catalog also features “I'm Yours” and “Bandit” from Justine Skye, both of which come from her album Emotionally Unavailable. Skye is an emerging young vocalist who recently signed with Jay Z's label Roc Nation. “Bandit” was also used in an episode of the sixth season of VH1's “Love and Hip Hop.” This means every time that episode airs with "Bandit," you'll receive a royalty. Combined the two titles "I'm Yours" and "Bandit," account for 21% of the catalog's income to date.

Finally, this collection of music also features the mixtape track “Czech Republic” from Jeremih.

Key Drivers

According to BuzzAngle’s 2017 Music Report: Urban music (Hip-Hop/Rap and R&B) was the most streamed genre in 2017, accounting for 32% of all streams. For this R&B catalog, streaming sources account for the majority of the catalog's income in the last year -- with 48% of last year's royalties.

You'll also notice there is a shift in income in the last 12 months when it comes to streaming. Historically, streaming brought in 37% of royalties. But again, in the last 12 months, streaming accounted for 48% of royalties. So as we're seeing as the radio royalties begin to slow down, other income sources (streaming) begin to increase.
