Bid on 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 12 months, this asset has generated $4,547 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 71% 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. 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 15% of the catalog's earnings. Finally, this collection of music also features the mixtape track “Czech Republic” from Jeremih.

Key Drivers

Trey Songz released a new album last spring, Tremaine the Album and has tour dates scheduled through August 2017. New releases can help reinvigorate an artist's back catalog, as the release of new music draws interest from new fans and excited existing fans. The same goes for rising artist Justine Skye, who recently released a new single with her Roc Nation label. Although these new works are not part of this catalog, the impact of new music on an artist's back catalog is still relevant.
