Up for bid is a collection of hip-hop singles driven by streaming with global reach. The offering features songs from top Swedish hip-hop artists Adel, Dree Low, Macky, Imenella, and more. 


This asset features public performance and mechanical royalties distributed by Swedish PRO  STIM. The “Financials” tab lists the organization’s unique payment schedule and slightly different terminology for royalty sources. 

Streaming performance royalties are the leading source of earnings accounting for 46% of last year’s total. You’ll notice a significant increase in year-over-year streaming earnings as a result of the catalog’s new releases in 2019. Mechanical royalties come in second with 19% of earnings. 

The catalog is also bolstered by a diverse mix of earnings — with no track accounting for more than 17% of last year’s royalties. This provides built-in diversification.


This offering’s top-producing song is “Narcos” from Swedish hip-hop artist Adel. Released in April 2019 on Fem Stjärnor, the track has over four million Spotify spins while the original video has 1.4 million views. Also included off Fem Stjärnor is “Tony & Elvira” featuring Dree Low. Combined, the two Adel tracks account for 29% of last year’s earnings. 

The catalog also includes “Breathless” — which is a song featured in the American musical drama series Star on Fox— as well as “Fastnade” from Swedish rapper Macky.

Key Drivers

Diversity in Song Income. The single highest-earning song only accounts for 17% of last year’s earnings. This means the catalog’s earnings are not tied to the success of a single track and provides built-in diversification.

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.


STIM pays on a quarterly basis, with four regular payments each calendar year. In addition to these quarterly payments, STIM also distributes "out of cycle" payments for digital music services. These dates are estimated (not fixed) and can vary throughout the year. The winner of this auction will receive all future distributions for the included works in this offering paid by STIM. Read more about on STIM's payment schedule here
