“See You Again” by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth has been a massive hit since it came out two years ago as part of the “Furious 7” soundtrack. It’s the most viewed video of all-time on YouTube. And now, YOU can own a piece of it!
One of the background singers on the track is auctioning off his royalty share through a site called ‘Royalty Exchange,’ which connects musicians with investors who are interested in acquiring royalty income.
The auction is open until Monday and last we checked the highest bid was $34,000. So, how long would it take for you to make back that initial investment?
It isn’t a huge share, and it’s unclear what percentage of the cut it is but according to the listing, it paid out $11,372 in 2016, which isn’t bad.
You’ll own the share forever, because the copyright is good until the “author’s” death, PLUS 70 years.
You get 100% of the seller’s interest in domestic royalties, and 30% of what the share makes internationally.
Not to mention the idea of owning a royalty share is kind of cool to think about! 🙂
