  • Walter A. sold his AIWFCIY stake. What do you think Mariah would feel?

    • My fears of Mariah selling portions of her catalog continue to grow. LA Reid, among others similarly sold his catalog to that company a while back.

        • It really makes me happy because Mariah is now allowing a lot of projects to use her music like the movies Always Be My Maybe and Free Guy.

          Movies really boost a song’s popularity

          • Darkchild sold nearly 1000 songs to that same company. I hope Mariah never does anything like that.

              I don’t think Mariah would do this, not unless she’s bankrupt. If she wants fast money, she can just license her songs on a bargain

              If she’s lazy to handle them, she can just license a company to do the works for her.

                  Can someone please explain why it stated 50%? So royalty is just being shared by songwriters or producers? There's no percentage shared to the singer?

                          It's another big milestone to add to her achievements.

                          Mariah has been killing it the past 2 years

                              Each song is a mini brand


                              The idea of investing in an artist's future earnings isn't new. In 1997, David Bowie sold asset-backed securities, dubbed "Bowie bonds", which awarded investors a share in the royalties of songs like Life On Mars and Heroes.

                              The down side was that it was essentially a loan. If Bowie didn't make as much money as predicted, he'd have had to surrender the rights to his songs.

                              Mercuriadis says his deals are "more sophisticated", with artists paid 15 years of royalties up front. Taking tax relief into account, many walk away with "about 25 years worth of money in one fell swoop", he says. In return, Hipgnosis owns the songs in perpetuity

She was already on a pedestal in the public eye as an icon and cultural influencer since the 80's. She never had a Glitter-level disgrace.

                                    Also, TEOM was massive. Undeniably so. And WBT is still THAT song. What. A. JAM.
                                    It depends on what market you are looking at.

                                    USA - TEOM was far bigger than COADF
                                    Outside USA - COADF was far bigger than TEOM

                                    They both sold around 10 million, Mariah sold 6 in the US, 4 WW, Madonna sold 1 million in the US but 9 million WW.

                                    Also Madonna's career, especially in the US was in an iffy place after American Life and actually one could say that she didn't recover as well in the US as Mariah did. American Life was kind of on a par with Charmbracelet in terms of sales at the time. I mean, its amazing to think that TEOM sold 6 times as much as COADF in the US but that the albums sold the same overall.

                                    However Hung Up is definitely one of the biggest songs of Madonna's career and was a bonafide WW smash so it was a comeback of sorts. Madonna hadn't had a really huge WW single like that since Music in 2000 and again Hung UP was bigger WW than WBT, but obviously WBT was far bigger than Hung Up in the US.

                                    Both eras were hugely successful, and it is interesting to see how they both hit so hard, but in different markets.
                                    Seeing both Madonna and Mariah with 10 million selling albums in 2005 was pretty incredible tbh.

                                      Songwriter got publishing and mechanical royalties. Singer got their own share in a royalty as well. However, singer share in royalties are recoupable by label if she has any unpaid advances. Songwriting publishing n mechanical rolyalties however unrecoupable by label. Walter got her fair share in mechanical n publishing royalties. While mariah earns from both mechanical/publishing as well from her artist/singer cut which % depends of her deal with columbia at tht time. Producer share usually paid from Singer/artist share. So mariah/walter may get additional 3% from producer share which both of em taking 50% each.

                                      • Mariah's comeback in 2005 was truly remarkable. She was really coming back from two very bad eras and a damaged image. Despite the not so pleasant sales of American Life and it's singles, Madonna was still riding high on the waves of her very successful sold out ReInvention tour in 2004. Hung Up was far more successful worldwide, but I still wouldn't call it a comeback. She was never gone that far away. Mariah really did it. The stunning success of WBT and the whole Mimi era is what I really call an Amazing comeback!

                                                    I guess he just want to milk the song to a certain extent while he is still alive.

                                                    As for Mariah, it is her brand now so it will unwise to sell her share.
