Nell, or N3LL, is a young inspired artist from the heart of Miami. Being born and raised in South Florida he has learned how to survive in the streets of Miami while creating music from his soul. “Music is more than just my life it’s my whole purpose. This music made me who I am today and I just want the world to enjoy it,” says Nell.
Looking at the overall income from 2019 into 2020 we can see that this catalog has been increasing steadily over that last 18 months mainly from Nell’s debut mixtape album 90’s Mentality.
We can also see that the 90’s Mentality album got a very good bounce from the release of Wayne’s World. Although that revenue pop has already dropped off it still shows continued growth in the 90’s Mentality album.
This is one of the few catalogs that is still increasing even though the album was released originally in 2012 and then again with TuneCore in 2017.
One other item to notice in yellow is that Nell had three singles and two albums that he missed renewing in TuneCore, so they were removed from stores. Two of them produced enough revenue to make a difference, Break Yoself 2 (Single) and Boyz in the Hood (Album).
Break Yoself 2 was making about $130 a month or about $1,500 annually and Boyz in the Hood about $30 a month or $360 a year. Both of these can be re-released and those numbers should come back up. That also contributed to the drop in the last month, which means the bounce from the new album did not cause as much of a decline.
Looking at the revenue by album we can see the same information from above. That 90’s Mentality drives the overall revenue and the titles in yellow that expired and can be re-listed.
Revenue by song by quarter shows that 59% of the income comes from the top two songs with the third song at 5% is Break Yoself 2 which took a drop last quarter because it was removed. Overall this is a good spread of music where most of the top songs are from the 90’s album.
With the top two songs, we want to look at the income by type to see how that breaks down. The main income comes from Spotify and we can see it consistently increasing starting in 2019. Apple music stays about the same, but we see a big uptick in YouTube Music Key. That looks like is totally correlated to the release of the new album Wayne’s World. Again, all trending in the right direction.
This is a great investment catalog mainly driven by one album that has become a classic mixtape for Nell and has been increasing in revenue over the last 18 months. With the release of his new album, we see that fans have been re-engaging not only on the new album but also on the mixtape.
These are all good signs that point to continued growth, especially as Nell releases new albums in the future. New fans are finding him and listening to the classic mixtape.
