WHAT IS PRODUCTION MUSIC?

Production music is the name given to recorded music that can be licensed to customers for use in film, television, radio and other media.

The business model of production music is based on two income streams:

  • License or synchronization fees: These are the fees paid upfront to the library for permission to synchronize its music to a piece of film, video or audio. These fees can range from a few dollars for an internet usage, to thousands for a network commercial usage.
  • Performance income (or performance royalties): Performance income is generated when music is publicly performed – for example, on television or radio. The producer of the show or film that has licensed the music does not pay these fees. Instead, large fees are paid annually by broadcasters (such as television networks and radio stations) to performing rights organizations such as ASCAP, BMI and SESAC in the US and the PRS in the UK, who then distribute income among their members. To ensure it is distributed fairly and accurately, most broadcasters are required to keep note of what music they have broadcast and for how long. This information is then used by the performance societies to allocate income to their members. Typically, a library will receive 50 percent of the performance income (this is known as the publisher’s share) and the composer recieves the remaining 50 percent. Like license fees, performance income is highly variable and dependent on the nature of the usage; local radio usage can yield modest income – perhaps a few dollars each time it is played. Repeated use in a primetime network TV show could generate thousands of dollars.

WHY DOES THIS CHART FLUCTUATE?

Revenues for music royalties tend to vary from quarter to quarter for many reasons. Public performance royalties are collected internationally from hundreds of sources, so variance is inherent, but delayed distribution from performing rights organizations, inconsistent touring, seasonal popularity and one-time licenses can also be causes of peaks and valleys in performance charts.

HOW STABLE IS THIS REVENUE STREAM?

The average yearly royalty amount generated by this listing over the past three years is $20,690. Below is the revenue generated by the stream yearly:

HOW IS THIS DATA RELATED TO TOTAL STREAM REVENUE?

Royalties generated in the United States, the United Kingdom and France constitute 90.6% of the total royalties generated by this collection. The peak in UK revenues in Q1 of 2011 is attributable to a one-time license fee for the song “Love Come Down” during that quarter.

NOTE:  When it comes to remission of international royalties, occasionally certain countries choose not to remit quarterly, instead doubling up payments in quarters before or after to increase efficiencies. This explains the lack of royalties from France during Q4 of the years shown in the above graph. These royalties were remitted during other quarters.

NOTE: The peak in Q1 2011 of this listing was caused by a large, one-time collection in the UK to license the song “Love Come Down.”

WHY THESE SONGS?
“Love Come Down” was a 1982 hit single performed by Evelyn “Champagne” King on her multi-platinum, #1 album Get Loose. It reached #1 on the U.S. R&B Billboard charts and was a Top 20 hit on Billboard’s Hot 100 in several countries. It has subsequently been covered a number of times and sampled by rappers including Nate Dogg and Fabolous. The peak during Q1 of 2013 is attributable to a large radio royalty payment for the song during that quarter.“I’m In Love” was the lead single for Evelyn King’s 1981 album of the same name. It peaked at #1 on Billboard’s R&B and Dance charts and was subsequently sampled in a song by Janet Jackson. The song was recently selected for the soundtrack of the record-breaking hit video game Grand Theft Auto 5, which has already sold over 28 million copies. Royalties from this license have yet to be distributed and are therefore not included in the royalty data provided.“So Fine” was released in 1982, performed by soul singer Howard Johnson. The song was a #1 hit on the Billboard Dance chart.Together “Love Come Down,” “I’m In Love” and “So Fine” account for 85% of the revenue generated by this collection. See the below chart for specific figures on these songs.

BACKGROUND

Kashif, whose name means “inventor, discoverer and magic maker” has spent a lifetime doing just that: inventing, discovering and making magic. He is legendary; a super producer, songwriter, artist, author, director and documentarian. He has produced and written chart-topping smash-hits for Whitney Houston, Kenny G, George Benson, Barry White, Lil’ Kim, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Will Downing, Dionne Warwick, Janet Jackson, Johnny Kemp, Glenn Jones, Al Jarreau, Da Brat, Me’lisa Morgan, Johnny Kemp, Mariah Carey and Monica, to name a few.

In 1980, Kashif signed with Arista Records as a solo artist and continued his unrelenting assault on the R&B music charts with hits like “I Just Gotta Have You (Lover Turn Me On),” “Stone Love,” “Help Yourself To My Love” and the Grammy-nominated instrumental “The Mood.” In 1983, his second album Send Me Your Love resulted in two Grammy nominations for the songs “Edgartown Groove,” featuring Al Jarreau, and the instrumental “Call Me Tonight.”

In 1985, he received another Grammy nomination for an instrumental piece entitled “The Movie Song.” He also wrote and produced “Inside Love” for his musical idol George Benson. It was during this time that he met and launched the career of then-unknown Kenny G with the electrifying songs “Hi How Ya Doin” and “Nighttime In Tribeca.”  In 1985, Kashif teamed up with then-newcomer Whitney Houston. The result was the smash-hit “You Give Good Love,” which instantly sent her career into the stratosphere. Kashif also produced, and was Whitney’s duet partner on, “Thinking About You,” a single from Whitney’s astounding debut album. This album went on to become the best-selling debut album by a female artist. Kashif also produced “Where You Are” on Whitney’s second project; the result was a 15 million copy–selling album entitled Whitney.

On November 14th, 2004, Kashif was inducted into the R&B Hall of Fame as a “Living Legend.” That same year, Janet Jackson’s hit “R&B Junkie” utilized a sample of “I’m In Love,” which was both written and produced by Kashif.

Kashif now lives in Maui, Hawaii where he plans to help provide educational and arts programming for youth and others interested in the music and entertainment industries. He is currently producing and directing a ten-part documentary series, entitled The History Of R&B Music and Its Influence On World Culture, for worldwide distribution.
