NEW YORK, 24 JAN – Justin Bieber has sold the musical rights to his catalog of songs for 200 million dollars. The Wall Street Journal reports it. The pop star has signed with Hipgnosis Songs Capital, backed by Blackstone, and marks yet another acquisition of a successful music catalog, as has happened for other artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. The agreement was announced by Hipgnosis today (but without revealing the details of the sale anticipated by the WSJ), and covers Bieber’s entire catalog before December 31, 2021 equal to 290 songs released. With the deal done, Hipgnosis gets Bieber’s share of the rights to some of his biggest hits, including “Baby,” “What Do You Mean,” “Sorry,” and “Love Yourself.” With over 150 million records sold, Bieber is one of the best-selling recording artists of all time.
