Tina Turner’s catalog still generates $3.7 million a year in ‘syncing’ (songs for TV commercials or used in movies), sales (downloads, vinyl) and streaming.
Most of that $3.7 million annually comes from streaming outside of the U.S.A which is estimated to be around $2 million, with another $920,000 coming from streaming in the U.S.A.
The remaining $700,000 annually comes from syncing.
(All royalties from these grosses go to BMG, which bought the rights to Tina Turner’s music in 2021.)
BMG became a partner in all of Tina Turner’s musical interests at this time. Under the agreement, BMG secured ownership of the rights to her music, name, image and likeness for brand association, merchandising and sponsorship uses.
Tina Turner had not recorded a new original album this century and she had all but retired from the music world in 2009.
Tina Turner’s entire catalog of recordings has reportedly sold more than 100 million records to date,
