Tina Turner sells her 60-year music catalog
Singer and living legend Tina turner sold its music catalog to BMG. The catalog contains 60 years of music, including hits such as “Private Dancer” and “What’s Love Got to Do With It”.
Turner has sold over 100 million records during his impressive career. The sale of the catalog means that BMG now owns the rights to Turner’s shares on his past recordings. The international music publisher also owns the rights to the singer’s name and image.
Warner Music will remain Turner’s label and BMG is now a partner in his music ventures. The deal was reportedly worth $ 50 million.
The music icon issued a statement regarding the sale of the catalog. Turner, 81, said protecting his work was personal and important.
âLike any artist, protecting my life’s work, my musical heritage, is something personal,â Turner said. “I am convinced that with BMG and Warner Music my work is in professional and reliable hands.”
Turner’s work is unmatched. She won 12 Grammy Awards throughout her career and is appreciated for her hits such as “Proud Mary”, “The Best” and “Nutbush City Limits”.
The music legend was born in Brownsville, Tennessee, under the name Anna Mae Bullock. At the age of 18, she began singing with Ike Turner’s group as a backing vocalist. The early days of her career and life with Ike were dramatized in a blockbuster movie starring Angela Bassett titled “What’s Love Got To Do With It?”
Turner recently posted the music video for his 1989 single “I Don’t Wanna Lose You” on Twitter in August to announce that the video was available on YouTube.
âThe video for the incredible I Don’t Wanna Lose You is now available in HD, head over to YouTube to watch it now! I Don’t Wanna Lose You (The Singles) is also out now, featuring both B sides of the original single. https://lnk.to/TinaTurner_IDontWannaLoseYou_HD.
Turner was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with Ike Turner in 1991, and in October, the legend will be inducted again as a solo artist.
Fans believe Turner deserves a lot more money than $ 50 million for all of his work. Technically, BMG gives him 50 cents for each album sold, which is the business of the century.
“Only $ 50 million ï¸ Tina you were worth so much more.”
âI should have sold it at least 500 thousandths. “
“The facts are low !!! SMH, it should have been more.
BMG also issued a statement regarding the Turner catalog. BMG CEO Hartwig Masuch said the company is honored to manage the singer’s interests and will take that responsibility seriously.
âTina Turner’s musical journey has inspired hundreds of millions of people around the world and continues to reach new audiences. We are honored to take over the management of Tina Turner’s musical and business interests. It is a responsibility we take seriously and will diligently pursue. She is truly and simply the best.
Yes she is.
