If You’ve Got The Money, You Could Co-Own A Track With Prince!
Well, this could be a very interesting decision to spend your money on.
According to NME, one of Prince‘s early collaborators has a songwriting credit for a song called “Soft and Wet,” and the song is now up for sale as far as the songwriting credits are concerned.
The collaborator, named Chris Moon, says he’s putting up the track because he’s near retirement age, and is selling off some of his assets. Clearly, a ton of assets, because this tag comes at a whopping $490,000.
The eBay details shared this info from Chris himself:
“This song I wrote for Prince named Soft & Wet was on his first album, it was the first song we did together and it was also on his first demo tape … it is the song that started it all and launched his career.
I wrote the lyrics and Prince wrote the music. When he was getting ready to release his first album with Warner Brothers, we signed a song royalty agreement in which we equally shared in the writing credits of the song. I got the writing royalties for the lyrics, he got the writing royalties for the music and ECNIRP took the publishing. He have been sharing in the royalties of that song over all these years … and still do.”
