This transaction is the latest episode in a long series of copyright buyouts or the publishing of catalogs of dead or living artists, but deemed timeless, which have become precious assets, particularly with the streaming revolution.

The buyout was made as part of Hipgnosis' partnership with financial management firm Blackstone, which announced in late 2021 that it would provide $1 billion to help Hipgnosis continue its music purchases.

At 28, "Justin Bieber is one of the best-selling musical artists of all time," says Hipgnosis.

Justin Bieber is one of the youngest artists to lead such an operation.

Among the most important transactions in the last two years are the sale of catalogs by Bob Dylan, or Bruce Springsteen, for which Sony would have put more than 550 million dollars on the table.

Before them, Tina Turner, Neil Young or the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others, had already carried out such operations.
