The Female-Led Queen Apes Collection by Apocalyptic Apes Revealed 15 Queen Ape One-of-One Music NFTs Paired With Female Empowerment Songs by Emerging Music Artists
LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 24, 2022 / The female-led Queen Apes collection by Apocalyptic Apes raised over $1.5M and sold out in three hours of public sale last month, spearheaded by Katherine Boiciuc, Jillian Valentin and LisaJo Canez. On Friday, 15 Queen Ape NFTs were revealed as ‘one of one’ music NFTs paired with female empowerment songs by emerging music artists.
Out of the 8,888 Queen Apes that have been minted, 15 were revealed as one-of-one music NFTs paired with songs by emerging artists including Krysta Youngs, Kali J and Farah Mitha. The reveal happened on Friday, May 20th as the holders of these 15 Queen Apes anxiously awaited the artwork and song pairing for their one-of-one NFTs.
Beyond the artwork and music, founder of Apocalyptic Apes Bill Starkov revealed that holders of these 15 Queen Ape music NFTs will also receive 45% streaming and licensing revenue of the song attached to their NFT.
“This is a huge opportunity for emerging artists to push forward their careers through web3 by attaching themselves and promoting their music to an already established, loyal and passionate NFT community,” said Starkov. “In addition, we’re giving a generous revenue share of 45% streaming to the holders of these Queen Ape music NFTs. This is an opportunity for emerging artists to be introduced to thousands of people who will be incentivized to promote them.”
The Queen Ape NFT soundtrack partnership with artists is a win-win for emerging musicians and for NFT holders, and it is one of the first NFT collections of its kind.
“This partnership gives emerging artists who didn’t have the bandwidth or the pathway before, an opportunity to get involved in NFTs for the first time,” said Ryan Gaines, CEO & Founder of Mutiny Recordings. “This Queen Ape partnership allows these artists to jump head first into the whole NFT world and have something they can promote as an artist in web3.”
The reveal of the one-of-one music NFTs have driven up the value and therefore the price of each Queen Ape holder’s individual piece.
“In the formula we came up with, if you acquire an NFT with a music trait featuring a relatively unknown recording artist, you have the potential to share in their success if and when they blow up,” shared Gaines.
