The SOUR artist has signed another deal with Swift and Antonoff for the gentler “1 step forward, 3 step back” deal that grossed $ 258,379 in royalties, according to the Billboard. Rodrigo did not work with Nigro on this song, which is an interpolation of Swift’s acclaimed New Year’s Day. That means Rodrigo, Swift, and Antonoff split the royalties in three ways, with each having made about $ 86,000 so far.
Variety also notes that the music publishers also get a piece of the pie and writes: “Half of that goes to the publishers involved; in this case, Sony Music Publishing is representing Rodrigo and Dan Nigro … Now with Williams and Farro In addition to the credits, Warner Chappell Music has a piece of it too. ”
As of this week, Rodrigo and Nigro have lost a large chunk of their change by giving about $ 1 million each to their muses, not counting other fees. But “good 4 u” is going to take even more money in its hand soon: “A song like this can bring in $ 10 million,” a prominent music lawyer told Variety.
