John Legend Cashes In On Catalog Sale

Bruce Springsteen did it, now John Legend. A little over two weeks after spending a reported $50 million on the catalog of ZZ Top, BMG and KKR have officially acquired the song rights of John Legend.

Outlets including the LA Times have reported on this latest high-profile music-IP deal, which was reportedly finalized back in September.
