A great job for a derivative project from the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC)! In fact, KINGSHIP, the Universal Music group whose members are BAYC characters, has just found its producers and things can move forward in a revolutionary way. What a way to further connect the metaverse to the real world! Also, if you want to know more, here are the details.
BAYC has new fans: Beyoncé producers and Bruno Mars
Unpretentious, the KINGSHIP group presents itself as “the first Bored Apes supergroup signed by a major”. Indeed, he is partly right as this musical group derives directly from the metaverse and is followed by Universal Music; moreover, it intends to demonstrate its seriousness. In addition, very large producers will follow the BAYC group for even greater credibility.
Recently, KINGSHIP announced that Chauncey Hollis, better known as “Hit Boy”, and James Fauntleroy, will now take over production. They are both big names in music. Note that Hit Boy and Fauntleroy worked closely with Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Arianna Grande. Real news after Madonna’s entry into the metaverse!
A strong connection between the music industry and the metaverse
It is not Yuga Labs who produces the KINGSHIP group, it is Jimmy McNelis, owner of the NFTs of the members, who is directly responsible for it. At the moment, no titles have been revealed and the group remembers producing Gorillaz, another virtual band whose members are represented by monkeys. We note that the Mars brand and KINGHSHIP are now partners and recently it was the M & M’s who proposed to print a collection of sweets with the image of the members of the group.
It is also worth noting that the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) grants NFT owners the rights to their characters. This means that people like Kanye West are free to create derivative works from it, for example a musical group. This is yet another new model that acts as a small revolution: collectible works have their own value and can also be used to strengthen the ecosystem. Either way, BAYC is increasing its influence, as it is the second best-selling NFT collection of all time, with over $ 2.4 billion in sales in all.
FYI, KINGSHIP’s next record is part of a multi-year story arc Joshua has created for the BAYC Monkeys, including album releases, metaverse performances and more. Amid the growing talk about Web3 and blockchain technology regarding the success or failure of the project, a message will be sent to the world about the viability of cryptocurrencies and NFTs in the music industry.
