Great job for a project designed by the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC)! Indeed, KINGSHIP, a 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 connect the metaverse even more with the real world! Also, if you want to know more, here are the details.
BAYC has new fans: producers Beyoncé and Bruno Mars
With no pretensions, KINGSHIP bills itself as “the first Bored Apes supergroup signed to a major label.” Actually, he’s kind of right, since this musical group came straight out of the metaverse, followed by Universal Music; moreover, he intends to show his seriousness. In addition, very large manufacturers will follow the BAYC group for even more credibility.
KINGSHIP recently announced that Chauncey Hollis, better known as “The Killer”, and James Fauntleroy will now be in 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 enters the metaverse!
Close connection between the music industry and the metaverse
Yuga Labs does not produce the KINGSHIP group, but Jimmy McNelis, owner of the NFT members, is directly responsible for it. At present, the name has not been revealed, and the group recalls that it produced Gorillaz, another virtual band whose members are represented by monkeys. It should be noted that the Mars brand and KINGHSHIP are now partners, and recently it was M&M’s who offered to print a collection of sweets with the image of the band members.
It’s 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, such as a musical group. This is another new model that serves as a small revolution: collectible pieces have value and can also be used to strengthen the ecosystem. Either way, BAYC is building its influence as it is the second best-selling NFT collection of all time with over $2.4 billion in total sales.
For your information, KINGSHIP’s next album is part of a multi-year history that Joshua created for the BAYC Monkeys that includes album releases, metaverse performances and more. Amid the growing talk of Web3 technology and blockchain 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.
