Catalog rights are generally sold by artists with long careers. Previously Bob Dylan and Sting have been quite famous for doing so. But in recent years, it is quite normal for young artists to sell catalog rights as album sales are not generating the money that they used to do before.

The lack of ch-ching from albums throws artists to depend on tours. Previously covid has been a major enemy to that. All of this is making artists run for alternate money-earning methods and selling catalog rights is quite a good one.

In September 2022, Justin shared the heartbreaking news about the suspension of his Justice World Tour saying that “exhaustion overtook me.” Well, this is not the first time that Beiber has canceled his tour for reasons known best by him.

Justin has canceled many concerts in the past. While some of them were because of his Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, the reason for others is still unknown. People who have been following Justin for a long time have been speculating that canceling tours brought money issues to his doorstep which forced him to sell catalog rights.

By seeing Beiber’s lavish lifestyle and inability to score some dollars in the past, the above-mentioned reason can be true.
