Their third studio album ‘Little Queen’ has reached double and triple platinum in Canada and United States, respectively. In 1985, HEART released their eighth studio album which produced the band’s first No. 1 single, ‘These Dreams’ and was certified platinum five times and nominated for a Grammy Award for ‘Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal’.

Wilson, who has been ranked as one of the greatest female guitarists of all time by Gibson, was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2013 with her sister Ann. That same year, she and her sister Ann, also a member of HEART, received a star on the Walk Of Fame in Hollywood.

Round Hill Music’s acquisition comprises a significant share of Nancy Wilson’s master artist royalties and administration rights on Nancy Wilson’s neighboring rights income.

The catalog has significant exposure to streaming, comprising 35% of revenue mix, with the balance being comprised of 2% physical, 7% download, 13% sync and 4% other. Neighboring rights income comprises 39% of the catalog’s revenue. In terms of geographical exposure, 61% of the revenue is from the U.S., while the balance is from other countries.

“I initially recorded ‘Daughter’ for the film, a powerful story about sex trafficking in South Africa. I was drawn to the global tragedy of human trafficking and the lyrics sung from a women’s perspective also mirror the power of the girls’ untold stories. This film is a revelation and sheds meaning and light on these realities. Trafficking is a global phenomenon that impacts women around the world. I recorded this version as an anthem to them.”
