The cover is made by the pop legend Timbiriche and has been named “Muriendo lento” – and is the second most played song by Swedish songwriters in the country between 2013 and 2019.
STIM is now testifying to increased revenues for Swedish music creators from Mexico.
The Swedish copyright organization has an agreement with the Mexican equivalent – but due to administrative problems, as of 2018, they have not been able to pay compensation sums to the Swedish artists. The problem has now been solved and STIM members will therefore receive compensation afterwards for the period 2013–2019.
“Mexico is a giant music market, so I am very happy that we can now pay the music allowance from there to our members. When you look at the curve of how fast Swedish music is growing in the country, I am absolutely sure that Swedish songwriters will achieve even greater success. in Mexico in the future “, says Casper Bjørner, CEO of STIM, in a press release.
Among the most successful songs by Swedish songwriters are also “Valiente” with Paty Cantú which is written by Erik Palmqvist and Mats Hedström, “Believer” with Imagine dragons, by Robin Fredriksson and Mattias Larsson and the Max Martin song “Can ‘t stop the feeling “, performed by Justin Timberlake.
