Ice Spice Inks With PPL For International Royalties Collection.

Music licensing company PPL has announced the signing of Ice Spice for the collection of international neighboring rights royalties. She joins a host of artists who signed with PPL recently for international collections including Lewis Capaldi, Libianca and Central Cee.

Ice Spice is a true star of a multiplatform digital age, building a huge following across multiple social and digital platforms and recording tracks with some of her biggest idols early in her career. The New York City native exploded onto the Billboard charts in 2023 and closed the year with the most ‘Hot 100’ top-five singles.

She has featured on some of the biggest tunes of the past year including ‘Barbie World’ with Aqua & Nicki Minaj, ‘Boy’s A Liar, Pt.2’ with PinkPantheress, and a remix of Taylor Swift’s ‘Karma’. In 2023, Ice Spice was nominated for multiple industry awards and won prestigious accolades including BET’s Best Breakthrough Hip-Hop Artist, Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Power Player Rookie of the Year, and BMI’s R&B/Hip-Hop Impact Award. This month, she was honored at the 2024 Billboard Women in Music Awards with the Hitmaker gong.

Headquartered in London, PPL licenses the use of recorded music in the UK and collects neighboring rights royalties on behalf of performers and recording rightsholders worldwide. On signing with PPL, Ice Spice will benefit from the expertise of its 200+ team, cutting-edge data processing technology, and a network of over 110 agreements with collective management organizations (CMOs) internationally, as the company begins to collect royalties on her behalf for the use of her music on radio, TV and in public spaces around the world.

Welcoming Ice Spice to PPL, Chief Membership and People Officer Kate Reilly said: “We’re delighted that Ice Spice has chosen PPL to collect her neighboring rights income globally. As we celebrate our 90th year of business, Ice Spice and her team recognize PPL as an organization that consistently delivers great service and has competitive rates in place to maximize returns for its mandated members.”


Established in 1934, PPL exists to help ensure that those who invest their time, talent and money to make recorded music are fairly paid for their work.

As the UK’s music licensing company for more than 140,000 performers and recording rightsholders, we license recorded music when it is played in public or broadcast on the radio or TV in the UK and then distribute the fees to the performers and recording rightsholders we represent. Through a network of international agreements with collective management organizations (CMOs) in other countries, PPL is also able to collect royalties for performers and recording rightsholders when their recorded music is played around the world.

“We are committed to delivering excellent customer service and do not retain a profit for our services. After the deduction of operating costs, the licensing revenue is distributed fairly and efficiently to the performers and recording rightsholders we represent, based on the use of their music.”
