The reveal happened on Friday, May 20th as the holders of these 15 Queen Apes anxiously awaited the artwork and song pairing for their one-of-one NFTs.

"This is a huge opportunity for emerging artists to push forward their careers through web3 by attaching themselves and promoting their music to an already established, loyal and passionate NFT community," said Starkov. "In addition, we're giving a generous revenue share of 45% streaming to the holders of these Queen Ape music NFTs. This is an opportunity for emerging artists to be introduced to thousands of people who will be incentivized to promote them."

The Queen Ape NFT soundtrack partnership with artists is a win-win for emerging musicians and for NFT holders, and it is one of the first NFT collections of its kind.

"This partnership gives emerging artists who didn't have the bandwidth or the pathway before, an opportunity to get involved in NFTs for the first time," said Ryan Gaines, CEO & Founder of Mutiny Recordings. "This Queen Ape partnership allows these artists to jump head first into the whole NFT world and have something they can promote as an artist in web3."

The reveal of the one-of-one music NFTs have driven up the value and therefore the price of each Queen Ape holder's individual piece.

"In the formula we came up with, if you acquire an NFT with a music trait featuring a relatively unknown recording artist, you have the potential to share in their success if and when they blow up," shared Gaines.
