Royalties
Music royalties, a percentage of sales that goes to a person that has worked on the track. Pros of these royalties are that whatever percentage you agree on you will get paid. Cons of royalties is that sometimes producers, songwriters, engineers, etc don't get paid these royalties and have to take the issue to court.
