Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed Latin songwriter and recording artist Maluma to a worldwide publishing deal.
Under terms of his new agreement, Sony/ATV will represent the Colombian singer’s catalog of current and future songs, including his new single “Felices los 4,” as well as Shakira’s hit “Chantaje,” which he was featured on (the official music video has amassed more than 1.5 billion views on YouTube).
“Latin music’s ever growing popularity has already transcended borders, cultures, and musical styles. Maluma is uniquely positioned to be its face for the world both for today and for the future. I couldn’t be more excited that we have signed this incredibly talented songwriter and artist,” stated Martin Bandier, Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO.
In response to signing his new deal, Maluma stated: “I am very happy and honored to be part of the Sony/ATV family. This is my first major publishing deal and I know that I couldn’t have chosen a better partner to take this step with, they are the very best in the business. I look forward to taking my career as a songwriter to the next level together with Sony/ATV.”
Maluma is currently on his Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy World Tour.
