In a new agreement, Luis Fonsi and Sony/ATV Music Publishing extend their worldwide deal, which includes the Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber global hit, “Despacito.”
Fonsi, who originally signed with the publisher in 2005, expressed his appreciation for the new deal, stating: “I’m happy to continue to work with the amazing Sony/ATV family led by my longtime friend Jorge Mejia. We’ve shared some amazing moments together and I can’t wait to celebrate more.”
“In my career and perhaps in the annals of Latin music, there is certainly a ‘before Despacito’ and an ‘after Despacito’. I am honored to extend our long-standing relationship with Luis Fonsi, a history-making artist, songwriter and friend,” said Mejia, Sony/ATV President, Latin America and U.S. Latin.
Additional songs covered in Fonsi’s new extension include: “Aquí Estoy Yo,” “No Me Doy por Vencido,” “Nada Es Para Siempre,” and his current single “Échame la Culpa” featuring Demi Lovato.
Future recordings will be covered under the new agreement as well.
