Not one to be shown up by her hubby, Beyonce just nabbed her own global publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music. Just one day after Jay-Z made his own announcement.
It’s one thing to make your cash with albums and tours but it’s a while other to lock in long term consistent money that comes whether you’re working or not. Singer/songwriter Beyonce knows the deal, so she just signed her own global publishing deal with a publishing powerhouse
It’s an honor to join Warner/Chappell Music and to continue working with my friend Jon Platt,” commented Beyoncé in the Warner/Chappell announcement release. “I trust his vision and admire his professionalism, and I look forward to our partnership.”
Jay-Z signed a similar deal for himself and his Roc Nation artists to gain compensation for their writing. Billboard reports:
Beyoncé has signed a global publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music, Billboard has learned exclusively. Effective immediately, Warner/Chappell — headed by chairman/CEO Cameron Strang — will administer the 17-time Grammy winner’s future songwriting, including her anticipated next album.
Beyoncé is the latest high-profile addition to the Warner/Chappell roster. Earlier this week, it was announced that Jay-Z and his Roc Nation firm had also signed worldwide publishing administration deals with the publishing company. In addition to Mike Will Made It, who co-produced Kanye West’s hit single “Mercy,” recent Warner/Chappell signings include the acquisition of Miramax’s film music catalog.
