Sony Music Publishing has signed Brazilian superstar singer Anitta to a worldwide publishing agreement, the company announced on Monday.
While the singer has released four albums and has been a superstar in Latin America and other territories for years, 2021 saw her U.S. breakthrough single “Girl From Rio” reach the top 40 on its way to racking up more than 100 million total streams. She has also hit recently with “Faking Love” ft. Saweetie, “Me Gusta” ft. Cardi B and Myke Towers, “Tócame” ft. Arcangel and De La Ghetto, and “Fuego” with DJ Snake and Sean Paul.
In recent months Anitta — who appeared at Variety‘s Hitmakers ceremony in Los Angeles last month — has been working in the studio with hitmakers Max Martin and Ryan Tedder, among others, finalizing her fifth studio album, “Girl From Rio.”
At Sony, she will be working closely with SMP’s U.S. and U.S. Latin Creative teams, including U.S. SVP Creatives Amanda Hill and Katie Welle, and Monica Jordan, Director, Creative, U.S. Latin, according to the announcement.
Anitta said, “I’m excited to join the Sony Music Publishing family. I can’t wait to continue sharing my music on a global scale and I look forward to what this new partnership will bring!”
Brandon Silverstein, Anitta’s manager and founder/ CEO of S10 Entertainment added, “We’re incredibly excited for Anitta and the team to partner with Jon Platt and the Sony Music Publishing family. We look forward to working with them to execute on a global scale and we can’t wait for what tomorrow brings.”
