Colombian star Maluma has renewed his worldwide agreement with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the company announced Monday (Dec. 16) 

“We are a team and together we have built my career globally,” Maluma said in a press statement. “What comes next is to keep writing great music and bringing happiness to the world!”

The artist born Juan Luis Londoño signed the original agreement at the age of 23 in 2017, his first major publishing deal. Maluma was signed by Jorge Mejia, Sony/ATV’s president for Latin America and US Latin, with direct involvement from then-Sony/ATV chairman and CEO Martin Bandier and from Sony/ATV U.S. co-president Danny Strick.

Maluma’s album 11:11 is nominated for the best Latin pop album award at the 2020 Grammys.

“I am pleased to extend our relationship with Maluma and look forward to working with Jorge and the Sony/ATV Latin team to support his continued rise as a songwriter,” added Jon Platt, Sony/ATV chairman and CEO.

“If you spend half a minute with Maluma you realize immediately that he is an absolute superstar. We are beyond thrilled to help advance his songwriting career and can’t wait to play a part in what’s next in his songwriting life and beyond,” said Mejia. 

Maluma’s manager Walter Kolm, president and CEO of WK Entertainment, concluded, “Maluma is not only a global singer he is also a distinguished songwriter and our family at Sony/ATV understands and supports every aspect of his artistry.”
