A month ago, Spotify was calling Venezuelan Danny Ocean the "hottest unsigned Latin artist on Spotify." The accolades came in the wake of a single song, "Me rehuso," which has steadily climbed Spotify’s playlists and now sits at No. 32 on its Global Top 50 chart. The only two other songs in Spanish that are higher are "Despacito" and Maluma's "Felices los 4," both by major superstars.
Now, Ocean is unsigned no more. The singer/songwriter has been scooped up by Warner Music Group, Billboard has learned, in a joint partnership between Atlantic and Warner Music Latin.
Sources say Atlantic will work Ocean’s English language albums and singles while Warner Music Latina will work his Spanish output.
