Cazzu, Nicki Nicole, Bizarrap, C. Tangana and Kany García also sign worldwide publishing agreements with Sony Music Publishing Latin.
Sony Music Publishing’s Latin division has entered into an exclusive multi-year worldwide publishing agreement with Colombian brothers and hitmakers Manuel and Julian Turizo. Recording artist Manuel Turizo, who is signed to Sony US Latin, broke out with 2017’s “Una Lady Como Tu” and has released a string of hits since, co-written with brother Julián. Most recently, “La Nota,” featuring Myke Towers and Rauw Alejandro, peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart, and “Mala Costumbre,” with Wisin and Yandel, peaked at No. 4 on the Global Ex US chart.
They’re the latest in a string of high-profile Latin signings for Sony since the beginning of the pandemic. In the past nine months, the publisher also scooped up Myke Towers, who is dominating global charts; Argentine rising stars Nicki Nicole and Cazzu; Argentine producer Bizarrap; Spanish star C. Tangana; Colombian producer Sky; Puerto Rican rapper Jay Wheeler; and multi-Latin Grammy winner Kany García.
“It’s been a hugely prolific time,” says Jorge Mejía, president & CEO of Sony Music Publishing for Latin America and US Latin. “There are many possibilities to sign and discover.”
