Sony Music Publishing has inked deals with two of Latin music’s promising acts, Blessd and Micro TDH, Billboard can exclusively announce on Monday (Oct. 18).
Marking their first major music publishing deal, the two singer-songwriters and rappers were each signed to a worldwide multi-year music publishing agreement with Sony Music Publishing.
Part of Colombia’s new wave of hip-hop and reggaetón artists, Blessd (real name: Stiven Mesa Londoño in Antioquia), broke out during the global pandemic with various viral hits such as “Imposible (Remix)” in collaboration with Maluma.
“Having the support of a company like Sony Music Publishing is gratifying and a new beginning for my career,” he said in an official statement. “The idea is to project bigger goals every time and acquire more and more knowledge. All my achievements are in the hands of God and in prayer, I put all the people involved so that blessings may come to all of us.”
Micro TDH (Fernando Daniel Morillo Rivas), who got on the radar with Piso 21’s “Te Vi” and recently entered the Latin Pop Airplay chart with his Myke Towers-assisted “El Tren,” notes: “I am very grateful to life, to God, to my family, my team and my fans, also to Sony Music Publishing for trusting in my talent at this point in my career and providing support to make this project bigger and bigger.”
In the summer of this year, the Venezuelan artist inked an exclusive record deal with Warner Music Latina, and earlier this month, Blessd signed an exclusive worldwide distribution and licensing agreement with Warner Music Latina in an alliance with JM World Music and Cigol Music.
Both artists will release their debut studio albums this year. Blessd’s Hecho en Medellín, is scheduled to launch on Oct. 27 and Micro TDH’s Nueve will drop on Dec. 9.
