Nick Jonas signed a global publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group this week, the company’s chairman and CEO Jody Gerson has announced.
“I’m so thrilled to be a part of the Universal family, I’m looking forward to being a part of this amazing year to come,” said Jonas in a video.
The news comes as the pop star’s hit “Jealous” topped the the Mediabase Pop Airplay Chart this week. Through the deal, UMPG will represent Jonas’ songs on his Nick Jonas album that was released in November, handling creative, administration and licensing services worldwide. “Jealous” is among his six writing credits on that set.
“Nick Jonas has a long future ahead of him, not only as a major pop star but as a really inventive songwriter and producer,” said Gerson. “We’re delighted to be working with him and our label partners at Island/Republic, and extremely proud of his well-deserved No.1.”
