Cardi B signs to Warner Chappell

Cardi B has confirmed that she has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Warner Chappell.

“I’ve always admired how the Warner Chappell team support their songwriters and artists and I look forward to a thriving and successful partnership with them”, says the rapper.

Warner Chappell’s President of US A&R, Ryan Press, adds: “Cardi is a defining artist of our culture – a master lyricist and show-stopping performer who’s already racked up a deep collection of hits after just six years in the game. Her distinctive voice, fearless authenticity, and unmistakable style have elevated her into a world of her own. All of us at Warner Chappell couldn’t be more excited to join forces with her as she continues her incredible creative evolution”.

Coming ahead of her long-awaited second album, the deal covers Cardi B’s recent and future releases. News of the rapper shifting from Sony to Warner when it comes to the management of her new songs was first reported by Variety back in August. The new agreement also brings her publishing under the same roof as her recordings – her record deal being with Warner’s Atlantic label.
