Jason Derulo has signed a new record deal with Warner Music’s Atlantic Records in the US. It brings the musician back into the Warner fold, albeit with a much more favourable deal.

Derulo was previously signed to what was then known as Warner Bros Records. More recently, he has collaborated with Atlantic itself on some single releases, but via the Warner division’s alliance with Mike Caran’s Artist Partner Group. The new deal sees his sign with Atlantic directly.

“For this next phase of my career finding a 50/50 partner and owning my masters was important to me, and the fact that Atlantic understood my vision from a creative and business perspective makes this a perfect match”, says Derulo. “I want to thank Julie, Craig, and the entire Atlantic team and all the fans who continue to support me”.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have found a home”, he adds. “I’m gearing up for the most exciting era of my career. I can’t stress enough how great it feels to be with an incredible label that believes in my vision as much as I believe in their abilities to move mountains in the music industry globally”.

The aforementioned Craig Kallman and Julie Greenwald, CEO and COO of Atlantic respectively, add in a joint statement: “Jason’s relationship with WMG began with a string of multi-platinum successes at Warner Records. Over this past year, we’ve been fortunate to work successfully alongside him through our partnership with Mike Caren’s APG, which led naturally to bringing Jason fully into the Atlantic family with this new long-term deal”.

“He’s an amazing singer and songwriter, an incredible dancer, and a phenomenal performer”, they go on, “and we’re THRILLED to welcome him to the label”.
