He’s a rare artist who has been able to thrive across all genres and radio formats, working with artists who span the musical spectrum, from Tim McGraw to Janet Jackson to Florida Georgia Line”.

Meanwhile Songs boss Matt Pincus added: “Having an artist and songwriter of the calibre Nelly join the Songs family is both a tremendous honour and a big step towards our goal of being the world’s leading contemporary independent music publisher”.
