Sony Music Publishing Latin has announced a new partnership with Neon16 – the media and entertainment company run by Lex Borrero and producer Tainy – which also involves one-time Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola, who formed a joint venture with Borrero last year.

The alliance will see the Sony publisher support Neon16’s new music publishing company 22 Publishing, and also collaborate with its new partner to “create key opportunities for the company’s roster across music, film, and television”.

Says Borrero of his new music publishing venture: “Our goal is to create a platform for producers and songwriters to build their brand and their business to go beyond the music. 22 will go beyond servicing their music and catalogue, providing our writers with an opportunity to develop their limitless potential”.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Latin America and US Latin at Sony Music Publishing, Jorge Mejia, adds: “Tainy and Lex Borrero are one of the most formidable and visionary teams in music today. Our partnership with Neon16 and Tommy Mottola adds an incredible new dimension to our long-term relationship with them and will be a vehicle for nurturing the newest and most exciting talent for years to come”.

22 Publishing’s roster includes: Albert Hype, Jota Rosa, Gaby Morales, Ivanni Rodriguez, Rozo, Jodosky and Dylan Fuentes.
