Reservoir has signed a new worldwide publishing deal with Rufio Hooks. This is good news for Reservoir, because he’s one of the co-writers on BTS hit ‘Butter’. The deal includes his share of that song and his future works.

“I am excited to team up with Reservoir and start this next chapter of my career”, says Rufio. “I think the culture that they have built in both Nashville and LA is really special”.

Reservoir EVP of Creative, John Ozier, adds: “Seasoned songwriters dream of achieving the kind of record-breaking success that ‘Butter’ has, but the fact that this is Rufio’s first cut is utterly extraordinary and only speaks to his remarkable talent. He has such a strong ability to write across various genres, and we’re eager to tap into his natural gift and identify future collaborations for him across the industry”.
