Sony/ATV has signed one of those worldwide publishing deals you all keep talking about with Colombian artist Maluma, who is currently enjoying plenty of chart success with ‘Felices Los 4’ – the lead single off his third album – especially in Latin America.

Maluma is already signed to Sony on the recordings side, and the new publishing deal covers his catalogue to date, including ‘Felices Los 4’, plus future works.

Confirming the signing, Sony/ATV big cheese Marty Bandier said: “Latin music’s ever growing popularity has already transcended borders, cultures, and musical styles. Maluma is uniquely positioned to be its face for the world both for today and for the future. I couldn’t be more excited that we have signed this incredibly talented songwriter and artist”.

Meanwhile Maluma himself said: “I am very happy and honoured to be part of the Sony/ATV family. This is my first major publishing deal and I know that I couldn’t have chosen a better partner to take this step with, they are the very best in the business. I look forward to taking my career as a songwriter to the next level together with Sony/ATV”.
