Belgian artist Stromae has signed a big old deal with Warner Chappell which will now provide music publishing admin services to the company that manages all his projects and rights, Mosaert.

As well as overseeing Stromae’s own musical output, Brussels-based Mosaert is also involved in music video production, having worked with the likes of Billie Eilish and Dua Lipa, and even has its own fashion line.

Confirming the deal, Warner Chappell CEO Guy Moot says: “Stromae has consistently been one of the most exciting Francophone artists over the last fifteen years. His innovative approach has always put a stylistic vision at the heart of how he presents himself, and that’s helped him influence and shape wider culture. So this is a really important deal for us and we can’t wait to get work worldwide promoting his songs”.

Meanwhile, the Warner publisher’s MD in France, Matthieu Tessier, adds: “Stromae is a complete artist, whose unique creativity is expressed not just musically, but through his image and public appearances, his use of social media, creative video direction and even through his fashion design”.

“I’m so excited to start working with such an inspiring talent who has influenced artists and songwriters around the world, and to start collaborating with Mosaert’s team”, he goes on. “Representing one of the most important modern French language songbooks is a huge privilege for all of us at Warner Chappell Music and our different teams from around the world pulled together to get this deal done”.

Stromae himself comments: “Mosaert and I are really THRILLED to be joining Warner Chappell Music. This partnership will amplify our vision and help us to reach new possibilities. I’m looking forward to working together!”
