Warner Chappell has signed Anderson .Paak to a worldwide publishing administration agreement, in partnership with Dr Dre’s Hard Workin Black Folks. The deal comes ahead of the release of the debut album from .Paak’s new project with Bruno Mars, Silk Sonic.

“Anderson .Paak is a true music man who’s bringing back funk and soul with style and originality, earning him a massive global following”, say Warner Chappell co-Chairs Guy Moot and Carianne Marshall. “He’s been wildly successful as a songwriter, producer, and performer, and his incredible versatility has landed him collaborations with a diverse range of top artists as well as a raft of awards for his solo work. We’re THRILLED to welcome him to the Warner Chappell family and proud to represent him and his phenomenal repertoire of songs”.

Warner Chappell’s President of US A&R, Ryan Press adds: “Anderson .Paak is already at the top of his game, and yet he continues to reach higher and higher. He effortlessly brings an optimistic and feel-good vibe to every song he releases, and his latest hit with Bruno Mars [‘Leave The Door Open’] is well on its way to becoming one of the top songs of the summer. He truly exemplifies everything a great songwriter can be, and it’s an absolute honour to get to be a part of his journey”.
