Music Mogul Jay-Z & His Roc Nation Imprint Sign Global Publishing Administration Deals With Warner/Chappell

JAY-Z-HEATHROW-AIRPORT

Music mogul Jay-Z and his Roc Nation imprint has just signed a lucrative worldwide publishing administration deal with prominent companies, Warner/Chappell Music. Below is how The Hollywood Reporter is reporting the story:

Jay-Z and his Roc Nation company have signed worldwide publishing administration deals with Warner/Chappell Music. The agreements give the publisher rights to Jay-Z’s music dating to 2008 — which would include The Blueprint 3 and Watch the Throne — and all of Hova’s future work, effective immediately, while most of the rest of his catalog will transfer to Warner/Chappell by year’s end.”

The real meaning of success is being in the position to work with an individual you consider a friend,” Jay-Z said in a statement. “Jon Platt is such a person. He’s a man of extraordinary character as well as a remarkably talented executive with an ear for music and an eye for talent. It’s great to watch him grow to be one of the best in the business.”

A separate deal will put the past and future catalogs of Roc Nation’s stable of artists on the publisher’s roster immediately, including songwriters Philip Lawrence, S1, Carmen Key and British singer Rita Ora.”

I first partnered with Jay in 1996, and it’s been thrilling to work with my friend over the past 16 years as he’s grown into one of the world’s best songwriters and become a global icon,” said Platt, now president of creative at Warner/Chappell.

Happy Birthday! Rihanna Inks Partnership With MAC Cosmetics

riri68

Happy 25th birthday Rihanna! This sure is a good way to celebrate your birthday. It was just announced that Riri inked a lucrative deal with MAC cosmetics. The multi-platinum-selling international recording artist is the first artist to be a “creative partner.” The deal will help her be more creative and will have multiple collections of color cosmetics that will hit shelves throughout the year.

The first product to launch will be RiRi Woo, a lipstick inspired by her favorite MAC red, Ruby Woo. Its release will coincide with Rihanna’s Diamonds Tour concerts on May 4 and 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where MAC will open a pop-up shop on the first night to showcase the line.”

In a recent interview with WWD, Riri talked about the only downside is being media attention and her cosmetics.

The only thing the media really can get in the way of is my privacy,” said Rihanna. “Privately, yeah, it’s a pain in the ass, but at the same time they help me to get my message across. My creativity — I’ll never let anyone interfere with that — because that’s something I love. And if I’m not doing that, I’m wasting my time.

When you think of makeup, the brand that pops into your mind — for something legit — is MAC,” said the singer. Whatever color you want, it’s like ‘Let’s go to MAC.’ I’ve been using MAC on tour for such a long time it was a natural fit for me. I have always loved makeup, and I always said that if I do it, I want to do it with a credible brand.

Being creative is something that I love, so I can put that into different outlets. Music happens to be the first thing that I gravitated to, and now music opens doors to just so many different opportunities, and they all tie in. My makeup looks, my fashion looks…they help me to express myself as an artist. I think it helps people to understand me or my mood, my story.”
