LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has signed an exclusive, worldwide administration deal with multiplatinum, Grammy-nominated artist Logic.
The songwriter, artist and producer has amassed billions of streams and sold over five million albums worldwide.
His newest album, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Top 200 with the album’s title track earning more than 20 million streams and 10 million collective video views.
Commenting on the new partnership, Logic said: “I’m truly excited to begin my new creative partnership with UMPG. My conversations with Jody Gerson, David Gray, and those who I have met thus far have been inspiring and I know they will be a fantastic help to bringing my creative visions to life.”
David Gray, UMPG Executive Vice President / Head of West Coast A&R added: “Logic is a supremely creative artist and songwriter with a tremendous work ethic. From his earliest days creating mixtapes, he’s grown into a superstar who has conquered writing, rapping, singing, producing and beyond. Logic is at the top of his game and only going up. The UMPG team looks forward to delivering outstanding opportunities in support of his incredible music.”
In April 2019, Logic also became the first rapper to be a New York Times No. 1 bestselling author with his novel Supermarket topping the Paperback Fiction list. The book was accompanied by a soundtrack album of the same name, which debuted in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Alternative Album chart.
Logic will kick off the North American leg of his The Confessions of a Dangerous Mind Tour this upcoming fall. The 26 city trek will make stops in Portland, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta, Toronto, Brooklyn, Chicago and more.
