NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) – Rihanna has inked a worldwide deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, covering the megastar’s entire songwriting catalog plus future works.
The agreement includes her Hot 100 top 10s “Love on the Brain” and “Needed Me,” as well as No. 1s “Rude Boy” and “Work,” her multi-platinum collaboration with Drake.
Rihanna, who was previously signed to Warner Chappell, is the first artist to follow executive Jon Platt to Sony/ATV since he took over as chairman/CEO in April. Platt ran Warner Chappell from 2015 through 2018 so it’s something of a reunion for the two.
Over the course of her more than decade long career, Rihanna has secured 14 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s, seven RIAA-certified multi-platinum albums, 12 Billboard Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards, seven MTV Video Music Awards, and nine Grammy Awards. Additionally, she is currently the world’s wealthiest female musician.
