Janelle Monáe Signs Exclusive Global Administration Deal With Sony Music Publishing

The music won’t stop anytime soon!

Sony Music Publishing has just announced that they have signed Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, actor, and activist Janelle Monáe to an exclusive, worldwide administration agreement.

The innovative and multi-talented entrepreneur has garnered eight Grammy nominations through the sultry sounds and musical journey she guides us through with her blend of soul, R&B, rap, jazz, and classical genres. Monáe has co-founded her own label imprint, Wondaland Arts Society, and they have recently launched its production arm, Wondaland Pictures. She has displayed her acting chops in several critically acclaimed films including Moonlight, Hidden Figures, Harriet, The Glorias, the television series Homecoming, and most recently starred in the horror film, Antebellum. She is scheduled to start filming the highly anticipated sequel Knives Out 2.

“As an artist who is constantly reinventing myself, I feel like I’m just getting started,” said Janelle Monáe in a written statement. “I am excited about partnering with Big Jon and the rest of my new Sony family to help shape the future of music in the record industry as well as the fashion, and tv and film space.”

Sony Music Publishing Chairman and CEO Jon Platt said, “I have been chasing the opportunity to work with Janelle since the beginning of her career. I am very grateful to welcome her to Sony Music Publishing, and I look forward to building something incredible with Janelle and the Wondaland Arts family.”

“Janelle Monáe’s powerful influence as a songwriter is undeniable – her music speaks volumes for so many. We are proud to partner with Janelle and her team to further amplify her voice and create the best opportunities for her songs across all platforms,” said Sony Music Publishing President, Global Chief Marketing Officer Brian Monaco.

Monáe’s music has been heavily influenced by her collaborative duo of producers Nate “Rocket” Wonder and Chuck Lightning, who are both also signed to Sony Music Publishing. The duo is widely recognized for their work as core architects behind Janelle Monáe’s Afro-futuristic album manifestos: Metropolis: Suite I: The Chase (2008); The ArchAndroid (2010), The Electric Lady (2013), and Dirty Computer (2018).
