Twelve6 Entertainment announced on Thursday its new partnership with Downtown Music Publishing—the pact includes a publishing admin deal and the creation of a new joint venture. 

Downtown will provide its creative and admin services globally to Nashville-based Twelve6, whose growing roster of songwriters and artists include Old Dominion's Trevor Rosen and Jerry Flowers.

Additionally, a new JV between the two companies will focus on identifying and signing new talent. Monument Records recording artist and songwriter Alex Hall is the first signing under this new partnership. Hailing from Georgia, Hall just released his debut track, “Half Past You,” and is currently in the studio recording his debut project, produced by multi-Grammy award winner Shane McAnally, Pete Good, and AJ Babcock.

9/11/19

 

After a quick stop at the Sony-ATV gift shop where they had run out of “1” balloons, Boi-1da’s manager Simon Gebreulel, left, and Sony ATV’s Rich Christina, right, toast the songwriter with a glass of Mod Reserve.

 

Boi-1da is extending his stay in the Sony/ATV batcave. A new long-term global deal covers his entire catalog, including hits he has penned for Drake, Rihanna, Eminem and others plus future works.

Additionally, Sony/ATV and Boi-1da have signed a deal extension for their joint venture agreement Sam Fam Publishing, which launched in 2014. Among its songwriters and producers are Frank Dukes (Camila Cabello, Post Malone), Vinylz (Drake, Jay-Z), Joshua Scruggs (Khalid, H.E.R.) and Sevn Thomas (Travis Scott, Rihanna).

 “Boi-1da is a true phenomenon who has had an indelible influence on music and created an exceptional catalog of songs,” said Sony/ATV Chairman and CEO Jon Platt. “The astonishing list of superstars he has worked with shows just how much he is trusted and admired among the artist community.”

Boi-1da said: “What a run it’s been. When I first met [Sony/ATV SVP, A&R] Rich Christina over 10 years ago, he told me that he envisioned many great things in my future and he assured me that he’d be right by my side along the whole way. My tenure at Sony/ATV has been nothing short of great. It’s been a great 10 plus years and I’m looking forward to another 10.” 

Born Matthew Samuels, Boi-1da co-wrote and produced Drake’s first Top 10 hit “Best I Ever Had” and has remained one of the superstar’s closest and most trusted collaborators, having co-written “Forever,” “Controlla” and “God’s Plan.” Across his career, he has been nominated for 14 Grammy Awards and been named ASCAP Songwriter of the Year.
