BURNETTE MAKES EPIC MOVE TO ISLAND

LaTrice Burnette has been appointed Executive Vice President and General Manager of Island Records. She will be based in New York and report directly to Island President Darcus Beese.

Burnette joins the Island after eight years at Epic Records, most recently as Senior Vice President of Marketing, where she oversaw campaigns for Future, DJ Khaled, Travis Scott and others.

“When I had the opportunity to meet with LaTrice and discuss my vision and her ambition, it was crystal clear that LaTrice is the future of the new generation of Island Records,” Beese said. “She will be an invaluable new member of the senior team.”

Burnette’s career began at Roc-A-Fella Records and included stops at Atlantic, Asylum and Bad Boy.

“I am absolutely thrilled to join the family at Island Records, a label rich in culture and a place where true artistry, artist development and most of all, music, reign supreme,” Burnette said. “I’m excited to dive into Island’s culture and continue to open up the roster to hip-hop, urban and R&B genres.”
