SONY/ATV ADDS A LITTLE MUSTARD

Sony/ATV’s Jennifer Drake and Jon Platt flank new signing Mustard after adding a clause to the contract that no condiment jokes will be made in the company newsletter.

Sony/ATV Music Publishing has announced—with relish—that it has signed songwriter/artist/producer Mustard. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist).

One of the first signings on the watch of new Chairman and CEO Jon Platt, Mustard won a Grammy for co-writing Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up,” produced Lil Dicky and Chris Brown’s “Freaky Friday,” and co-wrote and co-produced most of YG’s debut album My Krazy Life.

Platt called Mustard—born Dijon McFarlane—"an amazing songwriter and producer, whose talents have underpinned countless hit records by some of the world’s biggest artists.”

 Sony/ATV Senior Director, A&R, Jennifer Drake noted, “Mustard’s creative talent transcends his reputation as a hit-making super producer. With Ella Mai, he has also demonstrated a rare gift for identifying, cultivating and developing a new generation of stars. It’s a vision we completely support and anticipate a long and successful partnership with him.”

Mustard has his own label, 10 Summers Records, a JV with Interscope that released Mai’s debut. His latest single, “Pure Water” featuring Migos, was released in January and will be followed by the release of his third studio album this summer.

Mustard said: “Happy to join Jennifer and Big Jon at Sony/ATV where I already have friends in the building and have seen the good work they can do with my music. Excited to continue to build my catalog and look forward to all that’s coming down the pipeline.”
