.PAAK PACTS WITH WARNER CHAPPELL

Anderson .Paak has inked a worldwide administration agreement with Warner Chappell Music in partnership with Dr. Dre’s Hard Workin’ Black Folks.

The four-time Grammy Award-winning songwriter, rapper, singer, producer, director and multi-instrumentalist recently topped the singles charts with “Leave the Door Open,” his collaboration with Bruno Mars in their group Silk Sonic. A native of Oxnard, Calif., .Paak has released four full-length albums, the most recent being Ventura, issued in 2019 on Aftermath/12 Tone.

“Anderson .Paak is a true music man who’s bringing back funk and soul with style and originality, earning him a massive global following,” said Warner Chappell Music Co-Chair and CEO Guy Moot and Co-Chair/COO Carianne Marshall in a joint statement. “He’s been wildly successful as a songwriter, producer and performer and his incredible versatility has landed him collaborations with a diverse range of top artists as well as a raft of awards.”

Warner Chappell Music President of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press, noted: “Anderson .Paak is already at the top of his game, yet he continues to reach higher and higher. He effortlessly brings an optimistic and feel-good vibe to every song he releases, and his latest hit with Bruno Mars is well on its way to becoming one of the top songs of the summer. He truly exemplifies everything a great songwriter can be, and it’s an absolute honor to get to be a part of his journey.”
