PLATT'S GOT MONÁE IN THE BANK

Janelle Monáe and her Wondaland team, Nate “Rocket” Wonder, left, and Chuck Lightning, are heading to Jon Platt’s camp.

Sony Music Publishing has inked Janelle Monáe to an exclusive, worldwide administration agreement. She brings with her songwriter/producers Nate “Rocket” Wonder and Chuck Lightning.

Besides working together on Monáe’s four albums, the most recent being 2018’s Dirty Computer, they are co-founders of her imprint, Wondaland Arts Society. They will also be collaborating on Monae’s next recording project. 

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.”

Wondaland Arts Society recently added a film-production arm, Wondaland Pictures.

“As an artist who is constantly reinventing myself, I feel like I’m just getting started,” Monáe said. “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 fashion, TV and film.”
