DI GENIUS INKS WITH WARNER CHAPPELL
1/30/20

Warner Chappell has signed a global co-publishing agreement with award-winning songwriter and producer Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor. The deal includes all of his future work. McGregor has written and produced songs for such artists as Drake, Ne-Yo, Estelle, Sean Paul, Lianne La Havas and Shakira

Warner Chappell Co-Chair and CEO Guy Moot, and U.S. President of A&R Ryan Press said: “Stephen has been one of the most influential songwriters and producers on the reggae/dancehall scene for more than a decade. His critically acclaimed, chart-topping work has taken him far beyond his Jamaican roots and made him much in demand by hitmakers across the globe. All of us at WCM are looking forward to being part of his musical journey.”

McGregor said: “It’s an honor to get a chance to work alongside Guy, Ryan, Shani (Gonzales) and the rest of their amazing team. Guy has believed in me from the beginning, and he truly cares about the music itself, beyond just the numbers. I’m excited and ready to make history with the Warner Chappell team.”

Son of legendary reggae artist Freddie McGregor, the Jamaica native first made his mark on the “riddim” scene at age 15. Since then, McGregor has contributed to Grammy-nominated and/or winning albums from Drake, Shakira, Damian Marley, Lianne La Havas, Mali Music and Chronixx.
