“LVRN is made up of inspiring young visionaries who helped to put Summer Walker on the global stage,” said Warner Chappell Music Co-Chair and CEO Guy Moot and Co-Chair and COO Carianne Marshall. “They’ve successfully built one of the most forward-looking and progressive music imprints out there and are exactly the type of entrepreneurs we’re looking to be in business with. Both of us, along with Ryan Press, Wallace [Joseph] and our whole team are excited to work with them to help even more artists, songwriters and producers reach their full potential.”

LVRN Co-founder and President Tunde Balogun and Co-founder and Head of A&R Justice Baiden said: “Our main focus since the label’s founding has been the development of artists. We are now committing the same focus and approach with publishing to develop the best songwriters, producers, and artists. It’s pivotal to continue building with a talented team around you, which is what we found with Warner, and why this partnership is so important to actualize the next step which includes the ability for the label’s publishing arm to administer writers they publish on their own and to fully partner with WCM.”

Besides BRS Kash ( “Throat Baby (Go Baby)”) and Santino, new signings at LVRN include GMK and Genio Bambino.
