We broke the news last September that Wizkid had signed to Sony Music/RCA Records, but there was no official confirmation at the time. Well, here it is!
RCA Records tweeted this moments ago, sharing the official press release put out via Billboard.
Nigerian singer/songwriter WizKid has found a new home. As previously heard on Drake‘s Hot 100-topping hit “One Dance” (which he co-wrote and co-produced), the Afrobeats star has signed a multi-album worldwide deal with RCA Records/Sony Music International.
“It’s hard for me to describe what I do, since I work with rhythms from Afro-Beat, reggae, hip-hop, dance hall and others,” WizKid told Billboard in a statement. “What’s important to me is for music to be real, authentic, raw and timeless. I don’t wanna be boxed in to any one genre.”
In some more exclusive news, Wizkid signed a Publishing deal with Sony/ATV a couple of weeks ago, banking some fresh dollars in the process.
Wizkid‘s “Sweet Love” has just been premiered on Beats 1 Radio. Also look out for the visuals to “Come Closer” featuring Drake.
