Argentine trap star and songwriter, Ecko, has signed a worldwide co-publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music, Billboard can exclusively reveal.

“Ecko’s unmistakable style has made him a leader in the Latin trap movement, and we’re excited to keep the momentum going as we welcome him to the Warner/Chappell family,” said Gustavo Menendez, Warner/Chappell Music, Latin America president, in a press statement.

Ecko, who currently counts with 2 million followers on Instagram, kicked off his career at 15 years old participating in freestyle competitions. Now, at 19 years old, the singer is considered a pioneer in the Latin trap movement in Argentina thanks to his songs “Disputa,” “Dealer de Skills” and the 2017 summer anthem “Dorado.” The deal covers his full catalog and future songs.

“I am very excited to partner with Warner/Chappell in this new phase in my career,” added Ecko, who made his stateside debut performance at the 2019 SXSW Festival, becoming the first Argentine urban artist to perform at the festival. “Gustavo and his team understand my vision, and I look forward to continuing to grow as an artist and composer alongside them.”

This marks Ecko's first exclusive publishing agreement with a major publisher. He is currently recording new music in Miami.
