The new deal, made in collaboration with Blxst’s record label and publishing company Evgle, will include all of Blxst’s past and future work.

“Blxst is a multi-talented creator and Evgle is a dynamic company, and they both need a publishing partner to support their mission of producing innovative and quality music,” Evgle’s Attorney, Karl Fowlkes, added in a closing statement. “Throughout this process, the team at Warner Chappell has shown that they are excited to invest in Blxst and Evgle.”
This year Blxst also took over Tik Tok with his song “Chosen” gaining over 150 million streams, and was nominated for multiple awards for his music such as: Best New Hip Hop Artist at the BET Hip Hop Awards and Best R&B/Soul Male Artist, Album/Mixtape of the Year, Best Song of the Year and Best New Artist, at the 2021 Soul Train Awards.
