Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) has signed indie label and publisher Rich Music to an exclusive publishing agreement.
Rich Music catalog, comprised mostly Latin urban music, includes Justin Quiles, Dímelo Flow, DJ Africa and Chris March. The Quiles catalog alone includes a stake in Anitta and J Balvin’s hit “Downtown” as well as tracks featuring the likes Bad Bunny, Don Omar and Farruko.
Rich was founded in 2007 by the father-son team Rich and Josh Mendez. The publishing deal with Universal follows a long-term distribution deal with INgrooves announced last May.
Rich is the latest urban signing for UMPG, which recently inked deals with Dominican artist/producer Brasa (Juan Frías), Puerto Rican producer Guelo Star, who co-wrote Wisin & Yandel’s “Todo Comienza en la Disco,” and White Lion Records artist Joyce Santana.
