Beyonce Joins Husband Jay-Z At Warner For Major Global Publishing Deal

Not one to be shown up by her hubby, Beyonce just nabbed her own global publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music.  Just one day after Jay-Z made his own announcement.

 

Deets inside....

It's one thing to make your cash with albums and tours but it's a while other to lock in long term consistent money that comes whether you're working or not.  Singer/songwriter Beyonce knows the deal, so she just signed her own global publishing deal with a publishing powerhouse

It’s an honor to join Warner/Chappell Music and to continue working with my friend Jon Platt,” commented Beyoncé in the Warner/Chappell announcement release. “I trust his vision and admire his professionalism, and I look forward to our partnership.”

Jay-Z signed a similar deal for himself and his Roc Nation artists to gain compensation for their writing.  Billboard reports:

Beyoncé has signed a global publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music, Billboard has learned exclusively. Effective immediately, Warner/Chappell -- headed by chairman/CEO Cameron Strang -- will administer the 17-time Grammy winner’s future songwriting, including her anticipated next album.

....

Beyoncé is the latest high-profile addition to the Warner/Chappell roster. Earlier this week, it was announced that Jay-Z and his Roc Nation firm had also signed worldwide publishing administration deals with the publishing company. In addition to Mike Will Made It, who co-produced Kanye West’s hit single “Mercy,” recent Warner/Chappell signings include the acquisition of Miramax’s film music catalog.

Big moves for our fave power couple.

 

The Randomness:

1.  Ja Rule gets out of upstate NY prison....to go straight into federal custody for his tax evasion charges.  STORY

2.  Soledad O'Brien confirms that she is exiting her morning show on CNN, and is in talks for new role with the network.  STORY

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

If you're a new songwriter

If you're a new songwriter you have to give up a percentage of your publishing if she uses your song so lots of the song her name is on she don't write. its just a shake down.

Stop with the name one female

Stop with the name one female that can..... Beyonce stands out in a sea of mediocre female pop artists. When I look at my catalog of music, it's more real R&B and neo-soul and those genre's of music will never get the recognition that pop music does, although I would argue that the artists are more talented than Beyonce. Just not as famous, not enough money and not the same goals with their music. Same thing goes for this bubble gum rap vs. real hip-hop. There is really only one true pop diva at a time, Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, Brittney.

When you say catalog of music, do you mean a beat down dusty cd case? FYI, no one gives a shit about what's in your catalog of music. Who the fuck are you anyways?

ok werk it bey. making bossy

ok werk it bey. making bossy moves.....love her but i do not believe she writes songs. she probably contributes to a few words or pays to have her name labeled as one of the song writers. lol ive looked up a lot of her songs before and its always a bunch of songwriters and then beyonce's name somewhere in the mix. i don't think she is slow or dumb at all like most of the people on here do but i agree that she isn't very articulate and her vocabulary is limited when she is publicly speaking. she's still my fave female entertainer
litebrite's picture

Yeah I think most people know

Yeah I think most people know that she's not a singer/songwriter. At least not the way someone like Ne-Yo is. But I can't knock her. She can't be too dumb if she got these people to sign her to a deal despite being a mediocre writer. Kudos to her.

So what was Neyo doing for

So what was Neyo doing for her, and the Dream, It's ok to admit Stan's Bey can't speak let alone write Ciara can dance better and Mariah can sing better. beyonce vocals are average even her dad said it. She just grinds harder.
TeaNicole's picture

As stated neither of those

As stated neither of those artist can top Bey at this moment. Ciara may can dance better but where the heck is she??? Yeah ok. You're right, Bey isn't the BEST singer or dancer ever but name a artist that can top her right now? A Ciara and Mariah concert vs a Beyonce one? Bey would sell circles around those two combined. Love Mariah though by the way.

Again to garner perfection for all the wrong reasons will reveal ones true intentions, and in her case it's more about that title than true artistry, bahe Which ain't even the majority..Po' tink tinks!

I agree to an extent. Beyonce

I agree to an extent. Beyonce is hands down one of the best in this generation for her particular style of music. But what does that really mean? I give her credit because she's a hardworking black woman doing great, positive things in the industry. Still, it's hard for me to be a stan because it's not like she's competing in the 80s and 90s when there was talent galore. The industry has changed SOOOO much that she's been able to rise to the top of a batch of artists with very marginal talent. She's not the vocalist that Whitney and Mariah were and IMO does not make iconic music. I have a CD of Mariah's greatest hits from the 90s that I still play non-stop. I only play Beyonce's songs the first year or so after they've been released (w/ the exception of Brown Eyes -- that's my joint). I also might be a little biased/salty because some of my fave artists with great vocal & writing talent don't get much credit. For example, India Arie and Vivian Green make music that I will be playing for my children someday. But artists like them never get acknowledged and have to struggle just to get their albums released.

And this is Beyonce's fault?

And this is Beyonce's fault?
LBA1's picture

It's not a question of if

It's not a question of if it's her fault. I'm just stating that people constantly comment on Bey being the best in the business and then ask us to "name one artist better than Bey." Well depending out what the criterion is, I can name several better because I enjoy their music more. But if it's about popularity and media appeal, then of course it's Beyonce. It's not to take anything away from her, because I respect her grind and compared to some these other pop stars, she's a good role model. But you can't judge talent in a vacuum. The artistry in music that's considered iconic today wouldn't hold a candle next to the likes of many of our legends. And those who do produce lasting music today don't get the shine they deserve because they don't fit into this generation's image driven celebrity. But to finally answer your question, no, it's not her fault. I blame society :)

Pathetic bitches if you have

Pathetic bitches if you have proof that beyonce don't write her music put up links showing it. Until stop the lies. And stop believing everything you hear.

To all these hating bitches

To all these hating bitches that say beyonce can't right need to shut the fuck up. Beyonce wrote All Destiny's Child albums except the last one Destiny Fulfilled. Beyonce Wrote Survivor #Fact And she wrote some of the songs to each of her albums. And beyonce won Song writer of the year back in early 2000s for her writing. So bitches take a fucking seat and stop hating. Y'all dismiss.

I guess she's going to be

I guess she's going to be writing a lot of nursery rhymes huh? LOL!
