Cardi B Signs Publishing Deal With Sony/ATV

Published

on

Sony/ATV Music Publishing has signed a worldwide deal with Cardi B, the company announced today. She recently made history with her lead single, “Bodak Yellow”, when it became the longest running solo female rap song to hold the #1 spot Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Cardi B said: “Oooo, I’m so happy to be with my new family Sony/ATV. ‘Bodak Yellow’ is only the beginning and we’re just getting started.

Sony/ATV Co-President, U.S. Rick Krim said: “As ‘Bodak Yellow’ has already demonstrated, Cardi B is one of a rare breed of unique artists who the industry only witnesses occasionally. We are honored that Sony/ATV will get to work with this special talent who is not just impacting music but pop culture as well.” Senior Director, A&R Jennifer Drake added: “Cardi B is honest, real and refreshing and has the confidence to say exactly what she is thinking and feeling. It’s tangible and you can connect to that.

If you aren’t familiar with Cardi, she is the new kid on the block, but she is definately striking while the iron is hot. While many doubted her, including me, she made it to the top of the charts. Before the chart success she was a staple on the VH1 reality TV show, Love & Hip Hop New York, where she really brought life back to the weakest extension of the franchise. Cardi is quick witted, honest, and funny…..and always ready to fight! Last December, Cardi decided to leave the show and pursue her career, as she signed a deal with Atlantic Records, the same label that signed Love & Hip Hop’s K. Michelle! Sounds like a smart move, get in, get out, and get that money!

What can I say except, Go BIH! You did it, you doin it, and I’m enjoying watching your success! You made me shut my fat ass up, because I never seen Bodak Yellow being as big as it is! I been seeing some of these photo shoots too, I wouldn’t be surprised if a modeling deal is close behind. Not sure about the big endorsements tho, with her ill temper, she might be a liablity….but I’ve also noticed a kinder, sweeter side of her lately.

“Super Freaky Girl” gets moved to the Pop Categories at the Grammys… And Nicki “isn’t mad”

Published

According to TheHollywoodReporter,

Minaj originally submitted the track — which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in August — to the rap categories at the Grammys, but the decision was overturned by the Recording Academy’s rap committee, according to a source. That group determined that Minaj’s playful and pop-sounding song sampling Rick James’ 1981 classic “Super Freak” should compete for best pop solo performance instead of rap awards.

TheHollywoodreporter

In my honest opinion, this was the right move! The song was produced by a Pop producer and it was also promoted as a Pop song. This isn’t an attack on Nicki Minaj, as it has happened across all genres. Some of the more notable people to have this happen would be Kacey Musgraves, The Weeknd, Iggy Azalea, Lil Nas X and so many more.

However, Nicki took to twitter to share her thoughts, per usual:

At this time, Big Energy by Latto, hasn’t been announced which category it will be in. It will likely be in the running for the same Pop awards, based on the fact that Dr. Luke also produced it and the Remix featured Mariah Carey’s rendition of Fantasy, which was also nominated in the Pop category.

When Aaron hit the stage his electrifying performances compared him to the greats the came before him which is exactly why Nick Cannon and so many others saw the star power in him.
