Rihanna to sign with Sony, two albums coming

Rihanna is expected to join Sony/ATV Music Publishing, multiple sources tell Variety, a move that would reunite the singer with her longtime publisher, Jon Platt, who took the reins at Sony Music Company as chairman and CEO earlier this year.

The move comes as no surprise, as Rihanna, along with Jay-Z and Beyonce, have worked closely with Platt throughout much of their careers, but it is a bold one for the executive and a coup for the world’s largest music publisher. Sony/ATV is home to more than three million copyrights including hits by Frank Sinatra, the Beatles, Taylor Swift and Sia.

Rihanna joined Platt at Warner/Chappell — where he was CEO from 2015 until taking the Sony/ATV post — shortly before the 2016 release of “Anti,” her most recent album. Sources say she has been working on two albums for the past couple of years, one a pop/R&B outing and the other a dancehall release, that could drop at any time. This move to Sony/ATV, if accurate, could presage the release of one of those albums.

I thought she was signing to Sony Music, but it's actually Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Haha. Got semi-excited for a moment.

Doesn't really mean anything.

 

All of Roc Nation were going to follow Jon to SATV. This is for publishing (her songs / songwriting when it is used in adverts, tv, radio etc). Doesn't really have anything to do with the release of her albums (only one, not two as was previously reported), she is still signed to Roc Nation/Universal for records.

No. No new label; it's purely for music publishing.
