HarbourView Equity announces the acquisition of the recording and publishing assets of singer-songwriter and producer Blackbear “Hot Girl Bummer”.

HarbourView Equity Partners, the alternative asset management company founded by Sherrese Clarke Soares announced an agreement to purchase select recordings and the publisher’s catalog from multi-platinum singer-songwriter and producer Blackbear.

The deal includes notable compositions such as “IDFC,” “Hot Girl Bummer,” and the double platinum-selling “Do Re Mi,” with the latter two having prominent spots on the Billboard Hot 100 for 42 and 25 weeks, respectively.

“This catalog offers unwavering honesty and offers a glimpse into difficult walks of life that many fans worldwide can relate to.” This transparency creates a powerful sense of unity and mobilizes his mission to inspire his audience to uncompromisingly be themselves,” says Sherrese Clarke Soares.

“His brilliant artistry has opened the doors for him to work with artists such as Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams and Machine Gun Kelly. We are thrilled to be working with Blackbear and his team to create another positive impact through authenticity.”

Blackbear has established himself as a prominent artist, captivating audiences with meaningful lyrics and a unique blend of genres since making his name in the mid-2010s. With six studio albums under his belt, Blackbear’s latest effort, the pop-punk album, In loving memory, was created in collaboration with Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker and was released in August 2022.

Other collaborations have included work with Linkin Park, G-Eazy, 2 Chainz and Machine Gun Kelly, as well as co-writing Justin Bieber’s six-time platinum single “Boyfriend”. Beyond his solo endeavors, Blackbear’s creative prowess extends to his involvement in alternative hip-hop duo Mansionz alongside singer-songwriter Mike Posner. He is also co-founder and CEO of the management collective Beartrap Management.
