RIOTUSA, the hit producer behind Ice Spice’s biggest singles including “Munch (Feelin’ U)”, “Princess Diana (Remix)” and “In Ha Mood”, has signed to Warner Chappell Music.

Warner Chappell Music has signed a worldwide publishing deal with up-and-coming producer and songwriter RIOTUSA, Ice Spice’s main collaborator on most of their hit singles. Most recently he worked with her and Nicki Minaj on her Princess Diana (Remix) and produced Ice’s In Ha Mood, Munch (Feelin’ U), Bikini Bottom and more.

Riot has had five Billboard Hot 100 hits this year for his work with Ice Spice and has been at #1 on Billboard’s Top Producers list for several weeks.
