WMG goes all-in on globally charting Argentine singer-songwriter Maria Becerra with a Warner Chappell Music publishing deal.
Warner Chappell Music (WCM) US Latin has signed an exclusive admin deal with Maria Becerra, one of Latin music’s leading voices. The agreement comes on the heels of Becerra joining the Warner Music Latina artist roster in partnership with Warner Music Group labelmate 300 Entertainment.
“Thanks to the entire Warner Chappell team for 100% trusting and empowering me and my team. I’m so thrilled and happy to officially be joining the family and continuing to grow!” shares Maria Becerra. “A huge shoutout to my managers Jose Levy, Natanael Real, and Armando Lozano for believing in me; my creative director Julian Levy; my music producer Xross; and everyone for always supporting my music vision and making me trust myself even more.”
With over 26 million listeners on Spotify, the 23-year-old Becerra has rapidly become one of the most listened-to female Latin artists globally. She was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2021 Latin Grammy Awards and took home the Visionary Award at Billboard’s inaugural Latin Women in Music gala, among other accomplishments.
“Maria is an artist in every sense of the word. Her skill as a songwriter, unmistakable voice, and confidence to create art that is authentic to her is why she has quickly become a global superstar,” says Lazaro Hernandez, VP of A&R, US Latin & Latin America, WCM. “It’s only the beginning for La Nena de Argentina, and we’re very excited to work together as she continues to challenge what’s possible in Latin music.”
“I’ve been following Maria since she erupted onto the scene, and she continues to surprise me with her incredible and relentless artistic growth. We’re very happy to finally have her in our Warner Chappell Music family,” adds Gustavo Menéndez, President of US Latin & Latin America, WCM.
“Maria has become one of the most outstanding and versatile artists and songwriters in the music scene, and it is a true honor to have a great ally like Warner Chappell to continue developing her career globally,” said Jose Levy, Becerra’s manager. “Thank you to the entire team for their commitment — we’re excited to face these challenges and reach new goals together, accompanying Maria in everything she sets out to do.”
