It has been announced that Stormzy has made the move to a major label by partnering with Atlantic Records UK.
The partnership between Stormzy’s #Merky label and Atlantic was announced via the Grime star’s Instagram page.
Max Lousada, CEO, recorded Music, WMG and Chairman & CEO, WMUK, said:
“Stormzy and #Merky are a cultural force whose music makes everyone listen. Talent, truth, energy and relevance – they represent music at its most powerful. We’re proud to have them in the family.”
Alec Boateng, A&R director, Atlantic Records UK, added:
“You get into A&R to work with the best of the best and you hope you end up with special talent. Stormzy is that special talent, he’s an incredible artist and he has so much to offer the world with his music. It’s been a privilege to have had a ringside seat from the beginning of his explosive entry in the mainstream and I’m super excited about the next phase in our creative partnership – with him and the brilliant #Merky team. This is huge.”
