Amaarae Signs Major Publishing Deal With Concord Music Publishing And Immensum Music


Ghanaian-American singer-songwriter Amaarae has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Concord Music Publishing in partnership with rights management company Immensum Music.


The deal encompasses her full catalogue and all future works, including her 2023 album “Fountain Baby,” which Variety listed as one of the best albums of the year so far.


The record blends R&B, hip-hop, punk rock, and Afropop across its 14 songs.


Amaarae has collaborated with other top artists such as Kaytranada and Amine, Stormzy, Baby Face, Janelle Monáe, Kali Uchis and global artists like CKay, Tiwa Savage and more.


In celebration of Marvel’s sequel “Black Panther: Wakana Forever,” Amaarae released “A Body, a Coffin” on the movie soundtrack EP alongside artists such as Tems, and Santa Fe Klan.


“I feel very much at home among Concord’s roster of stellar artists and I’m confident that the teams at Concord and Immensum will ensure my music is optimized in all the right global spaces,” said Amaarae.

Koch Okoye, founder of Immensum Music, added: “This deal for Ama is one we can truly call an accomplishment. I remember watching her first video for ‘Fluid’ back in 2018 and being instantly blown away by the creative merger of her unique vocal ability and visual expression. We had hoped to work with her instantly and have followed her career progression closely ever since. We’re all very happy to finally be playing on the same team.”


Jeremy Yohai, senior vice president of A&R at Concord Music Publishing, added: “Amaarae’s unique vision and approach to songwriting, place her as one of the most exciting new voices in pop music.”


In 2024 Amaarae will launch the “Fountain Baby” tour, with stops in New York, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Toronto and more.
