Alicia Keys Recommits to Contract With EMI Music Publishing
While Alicia Keys may have recently parted ways with Jeff Robinson--her manager since she was just a talented 14-year-old with a budding career--she has recommitted to a long-standing relationship with EMI Music Publishing. Keys first signed with EMI to handle her publishing when she was only 15. The new expanded deal will give the company representation of Keys' deep catalog of songs for years to come.
"EMI and I have formed an incredible partnership over the years," Keys said in a press statement. "It's wonderful to have a home here that supports my artistry."
That artistry has paid huge dividends for EMI on publishing deals. Keys' catalog includes hits such as 'A Woman's Worth,' 'Fallin',' 'Like You'll Never See Me Again,' 'Superwoman' and her recent sequel to 'Empire State of Mind.' Needless to say, the embattled company is pretty excited that Keys decided not to ditch them, too.
"Alicia Keys is without doubt one of the most important and accomplished songwriters of her generation, writing music that connects with fans across the world," added Jon Platt, the president of North American creative at EMI Music Publishing. "We're proud to have worked with her throughout her career to date, and to continue to represent such an incredible catalog of songs."
