RedOne startar etiketten 2101 i samarbete med Universal Music

Den USA-baserade svenske producenten och låtskrivaren RedOne – som bl.a har producerat Lady Gagas Bad Romance och även arbetat med artister som Michael Jackson och Akon m.fl – har tecknat avtal med Universal Music om att i bolagets regi få driva en egen label. Först ut på den nya etiketten 2101 är singer-songwritern Mohombi, som den här veckan gör entré på SverigeTopplistans plats 54 med Bumpy Ride [2101 / Island / Universal Music].

I brittiska CMJ kommenterar RedOne sitt nya label-avtal med Universal Music så här:

"I am so privileged to be in business with the Universal family in this new venture. We already have had so much success together, I know that this is the best home for my music and for my artists. Lucian [Grainge] and I share a common vision for creating sounds and platforms for new artists, not only writing hit songs, but building brands. We are incredibly fortunate to be launching with an artist like Mohombi, who has so much potential. He is a powerhouse talent … writing, singing, performing, dancing… a true entertainer. Mohombi lifts my spirits and I believe he will elevate the world with his music".
