Juanes Signs With Warner/Chappell Publishing

Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Juanes, one of the world’s biggest Latin music artists. The Colombian-born singer has won 23 Latin Grammy or Grammy awards — he is the most-nominated artist in Latin Grammy history — and his latest album, “Mis Planes son Amarte,” went No. 1 in 14 countries.

“I’m very excited to start this new stage in my songwriting career with Warner/Chappell Music alongside Jon Platt and Gustavo Menendez, both of whom I’ve known for years,” Juanes said, shouting out the company’s CEO and president of Latin America. “I know that they share my love and eternal passion for music.”

“It’s an honor to have the chance to work with such an iconic songwriter like Juanes, whose music has helped shape the Latin music industry and reached people all over the world,” said Menendez. “He’s constantly pushing boundaries and reaching for new heights, and we are thrilled and humbled that he trusts us to be a part of this new stage in his songwriting career.”

Previously a member of the rock band Ekhymosis, Juanes has released seven solo studio albums since 2000, three of which  reached No. 1 on Billboard’s U.S. Latin Albums chart. In addition to earning multi-platinum status in Spain, Mexico, and Argentina, Juanes’ third studio album, “Mi Sangre,” was certified 8-times platinum in the United States.

Outside of music, Juanes has been a vocal activist for victims of anti-personnel mines, acting as a Goodwill Ambassador for the nonprofit organization United for Colombia and establishing the Mi Sangre Foundation. For his humanitarian work, Juanes was awarded France’s highest cultural honor, L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.

Later this year, he will join the cast of “La Voz España” (Spain’s version of “The Voice”) as a coach.
