Maluma has extended his worldwide administration deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the company announced today. The Colombian artist is among the most popular Latin acts and is up for a best Latin pop album category at the 2020 Grammys for the album “11:11.” He won a Latin Grammy for best contemporary pop vocal album for “F.A.M.E.” in 2018. Maluma has released three albums under the Sony Music Latin label.

“I am very happy to continue being part of the Sony/ATV family,’ said Maluma. “They continue to believe in me as a composer which has been one of my biggest goals in recent years. I’m excited for everything that is about to happen…we are a team and together we have built my career globally. What comes next is to keep writing great music and bringing happiness to the world!”
