via the press release
Warner/Chappell Music, the global music publishing arm of Warner Music Group Corp., announced it has signed a worldwide administration agreement with The Runners, the hit production team comprised of Jermaine “Mayne” Jackson and Andrew “Dru Brett” Harr. As part of the agreement, Warner/Chappell will administer both Jackson’s and Harr’s interests in all of their future works and select catalog titles.
The Runners have built a solid reputation as a leading hip-hop production team and have also achieved critical and commercial successes in both Pop and R&B. They work across an expanding range of musical styles and collaborated on hit songs for a number of popular songwriters and producers, including Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, T.I., Trey Songz, Rick Ross, Usher, Chris Brown, Akon, Keyshia Cole, Fabolous, Ludacris and Mary J. Blige.
Mayne and Dru are extraordinarily talented songwriters who started out with great success in the hip-hop world. To see them expand the scope of that success into a broader range of musical genres like pop and R&B is especially exciting. We are proud to have them join the Warner/Chappell family and look forward to opening new doors for them.
- Scott Francis, President, Warner/Chappell Music, and Chairman and CEO, Warner/Chappell Music U.S.
We are excited about creating lots of smashes together.
- Jermaine “Mayne” Jackson
It is gratifying to be in business with a publishing company that has the resources and talent to allow us to have continued success.
