Roc Nation announced Roc Nation Latin earlier this year, naming Dominican singer-songwriter Romeo Santos CEO. Today, Billboard announced that Roc Nation Latin will be a partner with the Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) in order to administer Roc Nation Latin’s publishing catalogue.
Romeo Santos and his manager Johnny Marines have been busy stacking up names for the Roc Nation Latin roster, signing a handful of up-and-coming names, including Vitoria “La Mala,” Jayro Rosado, Mr. Paradise Angel Perez and Karen Rodriguez, among others.
Roc Nation Latin still owns its own publishing but will be assisted by UMPG, which will provide administrative service for the newer artists that haven’t signed to publishing companies already.
Executive Vice President of the Latin division of UMPG, Alexandra Lioutikoff, is the mastermind responsible for this partnership, as well as the signing of Romeo Santos as CEO.
