Capitol Music Group and Motown Records have entered into a partnership with Glass Window Entertainment, LLC – the label founded by Dominique Jones, also known as the chart-topping artist Lil Baby.

Rylo Rodriguez is the first artist signed to Glass Window Entertainment/Motown Records.

Been One, Rodriguez’s new album, recently debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200, released via Universal Music Group‘s Virgin Music.

“We are excited to welcome Dominique, Rylo and the Glass Window Entertainment team to Capitol Music Group/Motown Records,” said Michelle Jubelirer, Chair & CEO, Capitol Music Group.

“Glass Window and Virgin Records have done a phenomenal job introducing Rylo. We’re thrilled to support this remarkable artist and upcoming Glass Window releases.”

Dominique Jones said: “I’m overly excited for Rylo and for his fans and the world to really get to see him on a larger platform! It’s been a long time coming with Rylo and even longer to go! We got work to do and money to get!

“Thank you to Motown/Capitol Music Group and Universal Music Group for trusting my process and I’m looking forward to a wonderful partnership!”

Los Angeles-headquartered Capitol Music Group announced earlier this year that Motown Records would be returning to its group of labels as a subsidiary.

Motown was spun out by CMG parent, Universal Music Group, as a frontline label entity in 2021. It previously operated as part of CMG.

CMG’s in-house labels now include Motown, Blue Note, Astralwerks and Capitol Christian Music Group.

CMG has also partnered with independent label, 10K Projects, for recorded music releases from Ice Spice.

Ice Spice, real name Isis Naija Gaston, has racked up over 587 million global Spotify streams to date of her biggest hit, Boy’s A Liar Pt 2 – a collaboration with Pinkpantheress.

Addressing Capitol Music Group staff and business partners at a January event in L.A, Michelle Jubelirer said: “The most thrilling part of working in music is getting to watch the people who create it develop and shine – so let’s spend this afternoon celebrating how fortunate we all are to have such a vibrant and talented roster of artists.

“I couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this new year as we continue building the future of Capitol Music Group together.”Music Business Worldwide
