Sony/ATV Music Publishing, in partnership with Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Publishing, has signed multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated producer WondaGurl to a worldwide co-publishing deal.
WondaGurl is well known for working on hip-hop and R&B singles by artists including Travis Scott, Jay-Z, Drake, Pop Smoke, Rihanna, Bryson Tiller, Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, and many others.
WondaGurl has produced popular songs including Antidote, No Bystanders, and Can’t Say by Travis Scott, Aim for the Moon by Pop Smoke ft. Quavo, Christopher Walking by Pop Smoke, platinum single No Idea by Don Toliver, Gang Gang from JACKBOYS’ No.1 EP album, B**ch Better Have My Money by Rihanna, and Company by Drake ft. Travis Scott.
WondaGurl is also one of the youngest women to add production to a platinum-selling hip hop album due to her work on Jay-Z’s 2013 album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.
In addition to her production work, WondaGurl made the transition to a label and publishing executive by entering into a publishing joint-venture with Sony/ATV and her company Wonderchild, which focuses on developing emerging producers and giving them the chance to work with artists alongside her.
She already signed two longtime collaborators to her publishing imprint this spring.
Originally from Toronto, Canada, WondaGurl began teaching herself how to create music at 10 years old and quickly rose to prominence by winning the 2012 ‘Battle of The Beat Makers’ competition at fifteen.
Her music soon caught the attention of Drake, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar producer Boi-1da, and she became his protégé upon entering the music industry.
WondaGurl has earned several RIAA certifications, Grammy nominations, and top charting singles.
