Universal Music Publishing Group signs HRVY to global deal

Universal Music Publishing Group has signed rising British pop star HRVY to an exclusive publishing deal.

In 2017, HRVY’s debut EP Holiday featuring Redfoo and Stylo G reached No.2 on the iTunes album chart and No.1 on the Spotify Viral Chart.

His second EP Talk To Ya included the single Personal, which racked up over 180 million YouTube views.

2018 has seen the singer/songwriter continue to build on his success, with Latin-influenced Hasta Luego (with rising Cuban-American pop star Malu Trevejo) and latest hit single I Wish You Were Here.

The 19-year-old has already amassed 3.9m Instagram followers, 1.8m YouTube subscribers and 1m Facebook followers.

Outside of the studio this year, HRVY supported The Vamps on their arena tour while also embarking on his own sell-out tour of the UK, Ireland and Europe – including a capacity gig at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire.

“HRVY is a superstar in the making. He’s hardworking and totally charming with real musical talent.”
