16 May 2013
As part of an ongoing joint venture with Ludacris, Read & Write Publishing, Imagem Music USA has signed worldwide, multi-year co-publishing agreements with singer/songwriter J. Sol and producer Arch Tha Boss.
J. Sol, a Brooklyn native from a musical family, gained attention and exposure from radio personalities including Wendy Williams and Funk Master Flex with his debut release "Born to Love You." He has since toured with Grammy Award-winner Ne-Yo and written extensively with award-winning Nigerian artist D'Banj. He also co-wrote and is featured on "Top of the World," the theme song for the 2013 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
"I'm beyond excited about working with Imagem," said J. Sol. "So far their team has been extremely hands on and accommodating. I'm really looking forward to a very successful and game changing partnership."
"J. Sol is Curtis Mayfield's 'Pusherman' mixed with Ne-Yo's 'Let Me Love You.' I am simply honored to have him as a part of the team and plan on making history with him," commented Sean Famoso, Director of Creative at Read & Write.
Arch Tha Boss, born Armond Redman, started making beats as a teenager for local artists in his hometown of Mt. Vernon, IL. As he used the internet to market himself to the world, he forged a Twitter relationship with rapper/producer Yung Berg which led to his signing with Yung Fly Movement (YFM). Today Arch is best known for producing Driicky Graham's "Snapbacks and Tattoos" which went gold last year. He has also collaborated with Nipsey Hussle, Los, and Mia Rey and is currently in Atlanta working on Future's forthcoming release.
"I'm excited about doing this deal with Imagem and am ready to see what the future has in store for us," mentioned Arch.
Famoso remarked, "Arch's sound is way before his time and once the world catches up he will probably be unstoppable. I can't wait until the masses get to enjoy what I've had the pleasure of hearing first!"
"J. Sol just gets what it takes to be successful and Arch is a breath of fresh air on the production end," said DJ Tunde, Director of A&R at Read & Write. "I'm looking forward to lots of success with both our new signees."
