Warner Chappell Music has announced the renewal of a global publishing agreement with producer MAG.
MAG often collaborates with Bad Bunny, producing 15 of the 23 tracks of his album Un Verano Sin Ti. The tracks MAG created for this album have racked up an astounding 6.7 billion listens on Spotify alone.
Un Verano Sin Ti became the first all-Spanish album to top the Billboard 200 chart at the end of the year, and was also nominated for Album of the Year and received the award “Best Album Música Urbana” at the Grammy Awards ceremony in 2023.
“Guy, Ryan, Katie and the entire Warner Chappell team have provided incredible support over the past few years, and I’m excited to continue developing our partnership,” adds MAG about continuing his publishing contract with Warner Chappell Music in the future and beyond.
“Over the past few years, MAG has helped propel our culture forward with a genre—changing sound that will define our generation,” says Ryan Press, president of WCM North America. “He has a gift for creating hits that transcend language and bring people together, and all of us at Warner Chappell are looking forward to working with him as he takes the next step in his career.”
Brooklyn-born Puerto Rican-Dominican producer Marco “MAG” Borrero was discovered and mentored by singer-songwriter Max Martin. In 2020, he became the executive producer of the Grammy Award-winning album Bad Bunny El Último Tour del Mundo, which went down in history as the first all-Spanish album to reach number one on the Billboard 200 chart.
Soon after, MAG debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Producers and Latin Producers chart, as well as at number two on the Latin Songwriters chart. In 2022, he joined forces with Bad Bunny to record the very successful album Un Verano Sin Ti. Throughout his career, MAG has also collaborated with such hitmakers as Rauw Alejandro, Eladio Carrion, Arcangel, Bebe Rexha, Imagine Dragons, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.
