Brown recently announced an official partnership between himself and Universal Music Group to create the brand-new Champagne Therapy Music Group.

Tommy Brown is known as a hitmaker.

He most recently produced for Ariana Grande, working on several of her songs, including “7 Rings” and “Thank U, Next.” Brown has also produced full albums for the female music superstar.

But that’s just the latest in a string of high-profile collaborations: Brown has also worked with the lights of Nas, Big Sean, The Black Eyed Peas, Ludacris, T-Pain, T.I., 2 Chainz, Macy Gray, and Meghan Trainor.

According to the deal structure, all artists and producers at Champagne Therapy Music Group will work with Universal Music Group for the production and official release of their latest musical ventures.  Additionally, Universal Music will work closely with artists from Champagne to execute full-scale marketing campaigns and promotion for their music.

For UMG, the deal offers a strong future pipeline of superstars and hits, all of which can be appropriately blown up by the mega-label.

Tommy Brown and UMG are envisioning Champagne Therapy Music Group as a new type of music label.  Brown’s goal for Champagne Therapy is to make it a boutique-style music label that focuses on true musical artists that leave a mark on the world of music.

That’s a lofty goal indeed for pop music, though plenty of Brown’s collaborations already have long-term potential.

Tommy Brown was born in Pittsburg and was inspired by Anthony Jones, aka Tone, also a Pittsburgh native.  Brown started making music in his mother’s basement but eventually shifted to Los Angeles to pursue his career as a musician and a producer.  Of course, that turned out to be a well-chosen path — and UMG’s Santa Monica HQ may have helped to facilitate the Champagne handshake.
