Hip-hop superstar Logic has signed a multi-album agreement with BMG. Here’s what the deal encompasses.
Logic’s new multi-album global partnership will allow him to own his sound recordings. It is his first new label deal since his debut album Under Pressure was released in 2014. References to his new partnership with BMG feature on ‘Sayonara,’ the last song of Logic’s latest album Vinyl Days.
“There’s a lot of bullshit in the music industry,” says Logic about his new BMG deal. “I’m just glad to move on to a place where I can be independent, and respected as an artist, and feel like I’m in control of my career.”
“As an artist, creator, and entrepreneur, Logic is the perfect fit for BMG and we are excited to join forces,” adds Tim Reid, SVP, Repertoire & Marketing, BMG. “He has a unique authenticity that has consistently enabled him to remain among the best in the business.”
Logic emerged in 2010 and has separated himself from the hip-hop pack as one of the most prolific artists of the past decade.
“Our new partnership is an incredible opportunity to begin the next chapter of Logic’s career and further expand his brand,” says Dan Gill, BMG’s EVP, Recorded Music, Los Angeles. “Everyone at BMG is well-positioned and prepared to amplify his creative vision and elevate his music to the next level.”
Logic debuted Under Pressure, his first full-length album in 2014. It topped the charts at #4 on the Billboard 200 before going Platinum-certified by the RIAA. In 2015, he dropped The Incredible True Story, followed by Everybody in 2017.
He made his literary debut with the fictional Supermarket in 2019. He was the first hip-hop artist to debut at #1 on the New York Times paperback fiction bestseller list. The accompanying soundtrack of the same name hit the #10 of the Billboard Alternative Albums chart, another first for Logic.
