Singer-songwriter Danna Paola has inked a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music Mexico.
The four-time multi-platinum Latin pop star released the viral hit “XT4S1S” earlier this year, racking up more than 1.5 million streams on Spotify in 24 hours. In its debut week, the single topped multiple charts in Mexico, including YouTube Videos Mexico, YouTube Canciones Mexico, YouTube Artistas Mexico, and Spotify Mexico’s 200 chart.
With more than 11 million monthly listeners on Spotify, Danna has quickly become one of the most streamed Mexican female artists on the platform. She has collaborated with hitmakers like Mika, Sebastián Yatra, Mau & Ricky, David Bisbal, Morat, and Cali y El Dandee, among others. Coca-Cola announced that Danna Paola will be one of three female artists performing this year’s anthem–Queen’s “A Kind of Magic”–for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
“I am thrilled to be part of Warner Chappell,” says Danna Paola on the signing. “I’ve been waiting for a music partner like this for a while now, and I couldn’t be happier! As a songwriter, I’m glad to be part of a company that supports and respects their artists’ creativity, and I’m pretty sure we’re going to create magic together!”
“Danna is an artist in every sense of the word,” adds Carlos Ruíz, Warner Chappell Music Mexico Managing Director. “Her talent, professionalism, and dedication are the basis of her solid career and why she has become an icon of her generation – not only in Mexico but in many parts of the world. She provokes a unique connection with her fans through music, and we are delighted that she has entrusted us to accompany her in all the successes that are to come.”
Danna Paola was born and raised in Mexico City and has been in the spotlight since she was four. She gained prominence in the acting scene in Mexican telenovelas in 2000. Paola released her first studio album Mi Globo Azul at six years old in 2001. She went on to release several more albums over the next two decades. In 2013, she landed the role of Elphaba in the first Spanish-language production of the Broadway musical, Wicked.
