Warner Chappell Music has signed a worldwide publishing deal with Ana Mena—the most streamed female performer in Spain and Italy.
Over the last three years, Mena has had five singles reach the #1 spot on the Spanish radio charts and has built an audience of six million monthly listeners on Spotify. She has received more than 1.2 billion streams across all DSPs. Her Spanish language adaption of “Música ligera” won Song of the Year at the Los40 Music Awards—Spain’s most prominent music award show.
Ana Mena released her second album called Bellodrama in March 2023, landing her first #1 record after it topped the Spanish Top 100 Albums chart. Her last two collaboration singles, “Las 12” with Belinda and “Quiero decirte” with Abraham Mateo, have racked up more than 78 million streams and more than 45 million streams respectively.
“Songwriting has always been such an important part of my artistry so I couldn’t be happier to work with the Warner Chappell Music team as they help me develop my writing even further,” Ana Mena adds about the deal. “I’m looking forward to collaborating with their worldwide roster and using their global network to connect with even more international fans.”
“Ana is without doubt one of Southern Europe’s biggest names and we’re delighted to welcome her to Warner Chappell Music. Her songwriting excels on her latest album, Bellodrama, and her recent singles have propelled her to new heights,” adds Santiago Menéndez-Pidal, President of Southern Europe, Warner Chappell Music. “Ana has a unique ability to cross borders, having enjoyed success in Spain, Italy, France, and Switzerland, and we’re excited to help her break into even more markets. We believe Ana will be a true international star.”
She began her music career with her first single, “No Soy Como Tú Crees” in 2016 before collaborating with Italian star Fred De Palma on his single, “Una volta ancora” in 2018. The track went 6x Platinum in Italy and has helped Mena reach a massive fanbase within Italy.
