Singaporean Music Fund blackx has inked a multi-year exclusive global music rights partnership with Tanya Chua.

The partnership will see blackx managing her entire repertoire of musical intellectual property rights. Tanya Chua is Asia’s record-breaking, award-winning producer and singer-songwriter with a career spanning over two decades. Her multiple wins at Taiwan’s 2022 Golden Melody Awards for Album of the Year and Best Mandarin Album for her DEPART album are the first such win ever in the Awards’ history. Tanya is the only artist to be awarded the GMA for Best Female Singer (Mandarin) four times—in 2006, 2008, 2012, and 2022.

With the partnership, blackx will oversee musical IP rights for Tanya Chua’s musical works, including all-time hits such as Letting Go, 達爾文, 空白格, 陌生人, 無底洞, 拋物線, 失語者, 別
找我麻煩 as well as her latest award-winning album, DEPART. blackx will also manage the rights of top hits composed by Tanya Chua and performed by other renowned artists, as well as that of her collaborations with top artists including Carla Bruni, Jolin Tsai, Jam Hsiao, A-Mei, Eason Chan, Na Ying and others.

The agreement also covers Tanya Chua’s future compositions and songs, further paving the way for potential opportunities for partners.

“Making great music that not only entertains but resonates with audiences has always been my focus,” adds Ms. Tanya Chua about the deal. “This partnership with blackx will raise the bar on connecting with my fans through a variety of content formats, distribution platforms, and artistic collaborations.”

“Ultimately, I hope that my works can engage and inspire more emerging songwriters while accompanying listeners on their personal journeys throughout the years.”

“Tanya is a landmark Asian artist and her works underpin the foundation for blackx to build upon,” adds Mr. Tan Chee Meng, CEO of blackx. “We are stoked to partner with one of Asia’s generational talents who embodies timelessness, and to fulfill her passion and enable endless possibilities for her award-winning body of work—in turn creating new experiences for her fans not only in Asia, but globally.”

Tanya Chua’s works see more than 100 million streams a year. In May 2023, she performed sold-out shows in Taipei Arena to kick off her world tour, “Kisses for the World—Let’s DEPART!”
