HarbourView Equity announces purchasing the recording and publishing assets of ‘Hot Girl Bummer’ singer-songwriter and producer Blackbear.

HarbourView Equity Partners, the alternative asset management company founded by Sherrese Clarke Soares, has announced an agreement to purchase select recorded assets and the publishing catalog of multi-platinum singer-songwriter and producer Blackbear. 

The deal encompasses notable compositions like “IDFC,” “Hot Girl Bummer,” and the double-platinum certified “Do Re Mi,” with the latter two tracks holding prominent spots on the Billboard Hot 100 for 42 and 25 weeks, respectively.

“This catalog provides unflinching honesty offering an insight into difficult life journeys that many global fans can relate to. This transparency creates a powerful sense of unity mobilizing his mission of inspiring his audience to be unapologetically themselves,” says Sherrese Clarke Soares. 

“His brilliant artistry has opened doors for him to work with artists such as Justin Bieber, Pharrell Williams, and Machine Gun Kelly. We are ecstatic to work with Blackbear and his team to make a further positive impact through authenticity.”

Blackbear has established himself as a prominent artist, captivating audiences with meaningful lyrics and a unique blend of genres since making his mark in the mid-2010s. With six studio albums under his belt, Blackbear’s latest offering, the pop-punk album, In Loving Memory, was created in collaboration with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and released in August 2022.

Additional collaborations have included works with Linkin Park, G-Eazy, 2 Chainz, and Machine Gun Kelly and co-writing Justin Bieber’s six-time platinum single “Boyfriend.” Beyond his solo endeavors, Blackbear’s creative prowess extends to his involvement in the alternative hip-hop duo Mansionz alongside singer-songwriter Mike Posner. He also serves as the co-founder and CEO of the management collective Beartrap Management.
