Anthem Entertainment, one of the world’s leading independent music companies, announced today that they have acquired a catalog of hit songs written by internationally recognized, 3x JUNO Award and Grammy-winning, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk. The catalog includes several Kreviazuk cuts, including “Boot”, “In This Life”, “Time”, “Weight Of The World” and “Get To You” alongside certified hits and collaborations recorded by Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Drake, Avril Lavigne, Pitbull, Shakira, Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Carrie Underwood and more.
The diverse music collection acquired is comprised of several hit songs that have garnered world-wide success, and collectively billions of streams, including and most notably, “Feel This Moment” by Pitbull featuring Christina Aguilera, which topped global charts and was certified 4x RIAA platinum (USA), 4x Music Canada Platinum, 3x ARIA Platinum (Australia) and more, in addition to “Rich Girl” by Gwen Stefani which also topped numerous global charts and was certified 2x RIAA platinum (USA), Platinum in Australia, Gold in New Zealand, Sweden, and the UK.
“Chantal Kreviazuk is one of the most prolific and successful Canadian songwriters recognized today on the international stage,” said Anthem Entertainment CEO, Jason Klein. “Her extraordinary songs have not only achieved outstanding commercial success but have meaningfully influenced popular culture with a significant impact across music, film, and philanthropy, and are a prized addition to our catalog. We look forward to a great partnership with Chantal.”
“I am thrilled to begin a new and exciting partnership with Jason and the team at Anthem Entertainment, to represent songs that I have been writing throughout my whole life and career,” said Kreviazuk. “Our shared passion and enthusiasm for the work I value so dearly was made clear from our very first conversation and I am grateful to begin this new chapter together.”
The acquisition further solidifies Anthem Entertainment’s investment in the future of music publishing and recorded music rights and aligns with their mission to expand their impact and contribution towards pop culture by investing in the careers and works of outstanding songwriters and artists.
Kreviazuk made her critically acclaimed full-length debut, “Under These Rocks and Stones” in 1997. Since then, the Winnipeg born and internationally celebrated 3x JUNO Award and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and musician, classically trained pianist, actress, movie producer, philanthropist, and humanitarian, has recorded ten albums, including a live album, a holiday album and a collaboration with her husband and Our Lady Peace frontman Raine Maida under the moniker Moon vs Sun. A prolific songwriter, Kreviazuk has individually penned, co-written and collaborated on a vast catalog of hits with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Drake, Carrie Underwood, Kendrick Lamar, Gwen Stefani, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera and many more. Equally committed to helping those in need, Kreviazuk was awarded the Order of Canada in 2014 along with Maida, for their efforts to raise awareness and support for human and animal rights, mental health, education, and the environment.
