Warner Chappell Music Mexico Signs Yng Lvcas

 Warner Chappell Music (WCM) Mexico has signed a global publishing deal with the charting Latin act Yng Lvcas. The hitmaker recently released “La Bebe (Remix),” which amassed 418 million views on YouTube in only three months since its release and peaked at No. 1 on its Global Top Songs chart. His newest EP, Six Jewels 23, is the third regional Mexican album to debut on Billboard’s Top Latin Album chart – also marking his second time peaking at No. 5 on the chart.

Carlos Ruíz, Managing Director, WCM Mexico, said: “It is impressive how Daniel’s amazing talent has led him to achieve a global hit at such a young age. We are very thankful to him and his team for trusting Warner Chappell to accompany him in his journey as a songwriter. His career will be full of hits that will be celebrated as great music born in Mexico for the whole world to hear.”

Gustavo Menéndez, President, U.S. Latin & Latin America, WCM, added: “Daniel is a rare talent, and we’re super excited to be walking alongside him from the beginning, in what I’m sure will be a long and successful career.”

Yng Lvcas shared: “I’m excited to sign with Warner Chappell and the future ahead with Carlos, Andrea [from Warner Chappell] and the entire team!”

A Guadalajara, Mexico native, Yng Lvcas got his start in music after performing at his high school musical when he was 15 years old. From then on, he worked on developing his songwriting skills and started vlogging and DJ’ing. In 2021, he released his eight-track corridos EP, Wup? Mixtape1, which featured the reggaeton song, “La Bebe.” The song went viral on social media and in 2023, the remix debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100, marking his first time on the chart. It also charted on Billboard’s Global 200 at No. 2, positioned itself at No. 3 in the Top 50 Global Spotify list, and hit the Top 50 in more than 15 countries. Most recently, David Guetta released his EDM remix of “La Bebe.”
