Warner Chappell Music (WCM) has renewed its global publishing deal with chart-topping, powerhouse producer MAG. A frequent collaborator of Bad Bunny, MAG produced 15 of the 23 tracks on the blockbuster album Un Verano Sin Ti, which led to his No. 1 position on Billboard’s 2022 Year-End Hot Latin Song Producers chart and No. 5 on the all-genre Year-End Hot 100 Producers chart. His tracks on the album have amassed an astounding 6.7 billion streams on Spotify alone.
Ruling the airwaves in 2022, Un Verano Sin Ti became the first all-Spanish album to top the year-end Billboard 200 chart as well as earn a nomination for Album of the Year and win Best Música Urbana Album at the 2023 GRAMMY Awards.
MAG said: “Guy, Ryan, Katy and the whole Warner Chappell team have been incredibly supportive over the past few years and I’m excited to continue building on our partnership.”
Ryan Press, President, North America, Warner Chappell Music said: “Over the past few years, MAG has helped push our culture forward with a genre-bending sound that will define our generation. He has a gift for creating hits that go beyond language and brings people together, and all of us at Warner Chappell look forward to working with him as he takes the next step in his career.”
Brooklyn-born, Puerto Rican-Dominican producer Marco “MAG” Borrero was initially discovered and mentored by renowned singer/songwriter Max Martin. In 2020, he executive produced Bad Bunny’s GRAMMY Award-winning album, El Último Tour del Mundo, which made history as the first all-Spanish language album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart – the first time in its then 64-year existence. Shortly after, MAG debuted at the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart and Latin Producers chart, and No. 2 on the Latin Songwriters chart. In 2022, he joined forces with Bad Bunny on the massively successful and critically-acclaimed album Un Verano Sin Ti. Throughout his career, MAG has also collaborated with hitmakers such as WCM’s Rauw Alejandro as well as Eladio Carrion, Arcángel, Bebe Rexha, Imagine Dragons, Selena Gomez, and Demi Lovato.
