Super-producer Zaytoven announced today that he signed with one of pop music's most legendary labels, Motown Records.
The Atlanta beatmaker issued a statement on Friday laying out the details. Zay's new music—which is coming "soon," the statement says—will be released by the legendary label in partnership with Zaytoven's own Familiar Territory Records.
"We’re excited to partner with such an innovative artist and look forward to helping Zaytoven and Familiar Territory’s vision come to fruition," said Motown Records President Ethiopia Habtemariam.
Steve Barnett, Chairman and CEO of Motown's parent company Capital Music Group, was ecstatic as well.
"Zaytoven’s prowess as a producer, songwriter and musician continues to have such influence and impact on music and popular culture, and his signing to Motown through his Familiar Territory Records will enable us all to experience his significant talents as a recording artist," Barnett said. "I couldn’t be happier that Zaytoven is now a member of the CMG family."
Zaytoven, who has been a driving force behind the success of acts like Migos, Future, and Gucci Mane, is readying an album tentatively titled Trap Holizay. He talked to Rap-Up about it back in April, and mentioned that features would include Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Migos, Future, Jeremih, and Gucci Mane.
