Jon Platt's Sony/ATV, which earned Publisher of the Year at BMI and ASCAP Pop, BMI R&B/Hip-Hop and the triple crown of Latin Music Publisher at ASCAP, BMI And SESAC, enjoyed gangbusters songwriter revenue from culture-shifting unicorn Lil Nas X as well as superstars Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Khalid, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert, among others, in addition to inking Mustard, King Princess, Sam Hollander (Panic! At the Disco, Weezer, One Direction), Def Leppard’s catalog and more and re-upping Boi-1da (Drake, Rhianna), Camila Cabello and busy writer/producer Ricky Reed (Lizzo, Halsey, Maggie Rogers). Platt also reunited with superstar Rihanna late in the year.


Platt was also busily fine-tuning his team, assisted by prexy Danny Strick, among other key insiders; he upped President/CEO Latin America and U.S. Latin Jorge Mejia and brought in new Nashville head Rusty Gaston (Josh Van Valkenburg is overseeing the Music City A&R team). SVP A&R and West Coast luminary Jen Knoepfle, who inked King Princess, also worked closely with Jack Antonoff and Joel Little on Swift’s monster album Lover. The House of Platt was also rather chuffed about the licensing boomlet occasioned by Danny Boyle’s cinematic Beatles fantasy, Yesterday, which racked up $150m at the box office.
