WARNER CHAPPELL INKS VINYLZ
5/13/21

Hit producer Vinylz, who's worked with stars like Drake, J. Cole, Cardi B, Jay-Z and Travis Scott, has signed a global publishing agreement with Warner Chappell Music

Most recently, Vinylz co-produced two songs on Justin Bieber’s surprise EP Freedom (“Freedom” ft. Beam and “All She Wrote” ft. Brandon Love and Chandler Moore), in addition to working on pop singer/songwriter Starrah’s debut album, The Longest Interlude.

WCM SVP of A&R, Rich Christina, said: “I couldn’t be happier to be reunited with Vinylz. We’ve had a great, longstanding successful relationship spanning many years. His production is truly special and standout. He expertly blends old and new styles, marrying ‘90s rap beats with contemporary R&B. We’re really looking forward to working with him across all genres in this next chapter at Warner Chappell.”

WCM President of A&R, U.S., Ryan Press, added: “Vinylz has become one of the most in-demand producers to come out of the New York rap scene. His beats are everywhere and have helped to define the sound of many of today’s biggest stars. I’m so impressed with his work ethic and couldn’t be prouder to welcome him to Warner Chappell.”

Inspired by his love of sampling and his father's record collection, New York-bred Anderson Hernandez chose Vinylz as his producer name. Early in his career, Vinylz joined Quad Studios and started working with breakout acts like Drag-On and Cassidy, where he met his mentor Boi-1da and eventually went on to produce for Drake and the OVO crew. 

In 2013, Vinylz co-produced Jay-Z’s “FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” ft. Rick Ross, along with DJ Khaled’s RIAA-certified gold hit “No New Friends” ft. Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne

Throughout his career, Vinylz has been part of a number of Grammy-Award nominated albums, including Beyoncé & Jay-Z's Everything is Love, Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy, J. Cole's Forest Hills Drive, Rihanna's Anti and Justin Bieber's Changes. He also produced Chris Brown & Drake's 2019 multi-platinum smash, "No Guidance."
