Artist Partner Group’s Partnership With Atlantic Records and ADA


Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP advised Artist Partner Group on the deal, along with Sedlmayr & Associates.

Artist Partner Group announced with Atlantic Records and ADA a new phase of their successful partnership originally formed in 2012. Artists signed under the original agreement will now be brought fully into the Atlantic fold. Artist Partner adds ADA, WMG’s independent artist and label services arm, as an additional channel partner for future signings.

Artist Partner introduced acclaimed and hugely popular artists such as Alec Benjamin, Ava Max, Bazzi, Charlie Puth, Don Toliver, Kehlani, Kevin Gates, Lil Skies, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, and others.

Artist Partner Group was founded as a sister music company to Artist Publishing Group, which will continue to publish artists signed to Atlantic Records such as Pink Sweat$ and Charlie Puth, as well as songwriters and producers not affiliated with Atlantic such as Madison Love, Taz Taylor, Hitmaka, 24k Goldn, Amy Allen, and Derrick Millano.

The Skadden team included Media and Entertainment partner David Eisman (Los Angeles; Picture).

Theo Sedlmayr of Sedlmayr & Associates also represented Artist Partner Group in the transaction.
