Reservoir has signed multi-Platinum rapper Young M.A to a worldwide publishing deal.
The deal includes global rights to her entire catalog of works including her triple-Platinum single OOOUUU and recently released 21-track debut LP, Herstory In The Making.
Born Katorah Marrero, Young M.A’s 2016 viral single OOOUUU has been certified triple-Platinum. It also reached Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and has racked up over half a billion streams.
50 Cent featured on an official remix of the song, while unofficial remixes were released by the likes of Nicki Minaj, French Montana, ASAP Ferg, Jadakiss, Remy Ma, Meek Mill, Beanie Sigel, The Game, and others.
OOOUUU also caught the attention of Eminem, who included a sample of the song on The Ringer, the lead track off his US No.1 album Kamikaze.
Young M.A has spent the last few years since OOOUUU releasing a steady stream of singles including PettyWap, BIG, Car Confessions, and Stubborn Ass, each amassing double-digit millions of streams prior to appearing on Herstory In The Making.
Meanwhile, her unofficial remix of Blueface’s Thotiana has garnered over 30 million YouTube views in a matter of weeks.
