Previous Warner Chappell-signed artist Rihanna is the first star to follow Jon Platt to Sony/ATV Music Publishing. Back in April, Platt left a three-year executive run with Warner Chappell to become Sony/ATV CEO. Perhaps in an act of loyalty, Rihanna has officially signed a deal with Sony/ATV that encompasses her entire music catalog, including all of her Hot 100 top 10s, such as “Love on the Brain” and even her number 1s like “Rude Boy” and “Work.”

“I’m proud to have known Rihanna since the beginning of her career,” said Platt in a recent announcement. “Music, fashion, philanthropy and a heart of gold have solidified Rihanna’s position as one of the biggest icons in the world. It is an honor to be reunited with her at Sony/ATV.”

According to Billboard, the Barbadian singer is currently the world’s richest female musician and boasts nine Grammys, 12 Billboard Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards and seven MTV Video Music Awards. Rihanna hasn’t released any new music since she featured on N.E.R.D.‘s “Lemon” last year, so this announcement may mark a new project on the way for the superstar.
