CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration will claim and collect: All mechanical royalties from streaming services, international mechanical royalties from download stores, performance royalties, and global YouTube publishing royalties. Also, CD Baby will register songs with royalty collection societies around the world.
(PRUnderground) September 26th, 2019
André Akinyele joined CD Baby Pro Publishing, a move that will help him collect all the royalties he is owed worldwide. Although he is affiliated as a songwriter with ASCAP with over 300 songs written, CD Baby Pro Publishing will act only as his publishing administrator for his Funkdivity Music publishing catalog. On his behalf, CD Baby Pro Publishing Administration will claim and collect: All mechanical royalties from streaming services, international mechanical royalties from download stores, performance royalties, and global YouTube publishing royalties. Also, CD Baby Pro Publishing will register his songs with royalty collection societies around the world.
The move comes as no surprise, as André Akinyele has used CD Baby as his music distributor since 1998 through his many rebirths as an artist, releasing five R&B/funk albums as Marcel, two jazz/funk albums as Ajamu Akinyele, six albums with his jazz/funk fusion band Gemini Soul, two side projects—one with his rock band Looking for Lester and the other with his pop/electronic group Lavender Lush—and six albums as André Akinyele, including his most recent album “Telegram Mews” (2018).

Currently André is securing his over 20-year legacy as a recording artist in the music industry. Aside from writing books and developing games, he has been working on two new albums for the past year, one pop/hip-hop/R&B and the other an EDM album. Also, he is rebranding and expanding his label to begin signing new artists. Signing this deal with CD Baby Pro Publishing could signal the release of several new albums.
Industry personnel can now license André Akinyele’s music for ads, brands, games, films, and TV shows. And, fans can now follow and stream his music on music platforms, including Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/6CJLPsqGKpIa3QDRyEh5eH.
