NEW YORK, June 26, 2017 – One of music’s most influential and inventive 21st century producers Metro Boomin unveiled his solo debut single “No Complaints”[feat. Offset & Drake] this past week. Get it HERE. It’s the first single to be released under his newly formed label Boominati Worldwide in partnership with Republic Records and Universal Music Group.

As part of this alliance, the St. Louis-born and Atlanta-based talent will release his own music as well as additional future Boominati Worldwide signings.

“Launching Boominati Worldwide is the next step in my career as a producer, an artist, and a businessman.” Says Metro “I created the label to represent a collective of highly gifted individuals who have the shared gift of being able to influence the world through culture and art.”

Republic Records Co-Founder and C.E.O. Monte Lipman adds, “Metro Boomin is a franchise player who’s captured the imagination of the music community in a very short period of time.  His amazing talent, competitive spirit, and natural charisma will serve as the cornerstone of success for Boominati Worldwide.”

Next up, Metro hits the road supporting Bryson Tiller on the “Set It Off” Tour this August. Check out the full routing below.

Metro Boomin continually delivers hits that push boundaries and define the modern sound. By the age of 23, he had already architected an unbreakable string of smashes for the likes of Drake, Kanye West, The Weeknd, Future, Nicki Minaj, Travi$ Scott, and many more. 2017 has been an explosive year for Metro, having produced 5 Top 10 records on the Hot 100 Chart this year alone including Post Malone’s triple-platinum smash “Congratulations” [feat. Quavo], Migos’s platinum “Bad and Boujee” [feat. Lil Uzi Vert], Future’s platinum “Mask Off,” Kodak Black’s platinum “Tunnel Vision” and Big Sean’s platinum “Bounce Back.”

In 2016 he not only scored the BET Hip Hop Award for “Best Producer of the Year” and watched his cumulative streams reach billions worldwide. He also joined forces with 21 Savage for the joint project Savage Mode—which racked up over 250 million streams and yielded two platinum selling, Billboard Hot 100 hits in less than six months’ time. Adding to his countless credits, he served as executive producer for Drake & Future’s platinum-certified 2015 collaboration What A Time To Be Alive in addition to producing the triple-platinum “Jumpman.” Covering The Fader, the publication described Metro as “arguably the most in-demand producer in hip-hop,” while Billboard dubbed him, “One of the brightest rising stars in hip-hop today.” He’s been prominently featured by Noisey, Forbes, Washington Post, Complex, and more.
