Kobalt Music Signs Grammy-Winning Latin Pop Duo Jesse & Joy to Publishing Deal
Kobalt announced that it has signed Mexican-American singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Jesse & Joy. The worldwide agreement includes publishing administration for the sibling duo’s new single “Te Esperé” and future works.
Said Kobalt Music President, Latin America, Nestor Casonu of the deal, “We are thrilled to welcome singer/songwriter duo Jesse & Joy to the Kobalt family. From the very beginning, the siblings have reached millions of hearts with their beautiful songs, not only as spectacular performers, but also as outstanding lyricists and composers. We look forward to supporting their continued trajectory as one of Latin music’s most celebrated and treasured duos.”
“Jesse & Joy transcend all boundaries when it comes to making music, crafting timeless songs that always hit emotional chords - both in English and Spanish,” Kobalt Music VP Creative, Latin America, Leslie Ahrens said. “We’re very honored to have them join the Kobalt family and equally as excited to work jointly with them in collaborating with other artists and writers of their distinct caliber.”
The Mexican American duo, born and raised in Mexico City, won the 2017 GRAMMY for Best Latin Pop Album, Un Besito Más, adding to their six career Latin Grammys. Their previous single, “3 A.M” with Gente De Zona, garnered record streams for the artists worldwide, ranking high among their hits “Corre!,” “Dueles,” “Ecos de amor” and “Me Soltaste.” Alongside millions of followers on social media and billions of views from around the world, Jesse & Joy also use their global platform to raise their voices on behalf of those who cannot, while representing the bicultural bilingual millennials of today.
Jesse & Joy are putting the final touches on their new music; they continue to push their musical boundaries while remaining true to their core sound. Expect the new single “Te Esperé” on November 23. Jesse & Joy will be back stronger than ever, returning with a world tour in 2019.
Commenting on the deal, Jesse & Joy noted, “As singer-songwriters, there is nothing more sacred than our music. Each lyric, melody, and bar of music runs through our veins like the blood that binds us as brother and sister. We’re very excited to find a new home for our creations and to join the Kobalt family.”
