HR Music launches REIGN, a new Hip-Hop/R&B imprint
Higher Reign Music Group is proud to announce the launch of its new division REIGN. With acts hailing from Montreal and Toronto only, the goal is to focus on developing talents from these two burgeoning cities in Canada. From Rap, Hip-Hop, R&B and Afrobeat, REIGN will bring new blood to the scene with their distribution partner Sony Music Entertainment Canada/The Orchard.
“The artists coming from these two metropolitan cities is quite amazing lately. We all know there are some big names coming out of Canada already but we wanted to build a strong movement and develop and nurture them a bit like Quality Control Music has done in the U.S. the past couple of years.” says Higher Reign Music President Steeven Leblanc.
REIGN plans to promote showcases within the two cities and release compilations for 2020. New music from Ray Reaves, Aftrprty and Ricci North will be released at the end of the month and into the new year.
