Anthem Entertainment expands its ownership of Timbaland’s catalog while investing in Beatclub.
Independent music publisher Anthem Entertainment has announced the expansion of its long-standing partnership with legendary producer and songwriter Timbaland and an investment in Beatclub, the global music platform for artists, producers, and songwriters.
This expansion sees Anthem acquiring additional publishing interests in Timbaland’s catalog, including some of his biggest hits with Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, and many more, while extending his exclusive songwriting arrangement and bolstering the Anthem/Blue Stone publishing collaboration to co-sign songwriters.
Anthem’s investment in Beatclub, a platform founded by Timbaland with a mission to change the way music is created in the digital-first economy, further reinforces the company’s commitment to Timbaland’s creative vision.
“I couldn’t be more excited to build on our relationship with Timbaland and his team. Timbaland’s innovative production and songwriting has changed music over the past three decades and continues to do so,” says Jason Klein, CEO of Anthem Entertainment.
“Beatclub is already having a similar impact on the creative community. We are proud to continue our long run and alliance as Timbaland’s music publishing home while building on our Blue Stone co-publishing venture and being part of the exciting Beatclub story.”
“I have been partners with Anthem for over ten years, and I am happy to extend our creative relationship. Jason and his team understand my vision with Blue Stone and Beatclub,” adds Timbaland.
Beatclub, co-founded by Timbaland and Gary Marella, is the premier global music platform for artists, producers, and songwriters, creating an “all-digital” global marketplace that connects the creative community with record labels, music publishers, licensing companies, and independent artists. Anthem has invested in Beatclub’s series A-2 funding round.
“We are thrilled to have Anthem as a partner in Beatclub and to extend their relationship with Timbaland,” concludes Gary Marella, CEO and co-founder of Beatclub. “Beatclub’s alignment with Anthem will allow our members to access their incredible catalog of songs for sampling in new songs and for potential use in our TV and Film endeavors.”
Launched in 2022, Beatclub facilitates monetization for music creators by connecting them with buyers via its two-sided marketplace and one-click sync opportunities portal. The platform strives to provide creators with access to up-and-coming producers and the biggest names in the industry.
