Sony Music Publishing Latin today announced its global partnership with one of today’s most prominent entertainment and media companies NEON16 and veteran music executive Tommy Mottola to support its newly launched publishing company, 22 Publishing and its growing roster of hitmaking songwriters, artists, and producers.

Several of the company’s songwriters also contributed to hit songs for The Spongebob Movie: Sponge On The Run movie soundtrack including “Agua” by Tainy and J Balvin, which has amassed over 333 million Spotify streams.

Its roster includes Albert Hype (“Telepatia” by Kali Uchis, Shakira’s “Te Felicito”), Jota Rosa (Bad Bunny’s Un Verano Sin Ti, “Baila Conmigo” by Selena Gomez), Gaby Morales (Dalex’s “Hola” andYandel’s “Deja Vu”), Ivanni Rodriguez (J Balvin’s “Un Dia” and”Agua” with Tainy), as well as emerging talent such as Rozo, Jodosky and Dylan Fuentes.
