Sony Music Publishing today announced it has signed a global deal with singer, songwriter and Emmy-Award winning actress Dove Cameron. 

As the 2022 recipient of MTV’s VMA for Best New Artist, Dove Cameron continues to build momentum for what has already been an exciting year. This notable award comes fresh off the heels of her impactful and uncompromising music video release for her new single “Breakfast.”

“Breakfast” is the follow up to Dove’s RIAA gold-certified, noir-pop turned massively beloved queer anthem “Boyfriend.” Since the release of “Boyfriend,” the song has achieved over 349 million streams worldwide and peaked at #2 on Top 40 radio, #10 on Spotify’s US chart, as well as the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and #9 on the UK Official chart. With recent performances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, the 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards and iHeart’s Can’t Cancel Pride, Dove has firmly established herself as an unstoppable force in the music world.  

Dove Cameron said, “I’m so excited to be joining the Sony Music Publishing family where they continue to grow and support me as an artist and a songwriter. With this partnership, I look forward to bringing my fans music that can become the soundtrack to their lives.”

Sony Music Publishing VP, Creative Thomas Krottinger said, “Dove is a brilliant songwriter – her creative authenticity has not only led to chart success, but it has enabled her to become an important voice representing the LGBTQ+ community. We’re thrilled to welcome Dove to SMP, and we look forward to supporting her in this next chapter.”

Dove Cameron began writing songs at the age of fifteen while also pursuing her career in acting. Her love for music is reflected in her film and TV performances including the Apple TV+ musical-comedy series Schmigadoon!. She also recently starred in the B.J. Novak-directed VENGEANCE with Issa Rae and Ashton Kutcher, and the Colson Baker (AKA Machine Gun Kelly) directed feature film Good Mourning alongside Pete Davidson, Megan Fox, Becky G, Mod Sun, and Whitney Cummings.
