Brockhampton’s New Record Deal Is Worth USD $15 Million
Brockhampton have signed a USD $15 million contract with RCA, but have promised that nothing will change.
Our favourite, self proclaimed boy band, Brockhampton has just signed a USD $15 million recording contract with RCA, locking them in for six albums over the course of three years.
The Brockhampton lads will be joining the likes of A$AP Rocky, Childish Gambino and Khalid under the RCA banner. While it is yet to be confirmed whether the deal will include any solo projects, the deal covers every member of the group, which can fluctuate between six and 15 artists at any one time.
But if you, like some of us, were worried about them giving into the machine, ring leader, Kevin Abstract has settled any concerns saying; “nothin changes..Videos still diy, music still made in our house, and we’re still gonna make the best possible product for y’all. They understood that we wanted to be the biggest boyband in the world and I’m a firm believer in not being able to do everything on your own”.
One of those albums is likely to be the recently announced ‘Puppy’, which is set to be released in the American summer. Puppy will be Brockhampton’s fourth album, following their ‘Saturation’ trilogy. Puppy has also replaced their now unreleased album ‘Team Effort’ which was set to be released this year, but after some divine intervention (God told them not to), it has been put on hold.
The RCA agreement has been likened to Odd Future’s record deal, noting that streaming and consumption numbers aren’t massive, but when Odd Future signed that deal it was significantly less lucrative, falling close to USD $2 million.
The Brockhampton boys are going to be very busy this year. They wrapped up their ‘Love Your Parents Tour’ on March 7 and are soon hitting the road again for Coachella, as part of their North American tour, which will run solidly through to July.
But it doesn’t stop there, Europe is beckoning and Brockhampton will be embarking on a 13 date tour which will take them across Sweden, Finland and Germany before wrapping up in the UK, at Leeds Festival.
We’re already looking forward to the concert videos that will follow. Stay tuned.
