Rapper, Stormzy recently announced a deal between his #MERKY record label and Atlantic Records. The move is a major one for the former indie record label that Stormzy had announced only a year ago. According to Music Week, Ben Cook, the president of Atlantic Records UK said: “We’ve been friends with Stormzy and Tobe for a while now, it’s been exciting to see the extraordinary impact Stormzy’s music has had and the iconic figure he has become. #Merky are now key players, and we’re thrilled to join forces. Together we’re going to take Stormzy global, and fill the #Merky roster with fresh new talent.” With both parties seemingly excited about the partnership, it’ll be interesting to see what direction #MERKY will take in the future.
