Empire Records, The Label

    EMPIRE, a prominent record label in Nigeria and Africa, has maintained its prestigious position as the top label for two consecutive years. The label's remarkable success is exemplified by the groundbreaking achievement of Fireboy DML's hit single "Peru," a collaboration with Ed Sheeran that soared to the #2 spot on the 2022 Top 40 UK charts. Notably, the track recently received an RIAA Gold certification. Over the past couple of years, EMPIRE has also played a pivotal role in propelling the career of Asake, who has garnered an impressive 1.75 billion streams. EMPIRE's commitment to nurturing talent is further demonstrated by its annual writing camps held at the San Francisco studio, resulting in Asake's recent "Work of Art" album and the 2022 release of "Where We Come From (Vol. 1)," a compilation album that birthed Kizz Daniel's hit track, "Cough."

    Empire was founded in 2010 by Bay Area native Ghazi, EMPIRE has emerged as a pioneering force in the music industry through its forward-thinking approach to the digital music landscape. The San Francisco-based company excels in early-stage artist development and has played a pivotal role in launching the careers of multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Yung Bleu, Fireboy DML, and Anderson .Paak.

    The Empire's Advantage

    EMPIRE's distinct advantage lies in its ability to create bespoke deals that prioritize the artist's interests, fostering genuine partnerships with every artist and label under its umbrella. Complementing this is EMPIRE's cutting-edge software for analytics, recoupment, and royalties, which is accessible to all its partners. This level of transparency sets a new standard in the music industry.
