This landmark agreement secures global marketing and distribution rights for Jay Chou's extensive music catalogue and future projects, while also supporting rising talent from his label, including artists like Patrick Brasca and Young (Cao Yang) through JVR. The addition of IFPI's 2022 Global Album Sales Chart leader, Jay Chou, to UMG's artist roster, underscores the company's commitment to elevating Mandopop music on the international stage.

This partnership is more than a milestone for us; it's a celebration of Jay's extraordinary artistry and global appeal. We are deeply honored to be entrusted with his musical legacy and are eager to help showcase his remarkable talent to a broader global audience."

Jay Chou, hailed as the "King of Mandopop", has been a phenomenal figure in the Mandarin music scene since his groundbreaking debut in 2000 with "JAY." His illustrious career spans 15 studio albums, each contributing to his enduring legacy. Chou's 2022 release, "Greatest Works of Art," marked a historic moment, making him not only the first Mandarin artist to break into the top 10 of the IFPI Global Artist Chart, but also the first to top the Global Album Sales Chart.

Founded in 2007 by Jay Chou, Vincent Fang, and JR Yang, JVR Music is a highly respected and successful label and artist management agency. JR Yang, Chief Executive Officer of JVR Music, remarked, "Aligning with UMG in this strategic partnership, marks a new chapter for Jay and JVR towards our vision of elevating Mandarin pop music globally. Leveraging UMG's extensive global network enables us to amplify Jay's artistic impact and the diversity of our artist roster on a global scale.

This partnership further cements our commitment to nurturing diverse talents and introducing them to audiences worldwide. Jay's exceptional artistry and JVR's creative prowess align perfectly with our mission to enrich the global music landscape."

In addition to his work as a performing artist, Chou is very highly regarded as a songwriter. He has composed and produced all his songs, many in collaboration with esteemed lyricist Vincent Fang. Since 2013, Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG), the leading global publishing division of Universal Music Group, has been the global publisher for Jay Chou and JVR, managing their entire song catalog.
