Tina Turner, one of the most recognisable stars in pop music has sold the rights to her music, which includes Turner’s hit songs “The Best” and “Nutbush City Limits”.
Music publishing company BMG has acquired Turner’s music catalogue along with the rights to Turner’s name, image and likeness for future sponsorship and merchandising deals. Turner will give BMG her rights to dozens of hit songs which have spanned over a 60 year career. This deal does not affect the distribution of Turner’s music which will still remain with Warner Music the recording company. Hartwig Masuch of BMG has said “we are honoured to take on the job of managing Tina Turner's musical and commercial interests. It is a responsibility we take seriously and will pursue diligently. She (Turner) is truly and simply, the best."
It is alleged BMG has purchased the rights for £37 million.
