Universal Music Publishing Group signs Nija to global publishing deal
Universal Music Publishing Group today announced the signing of multiplatinum-selling songwriter-record producer Nija Charles to an exclusive publishing deal.
Nija has quickly become one of the most in-demand and prolific writers in the industry. Since signing to UMPG, Nija has written songs recorded by a wide variety of superstars including Beyonce and Jay-Z (“Heard About Us” and “LoveHappy”); Cardi B ft. SZA ("I Do); Cardi B ft. Kehlani ("Ring"); Jason Derulo for the 2018 Official World Cup and Coca-Cola anthem ("Colors”); and Chris Brown ("Pull Up").
“I’m just a fan turned songwriter. Songwriting, for me, is just making songs for my favorite artists that I’d wanna listen to on repeat with my friends,” said Nija.
Prior to signing with UMPG, Nija studied at the renowned Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU. Born in Union, New Jersey, she is currently based in Los Angeles.
