Anitta is no longer tied to Warner Music Group (WMG).

Having self-managed her own career over the course of many years in Brazil, Anitta had long-standing ties to Warner Records when it came to her international career. Unfortunately, the bisexual singer felt “disrespected” time and time again by the music label, going as far as venting out on social media about the poor treatment she had allegedly received.

According to a new report, Anitta has now reached an agreement to part ways with Warner. “After 11 years of a successful partnership, we’ve agreed to go our separate ways,” Anitta and Warner wrote in a joint statement. “Anitta would like to thank the Warner Music team for all their support. And the Warner team wishes Anitta all the best in future.”

The Brazilian popstar shared this joint statement on social media as well.

Just a month ago, Anitta celebrated International Women’s Day by calling out the practices and miscommunication styles within Warner Records.

The singer shared a series of Instagram stories that read, “Communication at Warner is so good that [they’re] posting me on a HAPPY women’s day looping post, even though I had to go public to ask for the ‘woman respect’ that this date represents… using [as] background the song they said would never break without a feat because I wasn’t strong enough for that.” For context, the latter was in reference to “Envolver,” a song that reached the no. 1 global charts on Spotify despite Anitta’s allegations that Warner didn’t think the song would be successful without her having a featured artist in it.

Anitta’s Instagram stories on March 8 also urged Warner to “respect” her and called out the record label’s CEO for not answering emails personally sent by the singer. When fans asked Anitta if there was an amount of money she could pay to get out of her contract with Warner, she noted that this was simply not possible at that point.

Thankfully, some agreement has now been reached. Anitta and Warner are going their separate ways, and that’s probably good news for both the artist and the company.
