If you wrote or co-wrote a percentage of a musical work that’s been recorded, performed or published, you should join SOCAN to receive the money that you’ve earned. If your songs are played by almost any business, almost anywhere in the world – whether live, on radio, online, on TV, in movies, etc. – SOCAN collects the money that’s owed for your share of those performances. When it comes to getting paid for performances of songs to which you’ve contributed, it’s our business to take care of you. We’ve got your back.
From 2014 to 2016, Nineteen85 (a.k.a. Paul Jefferies) was one of the most successful producers on the planet. In those two years, he earned four SOCAN Awards for his co-writes with Drake, which he also co-produced. The SOCAN member helped create many of Drake’s phenomenal global smash hits, including “Hotline Bling,” “One Dance,” “Hold On, We're Going Home,” “Too Good” (by Drake, featuring Rihanna), and “Truffle Butter” (by Nicki Minaj, featuring Drake and Lil Wayne). He also founded the R&B duo DVSN with singer Daniel Daley. Nineteen85 has been nominated for three Grammys, and co-wrote/co-produced “Get it Together” and “Madiba Riddim” for Drake's 2017 playlist More Life.
