Brockhampton announced a deal with RCA Records last week, and now, specifics have been revealed.
According to Billboard, the hip-hop band’s deal is for six albums over three years and is worth more than $15 million.
Furthermore, tha deal is strictly for the music. It does not include Brockhampton’s touring or merchandise.
Billboard’s report notes that the signing points to major label’s spending aggressiveness in the streaming era, following deals with Juice WRLD ($3 million from Interscope), Lil Pump ($8 million from Warner Bros.) and 03 Greedo ($1.7 million from Alamo/Interscope).
Despite the huge deal, frontman Kevin Abstract said the band still has the same plan. “Nothing changes we still in this living room making songs making out and all of that rca just gon help us push this gay agenda,” he tweeted.
