B.I signs with US label Wasserman Music, fans say ‘Hanbin looks hot doing hot things’
Not only is he the CEO of his own agency but B.I (Kim Hanbin) has turned himself into an international icon. After leaving YG Entertainment and his former boy group iKON after a scandal including drug use, many thought that it was over for the singer. Despite this, B.I turned his career around when he made his comeback as a solo artist under his own label 131 Entertainment while also becoming the executive director of IOK Company. With being the CEO of not one but two labels as a solo artist, only the sky is the limit for B.I.
On February 17, B.I announced that he had signed with the American label Wasserman Music which marks his next big move to make it big in the global market. In the official announcement from the label, it was reported that B.I had recently signed a contract with Wasserman, a large American agency that is in charge of numerous global artists such as Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Ed Sheeran, and Skrillex.

With this signing, B.I has become labelmates with many popular international artists. It is also reported that Billie Eilish and B.I will share the same agent as labelmates at Wasserman Music. Eilish's agent Billy Tom Windish who has a strong influence in American entertainment will help manage B.I’s international activities. Ahead of his official contract with Wasserman, B.I signed a management partnership in America with the American entertainment label Transparent Arts.
Both Wasserman Music and Transparent Arts work in tandem which means this signing has opened a lot more opportunities for B.I, making sure his global presence will be felt sooner than anticipated. As soon as it was officially announced that B.I had signed with Wasserman Music, the label added B.I as an artist to their website sealed the deal for the singer.
Last month, B.I started showing off his international presence by performing at the ‘Grammy’s Global Spin’ becoming the first Asian and K-pop artist to perform at the US Grammy performance series. Not only that, back in October 2021, B.I performed his first concert titled ‘131 Live Presents: B.I First Online Concert’ which featured the American singer Pink Sweat$, proving B.I’s global spectrum.
