Universal Music Group (UMG) announced on April 23 that it signed "an exclusive international recording agreement with Kris Wu, one of Asia’s biggest stars and an artist whose creative success spans music, film and television."

According to the UMG press release , Kris Wu said,“It‘s my pleasure to be part of this collaboration with Universal Music Group. I’m enjoying the time to share creative and vision of my music. As a singer-songwriter and producer, the album I’m working on now is elaborately produced and rounded by me and I will keep working to deliver more beautiful works to all my audiences around the world.”

Kris Wu brings the cachet of an incredibly talented Chinese singer-songwriter, rapper, model, and actor to the international stage. The 27-year-old star enjoys a fan base that began when he was a member of the popular K-pop group EXO. Also known as Wu Yifan, he currently has over 30 million followers to his Weibo and almost 6 million followers to his Instagram.
