Cinq Music Acquires Music Catalog of Hitmaker Flow La Movie

Cinq Music has acquired the music catalog of hitmaker Flow La Movie, Billboard can announce. The late producer’s robust catalog includes reggaetón megahits “Te Boté” and “La Jeepeta” — the former topped Billboard‘s Hot Latin Songs for 14 weeks in 2018. The catalog acquisition comes nearly three years since Flow La Movie (born José Angel Hernández) died in a plane crash at age 38, and at the peak of his career.

In 2016, Flow launched his record label where he developed then up-and-coming artists Nio García and Casper Mágico. Both singers participated in the catalog sale, which was made possible through Flow La Movie’s estate, now administered by his daughter, Keigelyan Hernández with collaboration from GLAD Empire (the indie label’s distributor), according to Cinq Music. The deal also comes after a complex legal battle — surrounding contracts and music tied to Flow La Movie — ended in 2022 when a global settlement agreement legally named Hernández as the sole representative of her father’s estate. 

About the catalog acquisition, Cinq Music’s president and co-founder Barry Daffurn, says, “Reggaetón has been a core element of our DNA since the founding of this company. I remember the day that ‘Te Boté’ was released and watching the remix catapult into a global phenomenon. We all mourned the loss of José, and we are honored to continue his legacy with the addition of his catalog to our storied portfolio.”

He adds, “Cinq is committed to honoring his life’s work and to preserving his remarkable legacy. We have tremendous respect and admiration for him and his family, and we are looking forward to continuing to build upon the special place that he occupies in the hearts of music fans everywhere.”
