Under this agreement, MTV will work with Orlando to develop multiplatform initiatives that span across consumer products, music and live events. MTV is currently working on a comprehensive strategy for the artist, which includes musical performances on-air, across digital platforms and appearances in MTV programming and tentpole events.

Their recognition and support represents a huge vote of confidence in me as an artist. Getting the opportunity to work with the amazing team behind the brand has exceeded my wildest dreams. I’m grateful to know that they believe in my talents and I’m looking forward to creating some cool stuff for all of you.”

Plans are also underway for an exclusive line of cross-category consumer products with merchandise that will range from fashion and accessories, to publishing, social expressions, home decor, and much more.
