New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ BMG) Wayne Hector, one of the world's most successful pop writers, has signed an exclusive worldwide publishing deal with BMG Chrysalis UK.

Hector has written over 30 Number One hits and in the past year alone for the likes of One Direction ('Best Song Ever'), James Blunt (five tracks on his current album), John Newman, James Arthur and Shane Filan.

The deal reunites Hector with some of his earlier songs, acquired last year by BMG as part of the Virgin Music/Famous Music catalogues, including 'Beat Again' and 'Everybody In Love' (JLS), 'All Time Low' and 'Heart Vacancy' (The Wanted), 'Thinking Of Me' (Olly Murs), 'Out From Under' (Britney Spears) and 'Need You' (Travie McCoy).

His career highlights also include international smash hits for likes of Nicki Minaj ('Starships'), The Wanted ('Glad You Came'), Susan Boyle ('Proud'), Jason Derulo, Rascal Flatts, Mika and Carrie Underwood, as well as his career-defining work with Westlife which produced 'Flying Without Wings', written with his regular writing partner - and now fellow BMG writer - Steve Mac.

BMG Chrysalis UK EVP Alexi Cory-Smith said, "Wayne Hector stands in the very first rank of pop writers in the world today, and we are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with him."

Wayne Hector's manager Jackie Davidson said, "We are enthusiastic and looking forward to integrating with the BMG family, both here in the UK and abroad and am sure it will help enhance and build upon what has been achieved to date."

BMG Chrysalis UK Senior Creative Director Kate Sweetsur said, "Wayne's track record speaks for itself, and we are very excited about working with him across BMG's international network and particularly in the US."

Wayne Hector has most recently been working with Kylie, Rixton, The Fray and Tiesto.
