The singer-songwriter and actor will release his forthcoming debut album later this year—with new music coming this summer.

“Anthony is a true game-changer,” Republic EVP of A&R Wendy Goldstein told Variety. “His music not only brings genres together, but it unites people. This power immediately inspired Monte and I to sign him. There’s nobody quite like Anthony, and that’s a wonderful thing.”

Ramos added, “This is such a big moment. I think it’s amazing that we have the opportunity to make music. Music hits people in a way that talking to somebody doesn’t. I think we should never take that for granted. I’m just grateful that I’m with a company who supports that.”

Ramos, who can be seen in the Spike Lee series She's Gotta Have It, is currently in production as the lead in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights movie, directed by Jon M. Chu and scheduled for a May 2020 release. He was recently seen in the Oscar-winning A Star Is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper.
