Ariana Grande Joins Demi Lovato Post Scooter Braun with Manager Brandon Creed While She and Max Martin Work on New Album


Remember– I told you when I went to see “Spamalot” a few weeks ago, famed songwriter Max Martin was there with Ariana Grande. Martin told me he and his team were working on songs for a new Grande album.

Now comes word that Ariana has taken a forward step and signed with manager Brandon Creed. That’s the same guy Demi Lovato signed with this summer.

Creed, a graduate of Irving and Jeffrey Azoff’s Full Stop Management, is the man of the moment, Both Lovato and Grande come to him after escaping Scooter Braun. Could Justin Bieber be the next Braun album to join his Good World Management?

Creed’s list also includes Charli XCX, Orville Peck, Troye Sivan, and producer Mark Ronson, among others. Ronson told me recently he’s still coming down from guiding the “Barbie” soundtrack to start a new project. But you could see him working with Ariana in a second. Next year will be a big one for Ariana, with two “Wicked” movies and a soundtrack looming.
