Jerry Wonda - Founder

One of the most successful producers to emerge from the hiphop era since the 1990s, Jerry Wonda has an illustrious career that spans over 19 years. He is renowned for his producing, songwriting, performing, and composing. From his humble beginnings producing with Wyclef Jean in his now-famous home studio Booga Basement, Wonda achieved massive success with the release of The Fugee’s multiple Grammy Award-winning album The Score, which became one of the greatest hiphop albums of all time. His career highlights include producing musical icon Carlos Santana’s single ‘Maria Maria’, which broke world records by holding the No. 1 position for 10 consecutive weeks. In 2006, he co-produced Shakira’s ‘Hips Don’t Lie’, which went on to become the top selling song of the 21st century, reaching No. 1 in over 50 countries. In 2009, Wonda began producing music under his own Wondamusic label, where he placed his first major record with ‘U Smile’ by Justin Bieber. Since then, he’s produced top hits for Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Lupe Fiasco, Mary J. Blige, Shakira, Santana, and many more.
