Tina Turner has sold her music rights to BMG for an undisclosed sum. The new deal “includes all of Turner’s artist’s share of her recordings and her music publishing writer’s share, as well as neighboring rights and name, image and likeness.” Warner Music will remain Turner’s record company.

Turner, who’s now 81, said in a statement, “Like any artist, the protection of my life’s work, my musical inheritance, is something personal. (I am) confident (my work) is in professional and reliable hands.”
