Cuppy ascribed the development as a signal to a new chapter in her music career and the industry, saying it’s a dream come true.

“A new chapter with sweet music. Cuppy is now a @WeArePlatoon artist!” she wrote on Instagram.

Platoon Music, acquired by Apple in 2018, works with artistes to produce, distribute and sell their work, using analytics to figure out the target market for the content

It is to be recalled that Cuppy announced the name of her debut EP on social media after aggregating opinions of her fans on social media.
