Edgar Cutino, manager for Grammy-nominated R&B singer Fridayy, has launched a new management company called To The World Soon. In addition to Fridayy, Cutino’s new company is working with artists Rome Flynn, Elliot Trent, BaeRose, June3rd, Fortune and Landon Moss.
Fridayy has been one of the breakout in-demand featured stars of the past year, making his chart debut in August 2022 as a featured guest on the DJ Khaled track “God Did” alongside JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and John Legend, which peaked at No. 17 on the Hot 100 and earned three Grammy nominations, for best rap song, best rap performance and a surprise Big Four nod for song of the year. In October 2022, he appeared on the Lil Baby song “Forever,” which reached No. 8 on the Hot 100. Fridayy has been working with Cutino for three years, after the two first connected over Instagram.
“[Cutino] introduced me to writing and a different way to get into the industry,” Fridayy said in a statement to Billboard. “We really built what we have from the ground up. We figured it out together and we both were hungry for success. I tell artists it’s never about the name; when two people come together who believe in each other and are hungry, there’s no telling what can happen.”
Getting his start as a party promoter, Cutino launched a collective of engineers, producers and photographers for local acts in the San Antonio area, helping establish artists in the local scene. In addition to Fridayy and his roster at TTWS, he’s worked on projects by Drake, Chris Brown, Lil Baby, Swedish House Mafia and more, according to a press release.
Fridayy himself got his start as a producer and songwriter, working on tracks by Rae Sremmurd, Chris Brown and Wiz Khalifa, and also co-produced “God Did.” He signed a deal with Def Jam, which released his self-titled debut this past August.
“Edgar is the rare kind of young executive with the taste level, hunger, drive and vision needed to become one of the greats,” Def Jam CEO Tunji Balogun said in a statement. “As an A&R, Edgar has contributed across the entire roster at Def Jam, while also spearheading one of the most exciting new artist campaigns evolving in music right now. I’m excited and inspired to play a small role in their journey as it continues to blossom.”
