Mary J. Blige Honored With Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Primary Wave was founded by former record label executive Larry Mestel in 2006. The company sold the the bulk of its catalog to BMG in 2013, and then started rebuilding its catalog when it acquired the writer's share of Smokey Robinson's catalog in 2016, with the backing of a $300 million war chest from BlackRock and other institutional investors.
