In January 2021, the musician Béatrice Martin, known for her music released as Cœur de pirate, purchased the label from its founder Éli Bissonnette, and now acts as its president and artistic director.[2] Bissonnette had stepped down amid accusations of fostering a toxic workplace, and disregarding allegations of sexual abuse directed against former label artist Bernard Adamus.[3] In February 2021, Martin announced that the label would be rebranded as Bravo Musique to acknowledge the successes of its artists.[4][5]
