Contact music has confirmed that Amerie has signed a record deal with Def Jam, The Label responsible for rihanna sucess.
Singer AMERIE is set to undergo a career overhaul - after signing a deal with the record label which turned RIHANNA into an international superstar.
The 1 Thing hitmaker has parted ways with Columbia Records and inked a deal with Def Jam, the company that secured the massive track Umbrella for Rihanna last year (07), catapulting her to global fame.
And Amerie, who has previously released two albums to moderate success, is hoping the new contract with Def Jam will help boost her career to even greater heights.
A source tells Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "Amerie's first two albums did well, but she's ready to step it up a gear now.
"She was offered a deal too good to turn down and the promise to build upon her reputation for classy and sexy R&B."
I am happy for her; I can now stop putting her in the league as Christina Milian. I’ve always loved Amerie’s Music, its just her production team was a mess. I happy her music career is still alive and I look forward to greatness from her.
