Rihanna Leaves with Def Jam, Signs with Jay Z’s Roc Nation


RihannaNow.comRihanna has found a new label home. The singer is no longer contractually obligated to her longtime label, Def Jam, and is now signed with Jay Zs Roc Nation.

A source at Def Jam confirmed to MTV News that the singer switched labels last month soon after Hov partnered Roc Nation with Universal Music Group.

However, the source says that Rihanna will still have Def Jam backing the marketing and promotion of her next record, although its unclear if the Def Jam logo will appear on her next release. She’s currently recording the follow-up to 2012’s Unapologetic.

The diva now joins an impressive roster that includes J. Cole, Rita Ora, Jay Electronica and more.
