Chris Brown,Britney Spears & Others Join RCA Music Group

Published: Tuesday 16th Aug 2011 by David

Here’s to hoping the RCA Music Group has a whole lot of room to spare because their roster has just gotten a whole lot bigger.

For today it has been confirmed that Britney Spears, Chris Brown and Ke$ha are just three of the names confirmed to have joined the label much to the delight of record executive LA Reid.

Read more below…

Speaking to Billboard Magazine, CEO Peter Edge revealed:

We are still working on our newly combined roster. But when we get done, it will have about 70-80 acts, which is a good, manageable number. It will include a lot of superstars like Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, R. Kelly, Ke$ha, Daughtry, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake.

    Nice. Timberlake aye? I guess we will be getting some new tunes.

  4. IMGUNNACHECKUBOO August 16, 2011

    @SKIN, plese sit yo’ dumbass down somewhere. It is 2011, not 2001, Britney is not half as hot(in any way)as she used to be.

    Get yourself a time machine and join us all in THIS DECADE, please and thank you.

    Kelly Rowland should leave Universal Motown (which is doing her no favors) and join RCA. Now LA Reid could get her back on track and in her own lane.

    CHRIS BREEZY 🙂

  9. teambreezy4life August 16, 2011

    i AM so happy for Chris it seem like this will really help him alot because he wont get overlooked. His promo is going to be on point… this how i know. Cause I was looking for a leaked song i really loved and could not find anywhere on youtube. Normally chris leaked s*** is all over youtube. They have erased everything… their not playing. But I feel bad for christina aguilera because she might get overshadowed by britney spears.

  10. HottieHellYeahh – Queen Of Dragging August 16, 2011

    Chris Brown! YES!

  11. Jojo August 16, 2011

    First of all…Ke$ha has always been on RCA…Second of all…LA Reid is affiliated with EPIC Records. Get yo facts right.

    RCA? INot the Best label, I feel sorry for Ciara, she’s going to be pushed in the back again by Chris and Britney. When you have the biggest popstars signing on. Ciara should join Roc Nation or def jam. I’m being serious with voices like Christina and popularity of Britney I see no success for Ciara.

  14. mel August 16, 2011

    @skin
    I agree
    Rather people like it or not britney been in this game for years. Even if they say she lip syncs Britney has made her mark.
    I love Bey and Britney.

    The label info was not written very well. JIve and RCA have split and RCA is functioning as RCA Music group again. Jive is now under Epic. Now what the relationship between RCA and Epic is, is still unclear.

  17. Rossie August 16, 2011

    Ciara has always had a hard time with labels. she isn’t always on top when the album drops, same with kelly rowland, keyshia cole, keri hilson, list goes on, they have Hot Singles but when albums drops they fail. there labels don’t push hard enough. I was surprise how Nicki Minaj even got as far as she need. this industry is weird.

  18. Dave August 16, 2011

    Y’all must really be pressed about Ciara. Ciara was not mentioned on this post, or the full Billboard source article. They never mentioned Ciara on RCA, last I checked Ciara was going to Epic. So……. why is she being mentioned by anyone? That woman will be fine. It’s called talent, drive, & persistence.

  19. VA STAND UP!!! August 16, 2011

    Ok I am confused now, is he NOT with LA Reid? Because this is making it seem like he is? I thought LA Reid was in charge of Epic? *scratches head*

    Anywho, I think this is a good look for him. Chris is one of few r&b acts on the new label so he will undoubtedly get the attention & promo he deserves! JIVE won’t doing s*** for him (like getting Britney’s album certified platinum before his when FAME has outsold her thus far) even though he was still making them money. I’m glad the folks over at RCA see how much of an asset he is! I love that there seem to such an wide spectrum of acts, Alicia, R.Kelly, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera. He’s in really good company.

    I could give a damn about Britney Spears or Kesha. Good luck to them though. *shrugs*

    ———————————————————————————-

    Yeah this article wasn’t written well at all. It made it seem like they were all gonna be under LA Reid when that is not the case. LA is taking over EPic, and these acts are gonna be under RCA which is a completely different label. Get it together TGJ! Other sites are reporting it right!

  21. Legendtina4life August 16, 2011

    Ciara was from Jive until she got dropped. Most of these artist were already on RCA(Kings of Leon & Christina). I think this is just about RCA people being moved to Epic. Isnt Epic a subdivision of RCA?

  22. Dollar$ign$kills August 16, 2011

    Umm Somethings not right here. Ke$ha was already signed to RCA. And I thought LA was taking over Epic, which is connected to Jive. Im confused.

  23. Rossie August 16, 2011

    people are going to forget about Kesha in about 2 or 3 years

  24. IMGUNNACHECKUBOO August 16, 2011

    @SKIN, I notice you didn’t defend your fav against any point I made. Cause you can’t. She’s a has been. They giving this ho tributes like she dead and buried. With her dead performances she might as well be.

    —————————————————————————————–

    You didn’t read the post correctly. Ciara has been signed with EPIC, not RCA. She isn’t listed with the acts for RCA so they aren’t any competition for her but that doesn’t neccassarily put her in a better position. No matter who she is signed with I don’t think anyone is really checking for Ciara.

    And I seriously doubt Roc Nation or Def Jam is checking for Ciara. Come on now, lets be real. With two flop albums back to back Ciara has to go with any label that will take her at this point.

  26. jill August 16, 2011

    Ciara might go to Epic nothing has been agreed upon, no contract signing. I still believe she should go to Roc Nation like Mel mentioned. Ciara will not sell like her first two albums sold, because of how the internet is now, all she offers is dancing and people want more then that. Anyways that’s cool that Chris is doing big things he just need to grow up and get rid of that damn anger problem.
    And Christina needs to do her and release grown up music like Back to Basics because she’s almost 31, that gaga s*** isn’t cutting with her.

    Justin Timberlake needs to come out with another album, he thinks he’s too good to sing?
    someone needs to let some of that air out his damn head.

    Britney? idk
    I guess lip syncing and stiff moves is in?

    Off Topic

    *side note* I hope Missy Elliot come out with another album or somebody, I can’t deal with this barbie anymore.

    *side note*
    Why aren’t these male artist bringing it? Where has the talent gone?

  27. jill August 16, 2011

    @ VA

    True, I agreed with Mel because of the promotion ciara could get, but I already know it’s not going to happen.

    I happy for Chris, I’m glad he’s doing good things with music.

  28. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 16, 2011

    Nothing unexpected there.My only question is why they signed Justin T.He was at Jive, but he hasn’t recorded anything since 2006, so how come he got a contract???Is he after all preparing to come back??

    Btw, guys, I don’t think Epic is under RCA.I think it’s a seperate label, but I’m not sure.

  29. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 16, 2011

    @VA I disagree about Ciara.Ciara was marketed correctly for the first 3 years, so she is a brand now, adequately established.Did you see what happened as soon as she released a great song (‘Ride’), she came back over night and if JIVE wasn’t so full of s***, ‘Basic Instinct’ wouldn’t flop at all and she would be on her way back.L.A. Reid knows what to do to bring her back, because people are still checking for her.

  30. Jeremydante August 16, 2011

    All you guys must not be familiar with how MUSIC GROUPS work if you’re asking about LA being at Epic & being confused. Also, RCA’s promo game will likely be different than before, being that this is a major merger & big acts like Britney will have their teams alongside them.

  31. JayRide_ August 16, 2011

    Ok dummies Ciara was NOT mentioned!! Ciara just got released From JIVE which is under RCA she got moved to Epic which is headed by LA Reid this Article is rong LA isnt in charge of RCA he switched from Def Jam to Epic and brong Usher Ciara and others to EPIC with him and JT Britney and CB were already signed to RCA

    —————————————————————————–

    Exactly! I was looking for a leaked song of his just yesterday & I couldn’t find it ANYWHERE! Thats the type of s*** JIVE should have been doing! Chris basic ass actually tweets when his s*** leaks (SMH) and whenever he even talks about a new song it’s on the net within hours! That’s exactly what he needs a label that will get that s*** blocked or deleted ASAP! I don’t know why it was so difficult for JIVE to do that for him!

    I’m not worried about Christina though! She has one thing that Britney doesn’t have, TALENT! Britney cannot compete with X-Tina’s pipes! Look at Britney’s current album sales, her time is coming to an end! Christina is now on a hit show and with a new label and musical sound she is on the right path! Christina can definitely make a musical comeback!

    Exactly rumor is she is going to sign with EPIC not RCA so why are any of you mentioning her name on this post???????? Ciara will be fine stop bringing her up in everything. Anywho CONGRATS TO ALL THE ARTIST THAT WAS “MENTION” in this post!!! SMDH AT YOU LAMES

  34. Christian August 16, 2011

    I think that was written in error because La Reid has NOTHING to do with RCA.

    But I think Britney should leave RCA and move over to Interscope. I hope she/her team re-evaluate her contract.

  37. lola August 16, 2011

    CERROR didn’t even officially sign with Epic. To be honest, it doesn’t matter what label she’s own, hardly anyone cares about her. Jive didn’t do her wrong, they gave her so much freedom to record that ghetto, shallow music and it made her album flop! They marketed her right for every album except Basic Instinct, and that’s because all of her damn singles flopped and she just had Fantasy Ride flop the year before. What’s the sense of spending millions of dollars promoting her when the singles aren’t even doing good?

    And Kelly Rowland needs to leave Universal Republic/Motown, their asses aint do s*** for her career!

  38. Levi Loves Ciara August 16, 2011

    This is proof people are still checking for Ciara. Shes not even mentioned and people are still bringing her up.

    ———————————————————————————–

    I don’t agree AT ALL! If people were checking for her then she wouldn’t have had TWO flop albums back to back! Ciara was HOT back in her ‘Goodies/Evolution’ days, she’s just not hot anymore! People are acting like just cause she signed with a new label she’s set & will start selling albums again! Like that’s all it takes! What do you think EPIC is gonna be able to perform magic tricks and suddenly get her a bigger fanbase?

    ‘Ride’ was a huge hit, biggest she had in yeras and ‘Basic Instinct’ still flopped WORSE than ‘Fantasy Ride’. She may have had a hit but that clearly didn’t bring her ‘back’. She couldn’t even sell 100k! You think that’s all because of her lack of promo. NO! People aren’t checking for her anymore! You can’t blame it all on JIVE! Part of the reason why she didn’t get good promo or funding for her videos was because of how bad ‘Fantasy Ride’ flopped. A label isn’t going to shell out money to an artist that isn’t bringing money in! Ciara even said herself that she spent a lot of money on ‘Basic Instinct’ but you see how that worked out for her!

    Ciara is a brand? Really? What can you put her name on that will sell? It sure as hell ain’t albums! Rihanna is a brand, Beyonce is a brand, JLo is a brand , hell even Britney is a brand. Ciara not so much!

    I dont know what it is gonna take for people to realize that no one is checking for Ciara anymore! I’m not hating or saying she can’t ever make a comeback but I doubt she will be the artist she once was. Ciara is a talented performer but that’s about it. She honestly is lucky to have gotten signed to any label.Everyone is acting like LA is a God and he can perform magic. LA signed JLo and she had two huge hits and was a judge on one of the most popular talent shows on TV (American Idol) and she still flopped bad. What makes you think Ciara is gonna be any different?

    Justin Timberlake obviously still is under contract. Just because he hasn’t made music in years doesn’t mean he is gonna lose his deal. What do you think that an artist just gets dropped because they haven’t made music in a while?Justin was one of JIVE”s top selling artist, they ain’t letting that boy go! EH doesn’t have to make music for another 10 years and he would still get signed at the drop of hat!

Ride only peaked at #42 because Team Ciara requested it like crazy and the s*** video generated buzz. Her label had nothing to do with Rides success, Ciara still has fans and people checking for her.

  43. Levi Loves Ciara August 16, 2011

    Why would people buy Basic Instincts when it wasnt a good album. Compare Basic Instinct with the wotk the The Dream did on Beyonces 4 and Rihannas Rated R. It doesnt compare. I love Ciara, but I regret buying Basic Instinct.

    Fantasy Ride was a great album, but it flopped for many reasons. The album was supposed to come out in early 2008 but got pushed all the way back to summer of 2009. People have a short attention span these days. Artist need to keep up to speed to stay on top. Push back an album almost a full year and people will lose intrest. Plus it leaked months before. Everyone listen to the leaks and counted the album out before they actual got to listen to the final offical version.

    And if Justin T and Ke$ha do a ballad collab!!!

    This is exciting news.

    So Jive has just folded under the RCA Music Group umbrella? I really don’t give a damn but they damn sure better get their artist CD promotional crap together. F.A.M.E. is one of the best CD’s or 2011 they need to promote it like the quality work that it is! LA Reid, if you screw over Breezy I’m gonna come gunning for you! 🙂

    Ok…so she had a top ten hit with ‘Love S** Magic’ (thanks to Justin Timberlake) and her album STILL flopped? Mainstream ain’t hardly checking for her! Then she had a hit with ‘Ride’ on the r&b charts (which is her main audience) and ‘Basic Instinct’ flopped harder than ‘Fantasy Ride’! What don’t you understand?!?! How does someone who supposedly still has fans and people ‘checking’ for her flop back to back?! Makes no damn sense to sane people!

    So yes you ARE delusional! NO ONE is checking for Ciara! #DEAL

Im very sure she knows what has worked and what didn’t work concerning her music career. You live and you learn and Im very sure she took good notes and is ready to move on. Hell her name was no where to be found in this article they saw LA REID and AUTOMATICALLY THREW HER NAME UP! WHICH MEANS THEY ARE CHECKING FOR HER BUT YET THEY WANT TO SAY HER FANS ARE DELUSIONAL???????? HMMMMMMMMM OK YEA WHATEVER. STICK TO THE ARTICLE AND THE ARTIST THAT ARE MENTION AND MOVE ON ALREADY WITH THIS CIARA HATE IM VERY SURE SHE APPRECIATE YOU CLOWNS FOR BEING SOOOO INVOLVED IN HER CAREER N LIFE 🙂
