The label’s signing of the singer puts her on roster which houses R&B/Hip Hop siblings August Alsina & Elijah Blake, the Rap force that is Iggy Azalea and ‘Souled Out’ singer Jhene Aiko.

Billboard Biz explains:

Tamia’s most recent studio set, 2012’s Beautiful Surprise, was released via her own Capitol/EMI-distributed label Plus One Music Group. The album, her first after a six-year hiatus, debuted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albumschart. She also garnered two Grammy Award nominations for her work on that album: best R&B song for the title track and best R&B album.

    Hopefully, this turns out in her favour and they actually do their part… cos she’s the truth!

    RIH NEEDED TO MOVE ON BUT THAT THIEF BEYONCE PERFORMANCE WAS HEAVILY COPIED WHAT A THIEF

    • XoMoDe August 25, 2014

      What Rih5head needs is singing lessons because the b**** sounds like a frog being sodomized.

    tamia is everything

    That’s…interesting. Who would have though Tamia would ever have a major label release again? Now Deborah C** just needs to sign with RCA and all will be right with the world again.

    I’m happy for Tamia! Always, one of my faves. She has proven she can sell records on an independently label. For all the other artists charting the independent path, seek Tamia! 🙂

    She will put them in Debt after her Whitney Voice/overs for that movie

      Wrong girl, Disregard this comment!

    Right now, nobody is doing the Tamia/Deborah C** thing. I hope they come up with the right material, b/c there’s a potential market for her.

    I want more of Tamia, but I’m not so sure Def Jam intends to allow Tamia to be the soulful r&b artist she is. I don’t want to see her bending over in some noisy hip-hop collabo with August.

    • ~The Arcade~ August 25, 2014

      Hmmm… I really doubt it, she genuinely seems like a well rounded individual. Its about the MUSIC. 🙂

    She has low key been a decent R&B album seller over the past few years so I hope they give her the exposure she rightfully deserves.

    She’s fantastic vocally amazing

  13. SheWon August 25, 2014

    She is vocally a beast. I can’t help but wish her well.
