Rihanna Record Label Launches Hunt For New Talent

Published: Monday 9th Apr 2018 by David

Def Jam, the label behind the careers of Rihanna, Ashanti and Mariah Carey, is transitioning.

Keen to rebuild following the departures and dismissals of a number of its artists, the Paul Rosenberg-fronted label now sets its sights on the future and has enlisted a team of in-the-know tastemakers from the world of Urban music to help it do so.

First on the agenda?


Exciting news below…

Rosenberg rose in industry ranks to become the CEO/President of Def Jam Recordings following in the footsteps of predecessors Steve Bartels and Jay-Z.

Of course, Rihanna’s decision to part ways with the company before the unveiling of her new album ‘ANTI’ means the group now has room to find, sign and develop a new wave of artists to follow in her ground-breaking footsteps.

HITS Daily Double has now revealed that the label is now searching and high low for stream-friendly act this year and is actively scoping the scene for what they hope will be their next breakout star.

To expand the label’s aggressive pursuit of stream-friendly new acts, a cadre of hip-hop-minded consultants is serving as a scouting force. 

Exciting times!

Def Jam was founded in 1984 and lives within the Universal Music Group umbrella.


What kind of artists would you like to see emerge from the label?

    Why do you always feel the need to throw shade @ the Queen Rihanna? What does Rihanna have to do with/ Def Jam searching for new talent? How can you consistently shade Rihanna, who has a history of consecutive winning, but praise Nicki Minaj?
