After whetting appetites with summer sizzler ‘Made For Now,’ Pop icon Janet Jackson is putting the pieces in place for the next phase of her illustrious career.
A phase that now includes media giant Paradigm.
In an announcement made moments ago, it was revealed that Jackson has signed a global representation deal with the talent agency whose other titan clients include Ed Sheeran and Coldplay.
As part of the partnership, Paradigm will rep the diva in all areas, including touring, theatrical, film, branding and more.
The move sees the 52-year-old switch from longtime home WME (William Morris Endeavor).
Speaking on the deal, Sam Gores, Chairman and CEO of Paradigm said in a statement:
“Janet Jackson is one of the most iconic and culturally significant artists of all time and we are thrilled to partner with her to create global opportunities for her as an artist and for the art she creates. We will also seek inspiring opportunities to support Janet’s long history and dedication to social activism and female and gender advocacy.” [Source]
The news comes on the heels of Jackson moving her Rhythm Nation label from BMG to Cinq Music earlier this year.
With her business affairs in solid shape, attention now turns to the star’s new album – which is due in 2019.
