Young Money/Cash Money Records has added a couple new artists to their roster to kick off 2012. Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter PJ Morton recently revealed that he signed a record deal with Cash Money Records. The neo-soul crooner made the big announcement via his Twitter account last month.
“So it’s official, I’m the newest member signed to the Young Money roster! Let’s go,” tweeted Morton. “Shout out to [Mack Maine] and [Lil Wayne].”
Morton also released a statement about his new deal.
“I’m very happy to be a part of such a force in the music industry,” said Morton in a statement. “Not only that, but a label that promotes being creative and being who you are. I couldn’t have asked for more.”
In November 2011, Morton released a new single called “Built for Love”featuring Jazmine Sullivan. The single was the lead single of his upcoming album. There’s no word what PJ plans to do with the single because of his new deal. Only time will tell.
Congratulations to PJ Morton on his new record deal. It’s great to see a major record label show love to a neo-soul singer. We wish PJ the best and can’t wait for the new album!
