Is There Trouble? Rihanna Switches Record Labels!! All The Details HERE!

jay z rihanna record label roc nation

Very happy for her…but we also smell some serious beef cooking!

After fulfilling her long contract with Def Jam, Rihanna has inked a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation record label!

Rumors of the switch began swirling this morning, when some clever peeps noticed RiRi was under Def Jam's "Legacy" section on their website—thus hypothesizing that she decided to switch major labels, leaving them behind for good.

Sources have also learned that the change might've actually occurred in April 2013, when Jay partnered Roc Nation with Universal Music Group…

But we have no confirmation from Rihanna or her camp on the matter.

While the switch makes sense, we couldn't help but feel like the deal might get in the way of Ri and Drake's budding relationship!

Drizzy and Jay have had an ongoing fondu and art fueled feud for months now, and the Take Care singer does have his own OVO Sound label—so we're wondering why she didn't sign with him.

So curious as to where her loyalties are!

It's understandable to stick with Jay because he signed her in 2005, but we can't help but wonder how Drake must be feeling!

We are SO confused!!

After Mariah Carey kinda admitted to Billboard mag that she'd be doing a Beyoncé-type release for her latest untitled album, the songstress is taking it all back…

Or at least her record label is!

According to Laura Swanson, Def Jam's exec VP of media, the album will be released in a VERY traditional way—with a physical copy and digital download available the same day.

Kanye West Needs Church’s Permission For One Of His Tracks! Will He Get It In Time For Yeezus Release??

wenn20332763(1)Kanye West and his peeps should’ve known that an album called Yeezus would come with its fair share of dramz!!

Apparently Kanye is an uberperfectionist and is driving Def Jam executives “crazy” with last min changes, additional tracks, and legal issues galore.

No wonder the album cover looked so slapped together!! ‘Ye has been dealing with other, more important musical matters (and probably will be up until the very last minute), so it looks like there was simply not a lot of time to spend on the album art this year.

Move aside Frank Sinatra! Here comes Justin Timberlake!

The Mirrors singer was caught in the recording studio with Jay-Z, Nas, and Timbaland, all thanks to an Instagram photo posted by Def Jam’s Lenny Santiago!

Better yet, Lenny captioned the pic with a reference to the Rat Pack. He wrote:

Frank Ocean Lost In The Midst Of A Lawsuit! Producer Claims He Copied His Song!

frank ocean sued over song lost

Say it ain’t so!

After flying high at the Grammys and spending some quality time with his mom at Paris Fashion Week, Frank Ocean came home to some terrible news. He’s being sued!

We all love the hit Lost, but apparently songwriter Micah Otano is claiming that it was ripped off from his song Daylight! Now he’s hoping to claim royalties and get credit for helping produce the single.

Hopefully this isn’t true, but it certainly doesn’t help that Micah has worked directly with channel ORANGE producer Malaya, who he claims stole the song from him.

It’s sad to see this happen just when things were going so well for Frank, but we hope he can get this lawsuit sorted out soon so he can get back to working on his new album!
