It’s Official, Amerie Inks Deal With Def Jam

R&B songstress Amerie has officially inked a deal with Def Jam. The “Take Control” singer whose last release 2007’s “Because I Love It” reportedly looks forward to taking a new direction under the Def Jam imprint. Rumors of the impending deal kicked off earlier this year and gained traction on the net last week after Britain’s Daily Star newspaper reported that the singer had closed the deal. According to a Def Jam official yesterday, the ink has dried on the new contract which finds Amerie in the company of international sensation Rihanna, R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo and a host of other notable Def Jam talent. Between 2002 and 2007, Amerie released three albums under Columbia Records which included the gold certified 2002 debut “All I Have.” According to the Britain Daily Star, the songstress is hoping the new contract with Def Jam will help boost her career to even greater heights. “She was offered a deal too good to turn down and the promise to build upon her reputation for classy and sexy R&B.”
