J. Holiday Talks Split With Def Jam, Readies Third Album

With the No. 5 record on the Billboard 200 with ‘Back Of My Lac,’ J. Holiday’s “Bed” could be heard everywhere in 2007. However, his second album ‘Round 2,’ released in 2009, did not equal the same success as his debut project, which caused Capitol records to drop him from the label.

In 2010, he found a new home with Def Jam, but differences in the partnership unraveled. “I just had to get out of there and right now I’m just doing my own thing with “Sign My Name” and I got the album coming,” Holiday told YouKnowIGotSoul.

Now fully independent, J. Holiday released “Sign My Name” a record to show fans he is still at work. “Sign My Name” is probably the song that should have came after “Suffocate,” so I’m back with “Sign My Name.” It’s the third album, I’m back!”

He is currently recording new songs for his third album, he plans to work with Common, Raphael Saadiq and Q-Tip.
