Jay-Z may be celebrating his fifth wedding anniversary with his queen in Cuba, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t getting deals done.
Only weeks after signing a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music, Jay-Z signs a new deal with Universal Music for himself and his Roc Nation label.
The new deal is a great look for Roc Nation, and once the deal is finalized, Roc Nation will serve as a stand alone label under Universal’s musical umbrella.
In a quick statement, Jay-Z said:
“We are looking forward to working with Lucian and the incredible team he’s assembled at Universal. We would like to applaud Lucian for collaborating with us to strike a new age deal. This agreement presents a unique opportunity for Roc Nation’s artists-being able to continue to operate as an independent label with the strength, power and reach of the best major. I look forward to a long and prosperous collaboration with UMG. It feels good to be home.”
