Adrienne Bailon Signs With Def Jam

Adrienne Bailon Signs With Def Jam

Adrienne Bailon (in UES sneakers) attends the Knicks Bowl 10 at 300 New York at NYC’s Chelsea Piers on Thusday (April 2).

Last week, I ran into the 25-year-old former Cheetah Girl (in French Connection) at the 10th anniversary celebration of Nylon Magazine at NYC’s Thompson LES. There, I learned MTV picked up the second cycle of New Afternoons on MTV, which will kick off on April 13th. She’ll be hosting the afternoon block of programming on MTV and will also host specials and do celeb interviews.

Adrienne also just signed her first solo music deal with Def Jam and L.A Reid. She’s in the studio and working with chart topping producers including Brian Michael Cox (Usher, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige), The Dream (Rihanna, Beyonce, Mariah Carey), K. Brisco (Britney Spears’ “Womanizer”). I heard nothing but “club bangers” will be on the upcoming album!

    BAD move, Def Jam is a sinking ship!!! her album wont see the light of day. The only females they care about are Mariah and Rihanna

  • Shisha

    I hate Def Jam since they dropped Christina Milian (who’s so much prettier and has a beautiful voice) for this talentless MJ look-a-like fugly hag Rihanna. But well, I like Adrienne, hope she’ll be successful and won’t experiment the same thing as Christina. However, I think she was better before, what happened to her? I didn’t even recognize her in these pictures! What’s with her face? doesn’t look like her at all…..and not in a good way.

  • lalalove

    Oh great! Something to look forward to, another album with lots of substance. (NOTE the sarcasm!)
    The entire Def Jam staff is corrupt. No artist from Def Jam puts out GOOD music.

  • Ava

    I’m sure she will sing some stupid pop danity kane soulds BS, that no one will buy. Look at everyone other girl that sounds like her and puts out an album. She is a Cheetah girl, no one will take her seriously. It’s going to be a bunch of pop techno crap that they like to call ‘music’. Her first single will be about lovin’ someone or dance on the dance flow (not floor, flow.)

  • cutie pie

    oh hell.. another one from the Kardashian hoe crew… i guess the big fake butt and the chasing of black men will come next. I would never support nothing from her white butt!

    she looks great, but best wishes to her because Ive heard def jam isnt too good

    @ Shisha
    That is very false. Christina Milian was dropped because she was a flop.
    Def Jam stayed with her through 3 flopping albums. 2 WW, also another one that was just released in Europe.
    They offered her “SOS” BUT NO SHE TURNED IT DOWN! To go off to Miami and make music with her BF.
    “Say I” flopped and after her first week sales came in they were low so they dropped her. She had it coming.
    She blamed it on RIhanna to get more attention and not have to admit she was a flop.
    After blogs started calling her a flop, she did an interview AND FLATLY DENIED SHE EVER SAID THAT.
    Check your facts, honey.

    Christina milian has a hell of alot more talent than that ho bag, slut, never sticks up for herself rihanna and just because Christina was dropped does not mean her music will die. She is way hotter and much more attractive thaan rihanna. oh and by the way at least christina does’nt date wannabe thugs who beat on women and then don’t admit to it, so i guess christina reallyis the winner here.

    def jam’s ship done, hit the rocks, sank and collided with a submarine on the down…
    this kardasian clone/whore is just another write off on a list of bad investments to take to bankruptcy court…

  • zzz

    ugly face

  • mju8

    Is this the same girl who leaked her own nudie photos and pretended someone was extorting her????? I guess this is the new sure-fire way to get your own record deal these days

  • dj marco andre

    I’m actually a fan of Adrienne from the group 3LW in which she was lead, or at least sounded so.

    Cheetah girls was a wise career move that probably saved her, but doesnt not take away from her true Musical roots and Talent in R&B/Hip Hop. Not to mention the new levels Def Jam could bring her too in order to shed the cheesy Cheetah Girls Pop stereotype sound/image.

    And yes she does look different but it’s all about makeup, lighting, and angles that are more flaterring.

    She is a lil older now too. It’s been almost 9 years in the game right?

    I guess it all falls on the Production Team and how they present her because I know she about working and thats probably it. And we know she can sing.

    Her voice tone always stood out to me.

    I have connects to Def Jam, and I wish Adrienne B. the best however Labels today are in so much Trouble, and there isn’t mush $$ in the Music Industry anymore, nor will there ever be again she should have signed A Distribution I’am trying to convince her Celeb Friend, and good person Ms. Raven-Symone to do. Ms. Adrienne Bailon has my best wishes.

  • tih_ago

    Hope she the best!

  • MMA

  • Mimi

    I love adrienne and plus she is really pretty and she has all my support and i love the kardashions so all you low life losers need to get a life because adrienne is doing her thing

  • rodrigo

    Adrienne is natually a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice! She is definately playing the game right. She was a former member of 3lw and has sold 1.2 million with them. She was also a former member of The Cheetah Girls and has sold a number of 3.3 million albums with that group, She knows exactly what she wants and I believe she’s taking the right path! I will continue to support her & wish her good luck!

  • Suppress your appetite
