Rihanna Leaves Def Jam & Joins Jay Z's Roc Nation

Rihanna has left her longtime label Def Jam after fulfilling her contract with the company and she has now joined forces with Jay Z‘s Roc Nation, according to MTV.

While the switch happened all the way back in 2013 when Jay partnered Roc Nation with Universal Music Group, it was first pointed out when Def Jam added RiRi to the “Legacy” section of its website.

Roc Nation’s website now also says that she is part of the company’s label and not just the management side.

ARE YOU EXCITED for Rihanna to release an album with Roc Nation?

    well she was signed first with jay-z so no suprises! waiting for another hit from ririiiii

  • huh

    @GGGive: ok so that confuses me, so she went from being signed to jay-z first then transfer to LA Reid at Def Jam and now back to jay-z. i just thought she was purely managed by jay-z period regardless of record label.

  • Lauren

    Oh my cutie pie, I’m excited for her. Jay-Z always believed in her, so why should she not support the people who she can trust since a decade. Trust is worth more than everything in this business.
