With a roster of acts that includes Lil Wayne, Drake and even Limp Bizkit, the YMCMB line-up shows no signs of stagnating anytime soon. Now, in a recent report from HipHopWired, it appears that Birdman and Slim have signed a new singer to their label.
“America’s Got Talent” singer Sarah Lenore has reportedly signed a contract under the YMCMB umbrella. The Detroit-born singer also inked a deal with the Williams brothers’ Money Mack Music publishing company, which will market her music to a wide variety of different media outlets.
“Over the past few years I have had the chance to sign with different record labels – but I held off, hoping for that perfect opportunity. My patience paid off when the perfect opportunity came by way of Cash Money Records,” Sarah said of the signing. “I cannot think of a better way to introduce myself to the music industry than to sign to the most powerful and influential independent label in the music industry. The chance to work with Birdman and Slim and have access to their professional team and resources is both a dream and a reward.”
Birdman echoed her sentiments, saying, “Sarah is a star in every sense of the word. She is a strong performer, has a beautiful voice and lights up the room. My brother Slim and I have big plans for her. She is glamorous, but also very much the girl next door, and very relatable.”
