Grammy-winning R&B singer Brandy has signed a new record deal with RCA Records.
The deal, a joint venture between RCA and producer Breyon Prescott’s Chameleon Records, returns the singer to the Sony Music Entertainment realm. She previously called Epic Records home, but severed ties with the label in 2009 after the commercial disappointment of her only album for the label, 2008’s “Human.”
“This is truly a blessing,” Brandy said in a statement released Monday, announcing the deal, which sees her teaming up with Breyon Prescott, Peter Edge and Tom Corson. “Breyon and the team at RCA/Chameleon are creative and forward-thinking and I am thrilled to be working with them.” Brandy joins a newly restructured RCA Records, where she’ll be on a roster that includes Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, R. Kelly, Ke$ha, Daughtry, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake.
She is currently in the studio working on her RCA debut, tentatively slated for an early 2012 release.
