Def Jam Signs Tamia


Grammy-nominated singer Tamia has signed with Def Jam Recordings, signaling her return to the major label ranks. Her first album for the label — and sixth overall — is expected in spring 2015.

Tamia’s most recent studio set, 2012′s Beautiful Surprise, was released via her own Capitol/EMI-distributed label Plus One Music Group. The album, her first after a six-year hiatus, debuted at No. 6 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. She also garnered two Grammy Award nominations for her work on that album: best R&B song for the title track and best R&B album.
