WHAT? Jhene Aiko Signs to Def Jam!?

Wow, looks like singer/songwriter Jhene Aiko has landed herself a record deal. She revealed the news via twitter by tweeting a photo of her and No I.D, Def Jam’s new VP of A&R, with her contract papers. The caption read: “Supriiiiiiiise …… Signed by Dion ! Merry Christmas!” She said she's actually signed to No I.D.'s label, which is distributed through Def Jam. Ironically, I was just talking about Jhene and the record deal dilemma. Although she now has major label backing, Jhene has stated time & time again that her goals have nothing to do with become famous.
I love making music that’s my main thing. I love making music for people to hear because I feel like I have something to say. If it takes me to winning a Grammy or being as popular as Lady Gaga, fine, but that’s not why I’m doing it. I want people to know that because there’s a difference when people are doing it for [fame] purposes. Like Lauryn Hill; I don’t think she set out to be as popular as she ended up being. But because it happened and she was so genuine with her music it turned into something even bigger.
