Rihanna Has Left Def Jam And Signed To Jay Z's Roc Nation Label

by Wochit 1:00 mins

When Rihanna first signed her record deal with Def Jam in 2005, she said then-label-president Jay Z wouldn't let her out of the office until the 17-year-old signed on the dotted line. Since then, she released all seven of her albums—including 2012's Unapologetic—on Def Jam. But much has changed since then. But now it appears that Rihanna has very quietly followed Jay Z to Roc Nation. Within the past few weeks, her Roc Nation website profile has been updated to specify that she's not just managed but also officially signed to the label. The Rihanna signing is a game-changer for Roc Nation, as RiRi will become the label's biggest star—with the possible exception of Jay himself.
