Katy Perry Starts Her Own Record Label — And Announces Her First Artist (VIDEO)
Katy Perry is going from music artist to music mogul. The “Dark Horse” singer took to Twitter on Tuesday to make a very big announcement: She’s starting her own record label! It’s called Metamorphosis Music, and Katy’s already signed her first artist.
“I am so ECSTATIC to finally announce my NEW label Metamorphosis Music & my first signing, the incredibly talented & soulful FERRAS!” Katy said.
Katy’s label is a “joint venture” with her own label, Capitol Records — and they haven’t wasted any time getting the ball rolling when it comes to making Ferras a star. His self-titled EP (executive produced by Katy herself) is already on iTunes, and includes a song that features Katy called “Legends Never Die.”
The 29-year-old breakout artist tweeted excitedly himself about the news, and will be joining his new boss out on the road on her Prismatic Tour (which kicked off May 7) later this week.
“Ferras is a man with a message, and a unique lyrical way of communicating his perspective on life that makes you feel connected to every note when you listen,” Katy said in a statement, according to MTV. “‘Speak in Tongues’ is a song with raw emotional power that I wish I wrote. I believe he is going to be an important artist to watch unfold. I am SO ecstatic the world gets to hear his music both online and on tour with me.”
If Katy’s shooting for world domination, her own record label isn’t a bad place to start. We don’t hate it!
