After almost a decade with Def Jam, our Barbadian rebel, Rihanna has reportedly decided to part ways with the record label. RiRi has of course thought this entire decision out and has already inked a new deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation label. Although she was not signed to Roc Nation (record label home to J. Cole and Rita Ora to name a few), Rihanna has been managed by the label for the duration of her career.

Despite rumors, there is no bad blood between Def Jam and RiRi; and there should not be. Rihanna released SEVEN majorly successful and lucrative albums for the label! So we are sure that she has done more than fulfill her quota at the label.

With her latest career move, Rihanna has proven once again that she takes notes from her mentor, Jay Z. Last month, Jay partnered Roc Nation with one of music’s largest corporations, Universal Music Group.

Don’t expect to see Rihanna celebrating with her new labelmates on her infamous Instagram page, though, as it has been deactivated! We’re not sure if the pop star decided to deactivate it herself, or the risqué topless photos from her LUI Magazine shoot violated Instagram’s terms and caused the app to deactivate her page altogether. Either way, we’re excited to hear some new music from RiRi with her new home team!
