A young Texan girl by the name of Megan Nicole just got an upgrade.
Bad Boy Records founder Sean “Diddy” Combs and label President Harve Pierre have signed the 18-year-old YouTube songstress to the label.
She has over 1 million YouTube subscribers and has grossed more than 250 million views. This is just from doing covers of songs like “The Lazy Song” and “Call Me Maybe.” Bad Boy/Interscope execs plan to boost her platform even further.
“She has done an incredible job on building a solid fan base and we are here to enhance that and ensure her dreams come true,” Pierre told AllHipHop.com. “Welcome home, Megan.”
Diddy is also very confident in Megan’s talent. “Megan Nicole is a complete package that I am extremely excited to add to the Bad Boy roster,” he said. “She is a talented singer, songwriter, musician and entertainer. Megan Nicole is a perfect fit for the new future at Bad Boy.”
Currently, she is putting in studio time recording music for her Bad Boy/Interscope debut and preparing for a U.S. tour with The Wonder Girls scheduled for this fall.–Stacy-Ann Ellis
