Recently Omarion and Cee-Lo have been in the news in regards to their new label homes.  Here’s the scoop.

.

Omarion is the latest artist to sign with Lil Wayne’s Young Money imprint, a rep from Universal recently confirmed.  This may look like a good look, but Omarion has signed to Young Money.  Not Young Money/Universal.  That means that their is no company that has agreed to distribute Omarion‘s music.  Without a distributor, signing to Young Money really means nothing in my opinion.  I’m sure that won’t prevent Omarion, from talking about how awesome he is.  That guy is such a chief.

Cee-Lo has also inked a deal with the re-launched Elektra imprint.  According to Elektra head honcho John JanickWe are planning on building an eclectic brand, we’re looking for artists with potential. We’re not an incubator label; we’re going to develop artists and get them to the next level.”  Well isn’t that a nice generic quote from a label exective.  I don’t know enough about this situation to know if it’s a good look, but I do know that Cee-Lo is ill.  The Soul Machine is one of my favorite albums ever.  I think I remember reading in an interview that Cee-Lo has a whole album with Jazze Pha beats that is just sitting on a shelf somewhere.  Talk about an album of panty droppers.  I need that in my life.
