Newly signed Young Money singer Christina Milian has opened up about inking allegiance with rap star Lil Wayne's record label and explained how they came together to form a partnership.
Milian said from the instant Weezy heard her music, he knew Young Money would be a perfect fit for her.
"I'm going to be... Young Money!" Milian exclaimed in an interview. "Yeah, I've signed with Young Money. It was pretty awesome. This weekend we had a big party, a big YMCMB party, and Drake was performing and we were all up on the stage and Wayne got up there and he announced it himself. And so I was kind of surprised and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, this is awesome!' ... I've already halfway gotten there and when my mom and I went to Wayne and we played him some of the music, off the second song, he was like, 'I love it. Let's do this deal.' I have some music that's already going to be on it and the second half I'm working with them now. ... When they did a little background check, they saw even the songwriting, all that kind of stuff adds on top of, alright, she's an actress, she's a pretty face, she can actually sing, but not to mention she's a songwriter. I thought that was cool that they even saw that." (97.1 AMP Radio)
A few days ago, the singer's ex-husband The-Dream congratulated her new move.

Weezy announced Milian's Young Money affiliation during a pre-Grammy Awards party Saturday night.
In a bit of a surprised move, Christina Milian has officially signed to Young Money. No, seriously... Last night at Cash Money's Pre-Grammy party, Lil Wayne made a special announcement. Before receiving his plaque and taking a shot at Jay-Z and Kanye West, the Young Money general announced Christina Millian had in fact signed with the label. "I got the beautiful Ms. Christina Milian with me tonight... Ya'll make some noise for Ms. Christina Milian. Young Money Christina Milian!" Interesting to see how this plays out for both parties.
