R&B singer/raptress Lumidee, whose hit single "Never Leave You (Uh Oh)" dominated the airwaves in '03, has stepped forward to confront recent reports suggesting she inked a deal with Young Money, claiming a hacker broke into her Twitter account and posted a compromised tweet.
Taking to Twitter, Lumidee recently clarified that no new record deals have been signed on her end.
"I did not sign a deal with anyone!!! Sorry for the false info corny a** people HAD access to my page....," she tweeted March 5th. (Lumidee's Twitter)
Prior to its removal, a tweet appeared on her Twitter pronouncing her as Young Money's newest signed artist.
Lumidee has not signed to the YMCMB label group, the "Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)" singersinger clarified on Twitter on Monday. "I did not sign a deal with anyone!!! Sorry for the false info corny a** people HAD access to my page....," she tweeted. Earlier, a tweet appeared on Lumidee's page stating, "I Just signed a Deal With #YMCMB :D," which was then removed. Lumidee's most recent release was the 2011 single "Dale Mami," with rapper Somaya Reece. (Billboard)
Although she has released a few mixtapes since her debut 9 years ago, Lumidee's sophomore album, and most recent one, dates back roughly five years ago.
Remember singer/rapper Lumidee? Of course you do. Who wasn't listening to "Never Leave You (Uh Oooh, Uh Oooh)," which featured Fabolous and Busta Rhymes, in 2003? Anyway, Lumidee hasn't released an album 2007's Unexpected and mostly stuck to the mixtape scene since then, but it appears that she might have big plans for this year. (Complex)
There are a line up of new female artists already on the label. Last month, R&B singer Christina Milian revealed she inked a deal with Weezy's Young Money team.
"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... I went to Wayne and [we] played him some of the music. 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. . (97.1 AMP Radio)
