The rumor mill is grinding out some interesting new news about Drake‘s OVO Sound Imprint.
Based on information gathered from Necole Bitchie (citing a Mediabase newsletter), OVO Sound, started back in December by Drizzy and his team Oliver El-Khatib and Noah “40″ Shebib has just inked a deal with singer Cassie to the Warner Bros. imprint. The newsletter states:
“R&B singer and occasional model Cassie, who had one of the biggest 2006 rhythm-crossover hits with the minimal electro Ryan Leslie produced “Me & U” and has since then been signed under Sean Diddy Combs exclusive Bad Boy/Interscope distribution partnership, has now inked another deal with Drake and Noah “40″ Shebib’s OVO Sound, their first big signing. Riding high on the release of her new mixtape RockaByeBaby, well-received by fans and critics, Cassie is now preparing for a new single later this year, followed by her sophomore LP next Spring.”
