Rick Ross

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Rick Ross signed to Sony’s Epic US label last week. The deal sees him end a decade long relationship with Universal’s Def Jam. Given that Warner handles distribution for the rapper’s Maybach Music Group label, he’s now worked with all three majors. I think that means he gets a free whisky tumbler.

• Did we mention that Adam Lambert has signed up to play Eddie in Fox’s TV remake of the ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’? Which means he’ll show up, sing a song and get murdered. Which, now I think about it, is a spoiler. I just hope Lambert et al don’t murder ‘RHPS’.

• Warner Music has made Steve Waxman VP of its Canadian division. He’s been with the major for flippin ages, so about time too I say.

• Prolifica Management has gone and got itself a new writer/producer division which will be headed up by Adam Parulak, with Emma Jay Marsh and Lauren Clifford also on board.

• Tidal accidentally charged some ex-subscribers another month’s subscription this weekend, according to The Verge. But don’t worry, it refunded everyone. And while it took crappy old 320kbps cash out of those accounts, it refunded with top quality FLAC dollars. So, all’s well that ends well.
