Rihanna’s no longer under her manager’s “Umbrella.”
The pop/R&B superstar has parted ways with manager Marc Jordan in favor of new management with mentor Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint. Rihanna has released four albums under Jordan’s guidance nd plans to release her fifth CD, Loud, on Nov. 16. It was Jay-Z, however, who signed the singer to Def Jam in 2005.
“I am so excited to take this next step in my career,” the spunky hitmaker said in a statement Wednesday.
The 22-year-old star is also launching a new company called Rihanna Entertainment. She says it will “merge all of her businesses, including music, film, fragrance fashion and book ventures.”
