Great news for fans of former X-Factor USA contestants Astro, Chris Rene, and Marcus Canty! They’ve all signed contracts with Epic Records under chairman…yep, you guessed it… L.A. Reid. If you watched the show, you remember that he mentored all of the guys on the show.
The competition’s winner Melanie Amaro recently announced her deal with Epic, and now the boys join a roster that also includes Ciara. Reid was recently appointed chairman of the label, and signing all of these young acts gives him the opportunity to pump new life into the brand. Can’t wait to hear the projects that come out of these new partnerships!
