Ty Dolla $ign has partnered with Motown to launch his very own label EZMNY Records. Additionally, he’s signed his first artist, Leon Thomas, who is known as a songwriter honcho, and Andre Harris on Nickelodeon’s Victorious.
The R&B singer released a statement regarding Thomas, saying:
“Leon’s talent was just a higher level from every other singer or producer that I was hearing. The fact that he was doing everything himself, from playing bass to working Logic and Pro Tools [was amazing]. From the first song I heard, I knew he was one of them ones.”
Motown’s CEO and chairwoman, Ethiopia Habtemariam, expressed a similar sentiment.
“As a prolific songwriter, producer, and all-around creative, Ty is a craftsman who continues to showcase new depths of his artistry. We’re looking forward to this partnership with EZMNY Records and presenting their first artist Leon Thomas.“
Leon Thomas will drop new music sometime this spring. Stay tuned!
