By on January 6, 2019

Chris Brown and his label home RCA Records have agreed to a new deal.

The Virginia singer has resided on the label for the past six years but just recently signed an extension and a new license agreement with the imprint. With the new deal in place, Brown will own his master recordings, making him one of the youngest artists to do so at 29.

“This new deal structure between Brown and RCA Records, will undoubtedly enhance the release of new Chris Brown music, content, and much more throughout 2019 and beyond,” reads a statement from the label released on Jan. 4.

Brown initially started his career on Jive, putting out his first four albums on the label, before transitioning over to RCA in 2012. His first release on RCA was the Fortune LP put out the same year.

News of the deal comes on the heels of Breezy releasing the new single “Undecided,” produced by Scott Storch and Avedon, off his forthcoming ninth studio album, Indigo. The upbeat single finds CB crooning over a sample of Shanice’s 1991 classic “I Love Your Smile.”

Along with a solo project, Chris has multiple collab projects in the works as well. Back in July, Rich The Kid announced he and Chris were prepping a joint album. Chris and Joyner Lucas are also working on a joint project and released the single “I Don’t Die” last spring.
