Muni Long Signs With Def Jam Recordings

Muni Long has signed with Def Jam Recordings via her SuperGiant Records label, according to Def Jam chairman and CEO Tunji Balogun.
Previously unsigned, the rapper’s platinum-certified song “Hrs and Hrs” became a major hit in 2021. She was signed to Capitol Records in 2009, although she spent much of her time producing music for other singers, including Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and Fifth Harmony, until she relaunched her solo career in 2019. She released the album, “Public Displays of Affection” in November 2021.

“It has been a lifelong goal of mine to be able to bring my gifts to the world. This alignment with Tunji and Def Jam for a global takeover is a literal dream come true,” Long said in a statement. “Supergiant Records started as an idea between myself and my husband Raysean in 2019 and over the course of the next two years we would invest, hire, strategize and create. As our team grew, so did our success, and as a result of hours and hours of hard work and intense focus, this year we reaped a bountiful harvest. Many, many thanks to my partners, Rashad Tyler, Raysean Hairston, Chris Anokute and all those who contributed to this historic moment. We look forward to an incredible journey with Tunji and the Def Jam family.”

Balogun added: “Muni represents everything a Def Jam artist should be: bold, independent, authentic, creative, visionary, and one of a kind. I have followed her artistry and journey very closely, from her time as a writer for some of the biggest artists in the world, to the incredible run of success she is now so deservedly enjoying. Muni sets the new standard for where we want to go as a label. I’m thrilled to join with her and her world-class team in this exciting partnership. With all the amazing work done by Priscilla and Raysean, Chris, Rashad and the Supergiant team, along with J.R. McKee and his MPR team – combined with the resources and passion of the Def Jam family – the sky’s the limit.”
