Brooke Candy signs to Columbia Records

Her EP The Opulence will be released on 5 May...

No one screams fabulous and fierce more than rapper and performer Brooke Candy. We’re sure you’re all familiar with the name, and if you haven’t already seen her online, you might have noticed her as one of the faces for Diesel’s spring 2014 accessories campaign.

She’s a favourite of Nicola Formichetti, co-starred in Grimes’ video for Genesis, and with a colossal fan base already behind her, it’s no doubt that the news of Candy being signed to Columbia Records is the start of an explosive new artist.

Despite only just being signed, Candy hasn’t been off the radar. She regularly performs across the globe and has viral hits such as I Wanna F*** Right Now and Das Me released on the Internet. She comments, “I'm so thrilled to sign with Columbia Records in the UK and to join their insane roster of talent; a group of incredibly talented artists that I have admired for such a long time. Creatives get creatives, so this is the perfect partnership to share my music with the world.”

Her debut album is in the making and is being produced by label-mate Sia, but for now we have the Opulence EP to look forward to, which is released on May 5th.

This girl has an infectious energy about her, and she isn’t going to make a quiet entrance into the music industry. The storm that is Brooke Candy is on its way.
