V Confidential: Is Mavado Signing With Def Jam?

Word on the Caribbean curb is that dancehall wonder Mavado is going Def. The man behind the constant spinner “So Special” is said to be in talks with the label that Russell built about his new recording home. No word on how close to completion a Def Jam deal is, but we’re excited about the prospect of one of Jamaica’s dopest artists linking with a marquee imprint—as long as it doesn’t lead to obligatory duets with Adrienne Bailon.

Check out Mavado’s new Daseca-produced record, “When You Feel Lonely,” below.
