Rapper, singer and “future bounce” founder GoldLink has officially signed to RCA Records. The emerging D.C. rapper has previously been making music independently through his own company, Squaaash Club, but has decided to join heavyweights like D’Angelo, Alicia Keys, R. Kelly, Usher, A$AP Mob, Tinashe, Bryson Tiller and G-Eazy on the RCA roster. His manager, Henny Yegezu, said the following to Billboard:

“We feel like he’s laid down that groundwork of who he is and what he is and created that core audience; this is kind of the next natural step. You sign to a label for the people and not the label. [RCA] understands that you have to let these urban alternative artists breathe. If you take them to radio too early they just become that one song. We want to create a whole culture and world that our fans live in, and then the radio hit just tips it over the top. We don’t want to be dependent on a song. And when you think of GoldLink, that’s not the type of artist he is; he’s an idea, he’s a sound and a feeling. We just want to continue to do that on a bigger scale with a bigger team.”

GoldLink is currently back in the studio working on new material. He plans to release a mixtape before recording his major label debut next year.
