RCA Records is excited to announce the signing of emerging rapper/singer and viral sensation Brooke Candy. Candy, who has sparked an overwhelming amount of interest online and created a buzz with her empowering fierce lyrics and visuals, has been tapped by Diesel creative director Nicola Formichetti as one of the faces of Diesel’s 2014 spring accessories campaign. Candy hit the music scene in 2012 co-starring in the music video for Grimes’ hit single “Genesis” and shortly after released her own highly successful viral track “Das Me.”
“Brooke is a riveting, engaging artist,” says Peter Edge, CEO, RCA Records. “When Keith Naftaly and I met Brooke for the first time we were blown away with her captivating charismatic presence. I am thrilled that this dynamic young artist has chosen RCA as her home. We look forward to working with her and bringing her artistic vision to the forefront of the music industry.”
