R&B singer D’Angelo is not signing with Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records as current rumors suggest, the singer’s manager confirms to Allhiphop.com.
“While both gentlemen hold one another in the highest regard, the stories circulating in the press are totally false,” according to D’Angelo’s manager, Lindsay Guion.
D’Angelo remains signed to the RCA Music Group (J Records), Guion says. The label will release his highly-anticipated third album, which currently features guests Raphael Saadiq, Q-Tip and Roy Hargrove. Gnarls Barkley member Cee-Lo Green is expected to contribute as well.
The recently released single “I Found My Smile Again,” from the as-yet-untitled album due in 2009, is available exclusively on iTunes. [Scroll down to listen.]
