After honeymooning with wife Alicia Keys in the Mediterranean recently, Swizz Beatz is back to business. The producer/rapper has inked a deal with Everest Entertainment and Atlantic/Warner Records for the release of his as-yet-untitled sophomore album.
"I couldn't ask to be in a better place right now," Swizz, who was previously signed to Universal Motown, said in a statement. "Both Everest and the Atlantic/Warner team have been great and I'm looking forward to sharing this project with true fans of good music."
The partnership will not only mark the release of Swizz's upcoming album, but it's also the first musical release for Everest, which is most known for producing films including Sony Pictures Classics "Mother and Child" and Fox Searchlight's upcoming comedy "Win Win."
