Singer-songwriter Qwote has signed a deal with Jive Records through a joint venture with entrepreneur Ted Lucas' Slip-N-Slide Records (Trick Daddy, Plies, Rick Ross). The release will also carry the banner of Qwote’s own production company, Final Cut Music Group, which is signed to Lucas’ Slip-N-Slide.

Two versions of his first single, "Don't Wanna Fight" - one with labelmate Trina, and another with reggae artist Shaggy - will be available on March 31.

His as-yet-untitled debut album has no official release date as of press time.
