Jenn Morel is making a name for herself in the music industry, recently signing with UMLE through a joint venture between Aftercluv and Universal Music Latino, Billboard has learned.
The Dominican-born, LA-based rapper first started in the biz as a professional dancer in music videos for Drake, Nicki Minaj and Trey Songz. In 2017, she kicked off her singing career with the catchy dembow song “Ponteme,” which made her a hot new artist in Europe, especially in Italy, where she had many sold-out events.
Now, with the mission of taking her music to an international level, Morel has signed with UMLE through a joint venture between Universal Music Latino with Aftercluv, the dance entertainment division of Universal Music Latin America that has artists such as Raymix and Juan Magan.
Both labels firmly believe in a long-term career for Jenn and will work together to bring music lovers a multicultural project that will progressively develop in two worlds: Latin and Anglo.
“I am very happy to have the full support of UMLE,” she said in a press statement. “I feel safe with the unique vision and structure that this union brings between Aftercluv and Universal Latino and I am super excited for everything that is to come.”
Currently, Jenn is working on a “Ponteme” remix and an EP with new music.
