Jennifer Lopez bounces back to Epic Records

Jennifer Lopez is reuniting with her longtime mentor L.A. Reid at his Epic Records music label.
The Booty singer has cut ties with bosses at Capitol Records and the Island Def Jam Music Group in favour of signing a new long-term contract with Sony Music-owned label, Epic.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Jennifer back home with me to Epic Records,” Reid, the Chairman and CEO of Epic, says in a statement. “Jennifer is a true global icon with a magnetism that seers across music, film, and TV and I’m excited to be working together again.”
Lopez released six albums between 1999 and 2007 under Epic, including her bestseller, 2001’s J.Lo. In 2010, she left the label for Island Def Jam, where Reid was CEO at the time, and released two records, 2011’s Love? and her most recent effort, 2014’s A.K.A. via Capitol Records.
Reid moved back to Epic in 2011 so Lopez’s move will see the pair reunited professionally once again.
The new business deal comes at an exciting and busy time for Lopez, who is currently serving as a judge on American Idol, starring in police drama Shades of Blue, and in May (16), will pick up her Las Vegas residency again at The AXIS Theater in Planet Hollywood.
