Beyonce Signs Teen Singers To Record Label

Is manager the next role on the Beyonce agenda?


Beyonce has signed several teen music acts to her label Parkwood Entertainment.

Their brand new recording contracts are worth $1.5 million and appear to mark a new era of music distribution for Beyonce, this time as a label executive figure (and perhaps future manager?) rather than sole lead artist.

Beyonce discovered the girls – Chloe Bailey, 17, and Halle Bailey, 15 – after they posted a cover of her song Pretty Hurts on youtube, which quickly went viral:

It’s easy to see how they got signed, the talent speaks for itself! The girls also play keyboard and guitar.

14-year-old singer/songwriter Sophie Beem also scored a record deal.

Not much is known about Beem as yet, but youtube videos show she’s a powerhouse vocalist who plays keyboard and guitar, too.

There’s a gritty Taylor Swift vibe to her sound:

This isn’t the first time Beyonce has opened doors for female talent throughout her career. She famously put together her all-female band The Sugar Mamas in 2006 after realising her fame meant she had the power to promote the kind of gender representation she had wanted to see growing up:

“When I was younger I wish I had more females who played instruments to look up to. I played piano for like a second but then I stopped,”. “I just wanted to do something which would inspire other young females to get involved in music so I put together an all-woman band.”
