CeeLo Green will try his hand at artist management, as the new manager of singer Juliet Simms.
Juliet Simms represented “Team CeeLo” on NBC’s hit show “The Voice,” where the Atlanta rap star serves as a judge of the contestants.
Through a new deal with Primary Wave Music, CeeLo will now take over managing the career of former contestant Juliet Simms.
“Juliet has that electricity in her voice, originality, likability and real brand-ability,” CeeLo Green told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “As I told her from the beginning, I’m dedicated to building her career and with the help of Primary Wave’s resources, I’m confident that she’ll be the girl to watch in 2013.”
According to CeeLo Green, he liked Juliet Simms work ethic on “The Voice,” in addition to the fact that she’s already released two albums through her group Automatic Loveletter for RCA and Epic Records.
Juliet Simms is preparing to release a new single entitled “Wild Child,” which will be available on iTunes December 11.
Her full-length, untitled debut will be released in spring of 2013.
