Yesterday, Diddy sent a pair of tweets that indicated that singer Megan Nicole
had been signed to Bad Boy Records. The first tweet
was a "shout out to the Bad Boy family," listing Nicole alongside Bad Boy artists Los, Cassie, French Montana, Red Cafe and Machine Gun Kelly. The second tweet
was "TURN UP!," directed toward Nicole and ending with "#BADBOY2.0." Diddy and the label have been referring to the current Bad Boy roster as "Bad Boy 2.0."
This isn't the first I had heard of Nicole. In April, singer/songwriter Jack Knight said on Twitter that he was in the studio with Nicole and that she was a Bad Boy artist. I followed up with him to verify his statement
and his response was to delete the tweet and tell me "no."
Earlier this month, songwriter/producer Angel Jerez mentioned Nicole
, saying that he was in the studio working on a record for "Bad Boy's pop artist."
The 18 year old singer has developed a substantial following online, with over 100,000 followers on Twitter, 600,000 likes on Facebook and 900,000 subscribers on YouTube.
