Karlie Redd is the latest from “Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta” to secure a major win in the music industry.
The new signee is Legacy Records’ first female artist. Earlier this month, the label hosted an exclusive red-carpet dinner event in Atlanta to kick off Redd’s record deal and to preview her new music. The guest lineup included fellow “Love & Hip-Hop” stars Rasheeda and Kirk Frost and Jhonni Blaze, as well as entertainment lawyer Navarro Gray, Chief Creative Officer Walid Azami, Redd’s manager Ryan Fionda and the label’s CEO Keishia McLeod.
“What intrigued me most about Karlie is her hustle and versatility,” McLeod said in the press release. “It’s admiring because she truly understands the importance of a diversified skillset; she invests into a well-balanced portfolio, while remaining both humble and hungry. She has already accomplished that of 10 women combined and that tells me Karlie is just getting started! I think she’s just about to step into the most successful decade of her life, and I’m proud to support a strong woman who aims to help others do the same.”
While gearing up for her upcoming album, the Trinidadian artist has been in the studio working with Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer, Sean Garrett; producer, Luke Nasty; and dancehall artists Spice and Blaze.
“If you don’t believe in ‘dreams do come true,’ I’m a living testimony!” Redd wrote in an Instagram post. “I want to spread the love and take it back to my roots! New music, new Karlie.”
Legacy Records and Redd are set to debut her album in 2022.
Along with her new record deal, Redd has been making moves — from her starring role in the tenth season of “Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta” to landing movie and TV roles such as her recurring appearances on Bounce TV’s “Saints & Sinners.”
