Chav queen LADY SOVEREIGN was flown out to New York recently week by JAY-Z and the DEF JAM label for a meeting in their Manhattan offices.
The climax of SOVEREIGN's trip was a meeting with JAY-Z and DEF JAM chairman LA REID, joined by USHER and latest DEF JAM sensation TIARRA.
After giving an impromptu performance, Jay-Z was so won over by Sov, that he promised to get her into the studio to start cutting some tracks with MISSY ELLIOTT and THE NEPTUNES as soon as possible. In the meantime LADY SOVEREIGN continues negotiations with DEF JAM subsidiary, JAY-Z's new label LA FAMILIA for her future US releases. SOVEREIGN's first US single is coming out on Chocolate Industries, remixed by Ad Rock from the BEASTIE BOYS.
Back in the U.K., following her recent hit '9-5', SOVEREIGN releases her new BASEMENT JAXX produced single 'HOODIE' on November 7th. Her debut album will follow early next year for Island Records.
