Katy Perry has joined forces with her own record label, Capitol Records, to launch Metamorphosis Music, an imprint the pop star turned mogul will helm.
Perry also took to social media to ecstatically make the announcement, while also revealing singer-songwriter Ferras Alqaisi as her first signed artist.
Singing the newly signed crooner's praises on Twitter, declaring him "incredibly talented & soulful," Perry promoted his self-titled EP that she produced.
It includes their duet, "Legends Never Die" (below):
Ferras took to Instagram to do tout the deal as well, writing, "The secret is out! I've signed to my dear friend @katyperry's new record label Metamorphosis Music."
"Today is the day my EP is finally out and I'm so happy I get to share it. Let me know what u think!!! Also, catch me opening up for Katy on #ThePrismaticWorldTour starting June 22!"
If you recognize the name, it's because he was actuaally discovered by Limp Bizkit lead singer Fred Durst while he was still studying at Berklee College of Music.
Ferras was subsequently signed to Capitol Records in 2007. That led to his chance meeting with Perry, their long friendship and new promising partnership.
He also penned the minor-hit, one-time American Idol "exit" song "Hollywood's Not America" and was romantically linked to Idol star Adam Lambert.
"Ferras is a man with a message, a unique lyrical way of communicating his perspective on life that makes you feel connected to every note when you listen," Katy said.
"I believe he is going to be an important artist to watch unfold."
Here's wishing them both the best in this new team effort!
