Ester Dean Inks Deal With Roc Nation / by

This woman has brought you hit after hit, year after year from artists like Rihanna, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj. Now she's officially ready to jump start her own music career. Ester Dean has inked a management deal with Roc Nation. She joins the likes of J. Cole, Rihanna, Willow Smith and others.

Who can forget about her hit in 2009 with Chris Brown and their track "Drop It Low"? It was a banger!! She will also be lending her voice to the animated film, Ice Age: Continental Drift. 2012 is looking to be her year.

People are sleep on Ester. I love all of her music. Everything from her writing to her singing. I jam to "Take You To Rio" and "Give Me A Reason". I'm curious to see how the music industry will treat her this year.
