The Thai rapper announced the partnership between her company LLOUD and RCA Records on social media yesterday, NME reported.

The announcement confirmed that new solo music was coming soon and that Lisa will now have full ownership of her recordings.

“I’m super excited to be joining the RCA family and I am confident they are the best team to create a bigger movement in my solo career,” Lisa told Variety.

“Looking forward to showing the world everything we have been preparing.”

RCA Records chief executive officer Peter Edge and chief operating officer John Fleckenstein said they were ‘incredibly proud’ to work with Lisa and LLOUD, saying that she is ‘a multidimensional talent and an irrefutable global force’.
