Rihanna Is About To Sign A Deal With The "Obama" Of The Music Business!

Rihanna it's not only making moves in the fashion business, she's also leveling up on the music side as well.

(AllHipHop Rumors) It look like Rihanna is about to sign a HUGE deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and she is preparing some new music

Multiple sources say the "Umbrella" singer is leaving her current firm Warner Chappell Music and sign with her longtime publisher Jon Platt.

Jon Platt left Warner to become the Sony subsidiary's Chief Executive Officer earlier this year.

The move could trigger the release of long-awaited new music. And that's not just one, but TWO albums for the past two years - a pop and R&B collection and a dancehall record - one of which will come out when the deal is done.

Jon Platt and other Sony/ATV executives attended Rihanna's Diamond Ball last week, where another of his artists, Pharrell Williams, performed.

He has also long been the favored publisher of Jay-Z and Beyonce, with the rapper hailing him while presenting the executive with an award at a charity gala in Los Angeles, California last year.

"This man has worked his way up from a Denver DJ to be (the) highest-ranking black executive," Jay-Z said. "He's the Obama of the music industry behind some of the biggest hits in the world."

Here's Jon Platt aka the Obama of the music business with Pharrell Williams at Rihanna's Diamond Ball:

I can't speak for Rihanna but most musician’s that reach a level that Rihanna has reached are amazingly busy making money. Shows are the place the cash is. There is no quick need to waste time in the studio. It is very time-consuming creating new music. It is a balancing balancing act. Do my uk assignment for me
