The Bleeding Love star posted a candid letter online in September (14) describing her depression after parting ways with Sony Records after seven years on the books.

Lewis vowed to continue with her singing career, and she now appears to be set for a major comeback after reportedly signing a lucrative deal with Def Jam Recordings, joining labelmates including Iggy Azalea and Kanye West.

The news has yet to be officially confirmed, but Lewis has hinted at the deal by posting a picture of herself wearing a Def Jam jacket on her page.
