Rihanna - Rihanna leaves Def Jam for Roc Nation

Rihanna is preparing to release her next album with Roc Nation after leaving Def Jam.

The 'Diamonds' singer, who was already being managed by Jay Z's record label, has now inked a deal and her profile on Roc Nation's website has been updated, which lists her as one of their big name acts.

Rihanna first signed her record deal with Def Jam in 2005, when she was just 17, and claims then-label-president Jay Z wouldn't let her out of his office until she put pen to paper.

Since then, she has released all seven of her chart conquering albums with the label, including 2011's 'Unapologetic', despite Jay Z leaving his role to start up Roc Nation in 2009.

Rihanna had already parted ways with her former manager Marc Jordan and signed with Jay's Roc Nation management team in 2010 but it now appears she is also signed to the label.

She joins the likes of Calvin Harris, DJ Mustard, J. Cole, Jay Electronica, Rita Ora and Jay Z himself.

Meanwhile, the Def Jam website now lists Rihanna under its ''Legacy'' section, along with stars like Amerie, Ashanti, and Public Enemy.

The 26-year-old star will release her next album ''soon'' and will be spending more time in the studio than taking 'selfies' after her Instagram account was suspended for posting half-naked photographs.
