Singer Austin Mahone Officially Signed to Chase Universal Republic Record Label

Austin Mahone has officially been signed to a record deal
Well, we told you it was going to happen... and it finally did.

YouTube signing sensation Austin Mahone has officially been signed to a record label.

Chase Universal Republic has signed the 16-year-old singer and you can expect his current singles “11:11” and “Say Something” to be included on his first album.

Mahone took to his twitter account on Tuesday to tell his fans,

“I’m so excited. Are  you ready for some BIG news? - The BIG NEWS is that I'm officially signed to a record label!!!  Chase Universal Republic!!"

Austin and his mother Michele had just recently moved from Texas to Miami Florida in anticipation of a record deal and Austin has been travelling the country performing the last few months.

Austin has played sold out shows in Florida, Chicago, New York, Texas, and elsewhere around the country, done countless radio and television interviews, and spent time in Los Angeles helping to prepare for a career in music.

Austins record deal is reported to be what is called a "360" contract that gives him a percentage of profit from merchandise, album sales, publishing, and licensing fees.

The deal is estimated to put between $3 and $4 million dollars in the singers pocket.

Mahone has already met Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepson, and tons of other celebrities so we all knew it was just a matter of time before he landed a record label deal.

In fact, Austin is technically part of the Bieber family now as both their record labels tier into the Universal Music Group (UMG) company!

Congratulations Austin and Michele! We knew you were getting close and it has been an honor covering your progress on our blog the last year or so.

Austin, stay humble, work hard, be happy, give back, and don’t forget where you came from.

We’ll always remember you and Alex goofing around on YouTube in your bedroom with that look in your eyes before you had any idea that things would work out the way they did.

See you at the top Austin, and great job Michele for keeping the kid on the right path.

  1. ummmm wrong... this is all just a publicity stunt by his management. He actually signed to their label for free and their label has a distribution deal with Universal just like any other Indie label. They made the three to four million dollars up in their heads so that the press would promote the story. Austin hasn't actually signed with anyone other than his managers label and for no money... and that's the truth.

    1. Well Ben Wright not to rain on your hate parade but... Who cares, he's got a few hits and umm people wouldn't like him anymore than they do now. - start lovin :D
