It’s official – L.A. Reid has stepped down from his chairman position at Island Def Jam.
This will give him time to concentrate on his role as a judge on X Factor.
Mariah Carey will apparently be leaving Def Jam to join L.A. at Sony in 2012.
Here’s his letter to staff at Island Def Jam:
“To my Island Def Jam family: After much consideration, I have decided to leave my position as Chairman of the Island Def Jam Music Group.
“I have always thrived on growth and the next great challenge, and I look forward with much enthusiasm to what the future holds.
“I am extremely proud of our beautiful roster and all we have accomplished in my seven years with IDJ. We continue to have incredible success together with today’s most phenomenal superstars – Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey, Kanye West, Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Rick Ross, The Killers, The-Dream, Chrisette Michele, Jeezy and Ludacris to name a few.
“I want to thank all of you for your amazing contributions.
“With Warm Regards -
