Weiss arrives at the Universal Music Group-owned labels from RCA/JIVE Label Group, where, as chairman and CEO, he oversaw a roster that includes Justin Timberlake, Jamie Foxx,Kelly ClarksonBritney Spears,Kings of Leon, and Jennifer Hudson.

I am not pre-judging, positive or negative, the industry needs help and I don’t care where or whom it comes from. My question is what happen to Chris Lightly? I’ve been hearing rumors for months now he was going to step up to head Def Jam…hmm i’m expecting to hear some noise from him soon.
