CeeLo Green has signed a new co-management deal with The Voice Season 2 runner-up Juliet Simms ahead of the singer’s upcoming new single and album.

On Thursday it was confirmed that CeeLo Green and his management team at Primary Wave Music will co-manage former “Team CeeLo” artist Juliet Simms. Since her second place finish last season on The Voice, Simms has been busy writing and recording new music and touring the world after signing with Republic Records to release her new single, “Wild Child,” available on iTunes Decemeber 11.

“Juliet has that electricity in her voice, originality, likability and real brand-ability,” CeeLo Green recently explained. “As I told her from the beginning, I’m dedicated to building her career and with the help of Primary Wave’s resources, I’m confident that she’ll be the girl to watch in 2013.”

The new management deal solidifies CeeLo’s true belief in the artists he coaches on The Voice. In the official press release, it was revealed that CeeLo specifically recognizes Juliet’s rock star ability to potentially become The Voice’s big breakout star.

As a favorite in Season 2 of The Voice, Juliet’s unapologetic growl, edgy-style and powerful pipes left a lasting impression on America, especially during her renditions of James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World” and The Police’s “Roxanne,” both of which peaked at #1 on the iTunes Rock Chart.

    CeeLo gives me back my faith that there r still good people in this world. I am jumping up & down with joy that he has aligned himself with THE breakout artist of 2013. Love both of you as people and musicians. I wish both of you every success.

    As of September 2013, where is Simms picture on the Republic Records artist roster? It’s not there. She also has no profile page on Primal Wave Management’s artist’s page either! Did they both drop her or what? Also, where is the new album she’s been promising? @Kcparrot, Cee Lo may have “aligned” himself with Simms but it looks like he got away just as fast! Primal Wave is a place for artists who can sell and make money. Green saw the writing on the wall (like the 5 other labels before him).
