If you’ve been watching The Voice this season, you might recognize a new face that’s been added to the lineup.

It’s pop star Christina Milian, who is holding down the fort as the new social media correspondent for the hit singing competition show!

She stopped by the AMP Radio studios this morning not only to talk shop with her co-hort Carson, but she also shared exciting news about her new record deal with Lil Wayne’s Young Money label!

It’s been widely-rumored that Christina was joining the Young Money crew, but she confirmed the breaking news herself while chatting today with Carson:

[pullquote quote=”I’ve signed with Young Money. We had a big party, a big YMCMB party and Drake was performing and we were all up on the stage and Wayne got up there and he announced it himself.” credit=”Christina Milian”]

I’m going to be…Young Money! Yeah, I’ve signed with Young Money. It was pretty awesome this weekend. We had a big party, a big YMCMB party and Drake was performing and we were all up on the stage and [Lil] Wayne got up there and he announced it himself. And so I was kind of surprised and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, this is awesome!’

Christina revealed to Carson that she was already about halfway done with her new album before the Young Money deal came through and now Lil Wayne and his crew will help her finish it.

She also hinted that there might be some big name features on the album, but she couldn’t say much more than that!

On a more serious note, Christina told Carson she was heavily influenced by Whitney Houston and she shared her thoughts about her unexpected passing:

May she rest in peace. There’s so much inspiration that came from an artist like her. I grew up in the 80s, my sister, her middle name is Danielle Whitney. My mom, she loved Whitney Houston, so we watched a lot of her growing up and it’s really unfortunate and unbelievably surprising like how it just happened before the Grammys, but I send my heart out to her daughter. Same thing to Bobby and their whole family. I can’t imagine how they feel right now.

But then it was back to business. To hear the duo break down last night’s episode of The Voice , check out the audio clip below!
