MIMAA signs to Island Def Jam

MIMAA: Island/Def Jam, 2022

In one of our biggest signings to date, French artist MIMMA joins one of UMG’s most iconic labels: Island/Def Jam. Back in 2020 MIMAA was selected to take part in Spinnup Lab, an incubation program run in collaboration with UMG France. During the program MIMAA worked closely with experts from across the business to develop her unique Latino/Gypsy-culture inspired sound and style. It was her firey flamenco track ‘Reina Latina’ which sparked the interest of Island/Def Jam A&Rs, and the rest, as they say, is history.


In a recent Instagram post MIMAA said “I am so excited to finally announce that I have joined the Universal Music France family in the Island Def Jam team. I am so so so happy! Only a year ago I was doing my very first gig and today, the crazy adventure continues and it’s only getting crazier! Thank you to all my team at Island Def Jam for the trust and energy you have given me to take my releases to the next level.

With the support of a label like Island/DefJam the sky is the limit for this young artist. Check out MIMAA’s latest release, ‘Bailarina’ on our Spinnup signed playlist on Spotify.
