Junior Andre is set to follow in his pop star father’s footsteps and launch a music career after signing with Columbia Records.
The 16-year-old, who is the son of Peter Andre and Katie Price, is described by the label as having ‘immense natural talent’.
The rising star said in a statement: ‘Signing my first ever record deal is a dream come true.
‘I would like to thank everyone who helped me get here, especially the team at Columbia and Rebel Records and all the people who worked with me on this project.
‘I can’t wait to share my music with the world.’
Junior’s Mysterious Girl hitmaker father Peter, 48, proudly said: ‘I signed my first record deal at 16 years old. It was my dream and passion to see Junior sign his first record deal at the same age.
‘I took him to Rebel Records six months ago and Junior and the team have now become a part of the Columbia family.
‘I’m so happy for him. The passion and dedication Junior has put into this project is incredible and we can’t wait for you to hear it.’
Junior shared snaps of himself at the Columbia offices and a picture of himself inking his name on the contract on Instagram on Saturday.
He wrote: ‘Wow.. where do I start. These past 6 months have been hectic. But I’ve loved every single second of it. My dad took me to the studio 6 months ago and got me in the booth at @rebelrecs.
‘Since then I have secretly been working on a MASSIVE project, and not long ago got a call saying @columbiauk want to sign me! I would just like to say thank you to the team @rebelrecs alongside my dad who have helped develop me into an artist.
‘And of course a big shoutout to @sktartist and @marcellonoego who are very talented and have been working with me on this project since the start.
Ensuring he gave a nod to his famous mother, he continued ‘Also not forgetting my mum who is always supportive of me. And of course my family and friends.
‘I love everyone who supports me and I am very excited to go on this journey with you all.
‘NEW MUSIC COMING SOON!!’
