Reid then signed 'Papi' singer to a long-term contract with Epic in 2016 under his reign as chairman and CEO of the Sony-owned label. Reid exited Epic a year later following an accusation of sexual harassment by a former employee.
And now The 'Second Act' star made the move to Hitco, which the 62 years old set up last year after leaving Epic, although her Spanish music will remain on Sony Music Latin.
