Simon Cowell who owns his won record label (Susan Boyle is one of his most famous signings) has finally signed a 21-year-old singer who was not found on a reality television talent show in six-years.

It is believed that Cowell offered singer, writer and producer, Labrinth, a very good deal to join his label, Syco.

Cowell this week handed Labrinth, who also works as a writer and producer, a lucrative deal with his label.

Labrinth, real name Timothy McKenzie, is English.

He co-wrote, produced and appeared on Tempah's hits Pass Out, which reached No.1 in March, and Frisky, which was pipped to the top spot this Sunday by the Cowell-produced Shout For England World Cup single.

After signing the deal, Labrinth said: 'This is a crucial moment in my career, I've always been an ambitious and driven person and Simon has given me a bigger playing field.

'I'm gonna show Uncle Si a whole new world!'

Labrinth also took to his Twitter page yesterday to announce: 'I've just adopted a new uncle!

'Its a pleasure to work with a great mind like Mr simon's let's make a special print in history woooop.'

Labrinth’s first single is expected to be Let The Sunshine, due to be released this summer.

An album will be released shortly after that.
