Justin Timberlake has signed the first artist to his new record label.

Esmee Denters, whose covers of Timberlake and Beyonce songs have garnered millions of viewers on YouTube, has reportedly signed a deal with Tenman Records.

The female vocalist can be seen on YouTube performing Timberlake‘s song, ‘What Goes Around’, accompanied by the pop star on piano. Timberlake remarks at the end of the song, “She sings my song better than me.”

Denters is expected to support Timberlake on his upcoming European tour, reports Billboard.

Tenman president Ken Kosimar said: “Esmee is a remarkable talent with a story that anyone with a dream can relate to–it is no wonder she has such an enthusiastic following already.”
