R&B superstar Beyonce Knowles might be planning a move to the Def Jam label of boyfriend Shawn Carter, otherwise known as Jay-Z, so that he can help "oversee" her career.
The Irreplaceable singer is currently signed to Sony's Columbia, but with her contract due to expire after her next two albums, Knowles is reportedly looking to make a move to Island Def Jam so she can team up with Jay-Z in a professional capacity.
An industry source said: "Jay Z has been trying to get her to Def Jam for a while. He would love to oversee her career - he kind of does anyway."
But the insider warns that Sony will not let Knowles go without a fight, saying: "Sony has had a bad year, all the hit acts - Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and the American Idol kids - are all on BMG.
"They can't afford to lose Beyonce. They'll probably mortgage the farm to keep her.
"Which means a lot more money for Beyonce - and Jay-Z if they get married."
Sony claims that Knowles and Jay-Z have not yet spoken to them. - Wenn
