own self-titled EP to her already impressive list of accomplishments.

A true personification of the phrase "triple-threat," Dean possesses an infectious and unique personality that has made her transition from behind the scenes to in front of the camera a natural one.

Signed to Interscope Records and managed by Jay-Z's Roc Nation, Dean is a standout star possessing one of music's most distinctive, versatile voices — that spans from raspy to demure without losing its ultra-emotive tone.

Dean began 2012 with an appearance on the Machine Gun Kelly track "Invincible" and set about making sure that 2012 would be a banner year for her as an artist. While working in the studio with numerous artists, she also recorded her upcoming solo EP. Dean teamed up with fabled production team Swedish House Mafia on the track "Bam Bam," which features her signature vocal style, mixed with a driving rhythm section and one of her trademark hooks.

The studio is not the only place Dean has demonstrated the full extent of her range. Dean voiced the female siren in the smash-hit film "Ice Age: Continental Drift," to which she also lent her writing talents for the title song, "We Are." The Oklahoma-born artist has demonstrated an ability and versatility to craft catchy pop hits since 2009, when her first single, "Drop It Low," featuring Chris Brown, became an instant Billboard Top 40 success. Originally recorded for the LeBron James documentary "More Than a Game," the single showed Dean's undeniable vocal talent and electric personality.

Following hot on the heels of her successful introduction as a vocalist the previous year, 2010 proved that Dean's talents extended far beyond the recording studio when she lit up the charts with her work as a songwriter. Her collaborations with Rihanna ("Rude Boy," "What's My Name?"), Katy Perry ("Firework") and Robin Thicke ("Sex Therapy") all rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard charts, with "Firework" and "What's My Name" having the honors of simultaneously being No. 1 and No. 2. Dean also contributed to albums by Usher, Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown and Monica, netting a total of five Grammy nominations in the process.

Dean's success continued into 2011, when she co-wrote the infectiously upbeat "Super Bass," which appeared on pop sensation Nicki Minaj's album "Pink Friday." The song further solidified Dean's standing as one of the most respected and sought-after songwriters in the business, with "Super Bass" reaching No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Soon after, she appeared on the soundtrack for the film adaptation of the beloved Dr. Seuss story "The Lorax," with the song "Let It Grow." Her foray onto the big screen continued with the animated comedy Rio, in which she sang "Let Me Take You to Rio" and "Take You to Rio." With so many accomplishments already under her belt, and many more to come, Dean is just getting started and looking forward to reaching an even wider audience.
