Meet Lil Wayne’s New Artist Porcelain Black

Porcelain Black

YMCMB is ready to rock your world. Lil Wayne introduced his newest discovery Porcelain Black during the first stop on his “I Am Music II” tour in Providence, Rhode Island, this week. Part Cruella de Vil, part Lady Gaga, the 25-year-old glam rocker took the stage before her mentor and had concertgoers asking, “Who’s that chick?”

Here’s what we know. Porcelain, born Alaina Beaton, grew up in Detroit and previously recorded under the name Porcelain and the Tramps. Formerly signed to Virgin Records, she is now working with hitmaker RedOne on her Universal Republic debut. Her first single, “This Is What Rock N Roll Looks Like,” features Wayne and is slated to hit iTunes on March 29. She also appears in Swizz Beatz’ upcoming video for “Rock ‘N’ Roll” alongside Weezy, Lenny Kravitz, and Travis Barker.

Get a taste of Porcelain’s music below and let us know what you think.

    Porcelain is a part Britney Spears and part Marilyn Manson. She will NOT be the new member of the young money crew, and her style is different from hip-hop so don’t worry she won’t take any other’s place. She will make her own because she’s gorgeous.

    Lil’ wayne did backward vocals on her new track but her producer is Red One. Not LIl Wayne. She is not the his new artist guys. Red One already produced 3 songs for her : who’s next, curiosity and this is what rock n roll looks like.

    Looks like a not so attractive amy lee. I’m not sure with all these new artists popping up everywhere especially when they are associated with young money :|

    Porcelain is not a new artist. At all. She’s been doing music since 2003 and she get the most of her fans with her old stuff when she was known as Porcelain and the Tramps. She may be a bitch, she might be gross but damn she is doing it soooo good !

    @Ifeelperfect, THANK YOU! honestly in my school everybody believes she is new and lil wayne’s new “project” ugh…people are so dumb!

  17. maya

    Well my opinion is that she looks a hot mess. Working w| Red One? I hope her music doesn’t sound like Lady GaGa’s b/c if so I’m not gonna like it. From the songs I can’t tell if she has actual vocal skills or if she’s going 2 be a auto tune user (hope not!) I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…

    @maya, Alaina has her own style. She’s beeen making it since 2003. 7-8 years with fans, i’m pretty sure she’ll stick to it even tho she might not be to big in the world where music is purly based on rap, p*ssy pop. She may look part Lady Gaga but she has a completly dif music style.

    Don’t judge on what you see, judge on what you hear. Lady gaga vs Alaina Beaton aka porcelain black. they’re nothing like each other.

    @Dadadada, RedOne produces songs for her, but she is not signed to RedOne’s label (2101 Records), She is singed to Lil Waynes label, which is why they say its Lil Wayne’s artist. RedOne produces for Lady Gaga, but Lady Gaga is not singed to RedOne’s label she is singed to Akon’s label.

    [Reply]

  19. Ha

    She’s not signed to Lil Wayne’s label. She said herself that she was signed to RedOne’s label through Universal after she knocked her deal with Virgin records. He is also her producer. It would be a pity if she was signed to YMCM. Ridiculous actually.

    UAL, This Alaina it’s focking king in the world

    [Reply]

  21. ugh

    Y’all wrong. She is signed to Universal Republic.
    Universal Republic is a record label, owned by Universal Music Group, and operates as a division of Universal Motown Republic Group. Lil Wayne just brought her out to showcase her talent, he didnt “discover” or sign her. Shes been in the business for a while. She is just preparing a new album and needed exposure.
    Zander Bleck, Mohombi and Porcelain Black have all WORKED with RedOne on their upcoming albums.

    @ugh, Thank you SO much for this. Everyone needs to know the true story. I can’t stand people like “Ew she’s gonna replace Shannel but she’s just a white version of her” or “Why has she signed to Young Money, just because her name is Porcelain BLACK doensn’t mean she is black” etc.

    was she signed before or after he got out of prison?
    this chick looks like the dirty girlfriend of one of his cell mates.

    Madeline Reply:

    @jeremydante, for the 1000th time, Universal Republic signed her, not Lil Wayne ! All these informations about Porcelain Black as Lil Wayne’s “new artist”, “discovery”, “new YM/CM” are WRONG.

    Alaina is in no way TRASHY. She’s amazing and has her own style. She’s 100% real and her music is to die for. Listen to all her shit. It’s all her and she wrote it. Love her to deathh.

  33. Emily

    Madeline probably knows this because she has been following Alaina? Just like any one else who has and is way excited for her to finally get her stuff out, you should probably get your stuff straight before you bitch.

    [Reply]

  34. Madeline

    Thank you Emilie.
    @Dseg, I’ve been following Alaina for 4 years now. She is not Lil Wayne’s discovery because she’s been doing music since 2003 (and by herself)

    She’s not signed to Lil Wayne’s label because Universal Republic and Red One’s label signed her. It’s written on her myspace page and on Universal Repubilc website. People thought she was the new YMCM artist because she’s touring with Lil Wayne.

  40. chelsey

    omg!!! i think i listened to “this is what rock n roll looks like” about a HUNDRED times! she’s unique but cooler than lady gaga, and she’s got her own crazy voice and can sing like a MOFO! i loveeeee her!!!! but the hair is what does it for me! that bold statement will put her on the map for SURE! she is a marketing PHENOMENON!!! way to go alaina aka porcelain black! work that shit girl! ur the baddest chick in music right now in my personal opinion!

    [Reply]

  41. HOWL

    This girl has her own style. It’s grungy, dirty rock and she pulls it off well. She’s got a tight image and she may scare/intimidate/gross some people out but she’s got the whole DGAF/DIY punk ethic going for her. Anyone who really understands rock will love her attitude, and I see why Lil Wayne grabbed her. People these days like music to be caged and tamed. I say unleash the beast! We need a REAL firestarter.

    I was at Lil wayne’s concert last night in miami and when i walked in i felt as if i had walked into a nightmare. I even turned to my friend and asked her if we were at the wrong concert, this girl was absolutely terrible and all she did was screech into the microphone it was ear-piercing ! I pray to God she doesn’t get signed to young money!

    [Reply]

  44. sylvia

    Lil Wayne did not discover her…not one bit….courtney love technically discovered her if you want to say what celebrity “found her”. However she became big through myspace and had a really big fan base for years from that. I repeat lil wayne did not discover her at all…..

    [Reply]

  45. i love the old porcelain

    THIS SHIT SUCKS. i hate how alaina had to team up with “Lil Wayne” in order to get her music out there. She was holding her own and making amazing music to begin with, now she is riding the coattails of this fucking gremlin to get to stardom. WTH ALAINA??!! She’s even changed the sound of her music. where did my old porcelain and the tramps go???
