“Orange is the new Black” star Jackie Cruz has signed a record deal with music publishing powerhouse BMI.

The Dominican-American actress, who plays Flaca on the hit Netflix prison comedy, has signed with the same company which represents Rihanna and Pink.

She tells OKMagazine, “I’m excited to have my music overseen by BMI. They’re an amazing music family to be part of, as they’ve been the parents to many legends that I look up to.”

Cruz, who is planning to record in both English and Spanish, is no stranger to the music scene. She began her career as part of a girl group managed by will.i.am.

As a solo artist, she found success with her 2010 track “Your Love.”
