RCA Music Group has got its eye on several big stars to expand its roster, including Chris Brown, Justin Timberlake, R.Kelly and Britney Spears.

In a recent interview with Billboard, CEO Peter Edge explained that while the roster was still a work in progress, he had his eye on some of the biggest names on the scene.

He said: "We are still working on our newly combined roster. But when we get done, it will have about 70-80 acts, which is a good, manageable number. It will include a lot of superstars like Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, R. Kelly, Ke$ha, Daughtry, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown and Justin Timberlake."

While there are a few pop acts and rock acts listed, Edge explains that RCA wants to expand into hip-hop too.

"We are market leaders in R&B and we want to up the ante on hip-hop. We just hired J Grand, who is one of the key players at Asylum. He will be working to bring more hip-hop here," he explained. "We have Bryan Leach, who signed Pitbull and is working on other plays. So there is a definite plan to expand our dominance in R&B and grow hip-hop. A few significant signings in hip-hop will round out what we are doing in the urban area."

Will RCA be a serious force to be reckoned with?
