label mate

(redirected from label mates)

label mate

Someone who is a recording artist with the same studio label (as another person). I was a little worried to become label mates with a such a controversial artist, but the extra publicity has actually helped spur sales of our albums as well. The two were label mates for nearly 15 years before becoming a couple.
