Lauryn Hill confirmed in New Jersey federal court she had landed a $1 million record deal.
"Yes, I have recently entered into an agreement with Sony Worldwide Entertainment, to launch a new label, on which my new music will be released," Hill said. "And yes, I am working on new music."
Hill owes Uncle Sam $504,000 out of a total liability of $554,000. She pleaded guilty last summer to three counts of misdemeanor tax evasion.
Hill's sentencing was delayed another two weeks. Her attorney told the Star-Ledger a loan was in the works that would pay off the tab.
