ATLANTA, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Cingular Wireless said Tuesday it has added 26 titles from Missy Elliott to its ring-tone library.

"The addition of Missy Elliott, the best-selling female rap artist of all-time, marks the introduction of the largest collection of music content into the Cingular Sounds program," John Burbank, vice president of marketing at Cingular Wireless, said in a news release.

Elliott has a recording contract with Warner Music Group, and Cingular said that the latest agreement between the two companies further strengthens the ties between the two enterprises, even though financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.

"Mobile technology is quickly becoming a dominant medium for content and it is important to us, at Violator, to keep our clients on the forefront of emerging trends," stated Elliott's manager, Mona Scott, president of Violator Management. "Cingular presented a very progressive opportunity for us to partner Missy with an industry leader and we are excited to be in business with them."
