Despite the many rumors about Kelly Rowland being dropped from her label at Universal Republic, the truth finally has come out today. The former Destiny’s Child singer actually requested to be released from her contract after frustrations with her label home. Kelly has been a free agent since December of 2013 when her label mishandled the promotion of her recent album Talk A Good Game which has sold only 215,000 copies since it’s release last summer.
Entertainment specialist Jawn Murray was told by a source that Kelly Rowland’s team asked the label to release a new single to capitalize off the eight million viewers the show averaged each week. The label chose not to capitalize off of Rowland’s involvement on the show and the singer asked to be released from her contact. Kelly Rowland is now recording music for her 5th solo album and has been entertaining new offers from record companies interested in signing her.
I knew after all the success Kelly has been doing at coming into her own identity as a music artist that UMG wouldn’t just drop her it had to be more to the story and I’m glad the truth came out. Now we just have to wait to hear the news about Kelly signing a new record deal I just have this feeling something with ROC nation would be involved in Kelly’s near future, I could be wrong but I just have that feeling it would only make sense.
