New Delhi, Sep 23 (ANI): Popstar Janet Jackson has parted ways with label Island Def Jam, just after 14 months of working together.
After years of working with Virgin label, Jackson had decided to work with Island and signed a deal with the label in 2007.
The Rhythm Nation hitmaker released her label debut, Discipline earlier this year, but when the album sales failed to meet her expectations she expressed her dissatisfaction with the label, reports China Daily.
The popstar stated that the label did not promote her album well and “stopped all promotion whatsoever on the album”.
Earlier this month, she hinted about potentially severing ties with the label to Billboard, stating, “I can”t say if we”ll be working with them in the future. I don”t know what the future holds between the two of us.”
The label agreed to dissolve its relationship with the artist at her request and the two separated amicably, confirms Jacksons publicist. (ANI)
