Solange Knowles ‘dumped’ by record labelApril 9th, 2009 - 5:45 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 9 (ANI): Singer Solange Knowles has reportedly been dumped by her record label, following the poor sales of her latest album.
The label bosses have refused to renew the contract of the 22-year-old sister of Beyonce Knowles.
Solange’s second album, released last August, has only sold around 138,000 copies to date.
According to BlackVoices.com, following the poor performance of the disc, label executives decided to end the relationship.
“Geffen did a one-off deal with MusicWorld Entertainment for Solange and wasn’t interested in doing a new contract with her,” the Daily Express quoted a source as saying.
“People at the label really liked working with her because… she was a constant professional. There were challenges dealing with her camp, but Solange was great to work with.
“In the end, the CD didn’t sell despite Solange’s countless high profile appearances,” the source added. (ANI)
