KELLY ROWLAND KICKED OFF FROM SONY

April 1, 2009

Love muffins, R&B singer and Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland and her label for more than a decade, Columbia Records, have decided to go their separate ways. Rowland will maintain her role as part of the Destiny’s Child catalogue, but will not be represented by the label as a solo artist.

“Because Columbia Records has been my home base as an artist for more than a decade, the decision to move out on my own required a lot of soul-searching,” Rowland said in a statement. “As a solo artist, I felt the need to explore new directions, new challenges, and new freedoms outside my comfort zone and my friends and family at Columbia have been incredibly understanding about my evolution.”

Rob Stringer, CEO, Columbia/Epic Label Music Group maintains that the split was mutual, and that, “any reports to the contrary are false.” Kelly’s 2007 release, Ms. Kelly sold 219,000 copies in the U.S.

So in other words Sony dropped her for not selling any albums. And paid her to keep quiet.  The first and the second where both flops. We all no that in a group there can only be one diva. And that is Beyonce.
