Kelly Rowland Released From Label, J-Hud Announces New Album Date
|Any news is good news.|
Greetings everyone! So its being revealed that Kelly Rowland asked to be dropped from Universal Republic Records. It was being reported originally that the singer was dropped. Kelly felt that her label was not supporting her properly. Isn't that usually the case when it comes to R&B acts anyway? I do however think Kelly got a pretty big push. She had multiple singles released but her album only sold 215,000 copies. That's pretty normal when it comes to R&B acts though, that number anyway. By no means is the number great but its what we've come to expect. Anyway its also being reported that Kelly has been unhappy with her label since December. She wanted her label to release a single during her stint on X Factor but they denied. Universal Republic probably felt like there was no point in releasing anymore singles since they had already released a hand full of singles. Then again I'm not sure why they just didn't go ahead and release another single. Her singles from her Talk A Good Game did moderately well. After all Kisses Down Low was certified gold. Jennifer Hudson will release her new album on May 27. The album's second single, which has yet to be announced is produced by Timbaland. I'm not sure how I feel about J-Hud singing over Timbaland beats. Timbaland's beats are usually very busy. I prefer J-Hud when she is singing songs produced by R. Kelly like Where You At? but that's just me.
