We are saddened to report Solange and her record label Interscope/Geffen/A&M has parted ways. According to BV Buzz, Solange and her label has decided to part ways. Check out the details below.
“BV Buzz can officially report that Solange Knowles is no longer signed to Interscope/Geffen Records. BV Buzz’s previous story, back in April, caused a firestorm of backlash from both Solange and her father/manager, Mathew Knowles.
At the time, Knowles sent over this unedited statement: “Our joint venture with Music World and Interscope/Geffen/A&M is very much in placed for Solange. It’s very disappointing in recent days the amount of false statements in the marketplace from Solange being drop to me accused of being Kelly Rowland’s father.”
Additionally, Solange took to Twitter to blast this columnist by writing: “Ren and Stimpy “you stooppid idioots part 19″ lol. Today, April 7, 09 I am still on Music World/Geffen/ Interscope records…” Denials aside, BV Buzz has learned that the label parted ways with Solange around May.
“They just waited for the buzz to die down and quietly ended their relationship with her,” a source close to the label told us. Though Solange has been currently recording new music for her third solo CD, that music is being recorded independently as she has yet to ink a new deal with another label.
BV Buzz reached out to Music World Entertainment for a new comment on this story – though since they lied once, I’m sure they’ll lie again.
“Solange felt it necessary to go with a smaller, independent label that focuses more on the alternative genre, one that reflects her music style and artistry. Solange is working on a new album and the label will be announced shortly. The relationship with Interscope is excellent and the current album, ‘Sol-Angel and the Hadley Street Dreams’ is still being worked through the Music World/ Interscope joint venture with consistent weekly sales.”
Though this is bad news, Solange has nothing to worry about. We are pretty sure if she wants to really drop another album her family can sign her without the help of a label. Also, we are sure a label that gets and respect her as a artist is going to scoop her up.
