You can't fire her! She quits!
Last week there were rumors Kelly Rowland had been dropped from her record label Universal Republic [click here if you missed that].
While Kelly and Universal have parted ways, dropped is not quite the right word to use...
From Always A List
Apparently, when the 33-year-old vocalist signed on to be a judge for the third season of “The X-Factor,” her team asked the label to release a new single to capitalize off the eight million viewers the show averaged each week. The label chose not to capitalize off of Rowland’s involvement on the show and the singer asked to be released from her contact.
Universal Republic quietly allowed Rowland to become a free agent in December 2013. Unbeknownst to fans, the singer has already been recording new tracks for a fifth studio album and has been entertaining new offers from record companies interested in signing her.
