R&B Singer Kelis Released From Jive

R&B singer Kelis has been dropped from her contract with Jive Records. Kelis received major success on hit singles “Milkshake” and “Bossy” but her latest album ‘Kelis Was Here’ lacked in record sales. Kelis was originally signed to Pharrell Williams’ Star Traks, which had a distribution deal in place with Virgin, which was later moved to Arista and through the SonyBMG merger, she ended up with Jive. “It was a case of being in the ever-shrinking world of the record industry and finding herself on a label she wasn’t signed to and without a champion,” says Kelis’ manager, Jeff Rabhan. Kelis is in talks to host a Project Runway-like show on VH1 and is auditioning for numerous TV and film roles.
