Jive Records Drops Idol Favorite David Archuleta

Singer David Archuleta won over several fans on season 7 of American Idol, finishing up in the runner-up position with winner David Cook.

He later signed with Jive records to release his self-titled debut album in 2008, which moved nearly a million units and has been certified platinum. His follow-up sophomore effort, 2010’s “The Other Side of Down, failed to gain traction at radio or on the charts, and has sold 67,000 copies as of February 18, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Recently Twitter went a blaze with rumors that the “Crush” hitmaker had been dropped by Jive Records, and now a Jive spokesperson confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that “David was released from our roster.”

We wish David the best!
