Solange Gets Dropped from Record Label

Sad day for the Knowles family, Solange was dropped from Interscope/Geffen Records. There were a couple of rumors going around about this back in April but of course the Knowles camp shut that down quick. We’re pretty sure it’s hard for them to have a success story and an EPIC FAIL in the same household.

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.

Here’s what they had to say: “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.”

Getting drop is probably why Solange really cut her hair off. They say some women cut there hair when they are going through negative situations. Well, Solange… it looks like this was the reason for your rebirth.

    Well she did tweet last night or more like early this morning, that “she decided” to leave Interscope. I kinda felt like it was more like a Drop move. I think she will do good on an independent label instead of a label that was probably trying to change her image.

  • leah

    everybody cant be a beyonce

  • Bossip is Lame!

    Solange needs to pursue another career separate from what Beyonce is doing. In music she will always be compared to her more successful more beautiful sister. She has the personality to pull off a successful reality or comedy show. She should pursue that or a college degree in business. But, she needs to get out of the niche her sister has conquered. She’ll always look like a knockoff Beyonce, just like Marlon looks like a knockoff Michael. Best wishes to her tho’.
