Update: Solange Says “I’m Here to Stay B*tches”

Solo wants you to know that her faux artsy swag was not dropped from Geffen and Kelly doesn’t have squat to do with it:

Solange tweets: “stooopiddd iddddiots” rumor control for the day:) I was NOT released from Geffen/Interscope… now back to your regular scheduled program:)

Peep the sordid details of Solange getting the axe, which may have close ties with Kelly Rowland’s exit from Columbia:

After intense promotion of her Geffen debut “Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams,” Solange Knowles has reportedly lost her deal with Geffen for a second album! Seen at seemingly every event under-the-sun since August, including both Fashion Rocks and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York, Solange Knowles has been busy doing all she can to promote what ended up being her biggest album in terms of attention from mainstream media.

Unfortunately for the Lil Wayne dubbed “Solo,” Geffen Records says it is no longer interested in working with her business-wise due to abysmal sales of her debut which has sold nearly 139,000 copies since its release last August ! While news of Solange’s fate at Geffen is concerning, the way in which her management allegedly tried prevent the split from becoming major news is astonishing.

According to BV Buzz, Destiny’s Child songbird Kelly Rowland was seemingly thrown up as the sacrificial lamb last week when news broke that she had parted ways with Columbia as a solo artist in order to skirt by Solange’s exit from Geffen.

Contrary to early reports, Kelly Rowland and Columbia executive Robert Stringer amicably split due to Rowland’s decision to move forward with her solo career apart from longtime manager Matthew Knowles (Beyonce and Solange’s father/manager). “The decision for Kelly to seek other opportunities for her solo career was agreed upon mutually, and any reports to the contrary are false,” Stringer pointed out in a release last week.

According to a record label source, “Geffen did a one-off deal with Music World Entertainment for Solange and wasn’t interested in doing a new contract with her…. In the end, the CD didn’t sell despite Solange’s countless high profile appearances”.

All this sh*t sounds hella suspect. Everybody’s out there trying to covet as much stacks as possible. To be continued…

    I bought Solo’s CD but if her father is as bad as they say I don’t think I will be purchasing anymore of Beyonce’s CD either. I can’t support his mean spirited ways.

    While i hate to admit it, this girl does have some talent, she is so OVERSHADOWED by beyonce, that she has gotten lost in that shadow. It’s really messed up. but she TRIED so hard to be different, that some people just DON’T get her.

    I never heard the music and wouldn’t buy it but I wonder what her real target demographic was?

    Weren’t all those bases already covered? Is there some new genre of audience for cool, black, female vocalists that I don’t know about?

    We got like 100 of them on the set right now…

  • glok9isvery 'how you doin?'

    Maybe she should have done a duet with Bey to boost sales. That would get her some attention.

  • SweetT

  • Roe ski Love - The checks in the mail

    She should blame this on Tony.

  • Just plain ole Swag-

    @SweetT – EVERYONE who bought that album loves it…I predict it’s going to be a slow mover like Amy Winehouse and by the time people realize it’s good…it will be like 2 years old. (Keyshia Cole’s first CD did the same thing….it took about 2 years for people to warm up to her…while Ciara went platinum out the gate)

    “Maybe she should have done a duet with Bey to boost sales. That would get her some attention.”

    That might have been the way to go.
