R&B singer Amerie reportedly has been dropped by her record label Columbia Records after her name was removed from the label's artists list.
R&B Singer Amerie reportedly has split up with her label Columbia Records. The news surfaces after the singer's name has been removed from the label's artists roster.
The rumors of Amerie's break up with her label has been going since late 2007 and now after her name is out of Columbia's list, the news seems to be right. Moreover, reports claim that the R&B crooner's disputes with her label started because her third album "Because I Love It" was never officially released for the U.S. market, despite having been critically acclaimed and had a success in Europe.
The album, which supposed to be released in 2006, still has its official U.S. release date being halted until now. It only had a limited release at Wal-Mart stores but the import CD's can be purchased in some f.y.e. stores in the U.S. In contrary, the album was released in U.K. on May 14, 2007 and received a warm welcome there peaking at #17 on U.K. Albums chart.
Regarding her future, it is rumored that Amerie could end up signing for Island Def Jam Records. A source confirms the news to ThatGrapeJuice.com claiming that she is currently in talks with Def Jam.
