UPDATE: Solange’s dad Mathew Knowles is putting the brakes on the rumor that his daughter was dropped from her label. Knowles told mediatakeout that the recent rumors of Solange being dropped are completely false.
Knowles states, “Our joint venture with Music World and Interscope/Geffen/A&M is very much in place for Solange. We are currently experiencing success at video outlets and radio with the current single T.O.N.Y co-written by Ceelo of Knarls Barkly and Solange. Ceelo and Kid Cudi also appear in the video”.
Knowles adds, “it’s very disappointing in recent days the amount of false statements in the marketplace from Solange being drop to me [being] accused of being Kelly Rowland’s father”.
Solange took to her twitter with over 68,000 followers to confirm that;
Ren and Stimpy “you stooppid idioots part 19″ lol. Today, April 7, 09 I am still on Music World/Geffen/ Interscope records…
Another one of Mathew Knowles’ daughters is without a record label. Solange has been dropped from her record label Geffen Records. It happened right around the time that Kelly Rowland was dropped from her record label Columbia. Supposedly, Kelly’s situation got all the attention to take away from Solange being dropped.
Here’s what sources at Geffen told Black Voices.
“Geffen did a one-off deal with Music World Entertainment for Solange and wasn’t interested in doing a new contract with her. People at the label really liked working with her because other than her infamous news outburst in Las Vegas, she was a constant professional. There were challenges dealing with her camp, but Solange was great to work with. In the end, the CD didn’t sell despite Solange’s countless high profile appearances.”
We hope this doesn’t send her back to the Sizzurp!!
