Janet Jackson splits with record label

Post by Baz on Tue Sep 23, 2008 3:21 am







Janet Jackson has split with her record label, parting ways because she reportedly felt the label did not support her last album enough.

According to the album’s producer Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins, the deal that Jackson signed with Island/Def Jam in 2007 came to an end after she felt the her record ‘Discipline’, wasn't pushed, a sentiment that Jerkins shares:

“I felt like it wasn't pushed correctly” he said in an interview with rap-up.com. “She just didn't get her just-do as an artist of that magnitude."

Meanwhile, Jerkins also said that he hopes to return to Jackson’s glory days by making an album with fellow super-producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, and that a “classic Janet record” is on the cards.

From what I heard of it it was crap. No wonder it didn't do well.

She should have promoted it better by flashing her boobs again.

Janet Jackson has spoken out about her split with record label Island Def Jam, the imprint responsible for the release of this year’s ‘Discipline’.

The singer has revealed that it was her choice to split with the label after she became frustrated with their work behind the record, resulting in what Jackson considers disappointing sales.

In a statement released to the press, Jackson’s rep says:

“At her request, the record label has agreed to dissolve their working relationship with the popular artist. Now, more than 20 years after the release of her iconic album, ’Control’, Janet will have autonomy over her career, without the restrictions of a label system.”

The statement also says that Jackson's new-found freedom is likely to have a positive effect on her career.

"Always known to break new ground and set trends, Janet's departure from Island makes her one of the first superstar artists to have the individual freedom to promote their work through a variety of avenues such as iTunes, mobile carriers and other diverse and innovative channels."

‘Discipline’ was the only album Jackson released via Island Def Jam.
