Breaking news from the Hits Daily Double Rumor Mill:
THE SPARKS ARE GONE: Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment has terminated its management relationship with Jordin Sparks. The 19 Recordings label will continue as Jordin record company with its joint venture partner, Jive Records.
That’s all I got at the moment. I’m sure more will be revealed.
Fantasia Barrino, winner of Season 3, was dropped by 19M back in June.
Jordin’s album Jordin Sparks had the lowest 1st week sales numbers of all the Idol winners when it was released last fall, selling 119K her first week, and entering the Billboard 200 at #10.
However, the album spawned 3 successful singles that kept her album sales steady, and after a year, Jordin Sparks is about to go platinum. Her smash hit “No Air”, a duet with Chris Brown, certified double platinum, peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at #3. The first single, “Tattoo” went platinum and peaked at #8. Her current single, at 980K, is about to go platinum.
She got off to a slow start, but in the end, her record sales were decent. I wonder what happened?
