Rumors were swirling last week that [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ciara[/lastfm] was released from Jive Records due to poor album sales. However, according to Ciara, it seems to be the other way around.

Ciara took to her Facebook page to respond to those rumors…

This week the net has been a buzz of the rumor that I have been dropped from my label. At this point that rumor is false.. It is true that I have asked and I pray that my label will release me. I have had some great times and success with my label, but sometimes like all great things, its at that point where I feel we don’t share the same views on who I am as a artist. The past two albums have been very frustrating for me. At times there were songs I chose to lead a project and I was ignored! This project, I even tried to get Gimmie Dat started. I spent tens of thousands of my own money only to hear the radio PDs tell me my label didn’t want the song played. I even spent more than one hundred thousand dollars out of my pocket on the video to bring my vision to it and still no label support. I do understand that some labels are not financially supporting their artists and I have become one of them. You, my fans, know that I strive to do my best to deliver to my you the best songs and creative vision I possibly can. I’m dedicated to my music,performance and to my fans! I’ve tried to be a team player with the label only to have compromised what I truly believed.. And was not given the right opportunity to promote and inform my fans of the release of this album..I have so much of me as a artist I still want to give to the world and my fans. A release would allow me to go be creative with people who care and understand me as a artist. In a short time, I will be able to bring to you a new music energy and a visual excitement! Thank you so much for standing by me through the good, bad, and the confusion. I love you all.

Love Ciara

    In this new age of technology, she could spend half of the money and promote and produce herself without a label. More artist need to cut the labels out of their production because they are unneeded in most cases. The labels were used back in the day to gain exposure, now you can get the same exposure marketing yourself on the internet. If your good you will go viral.

    As a former DJ I saw what the industry forces down our throats we are told months before hand what the top songs will most likely be for a given time period, that happens because of money not talent. Most labels want their ROI (Return On Investment) then they are on to the next thing, which is why we have a revolving door of artist instead of Artist like Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder who’s music could stand the test of time.

    Give it up. You’re music isn’t that creative anyway.
