Chrisette Michele Speaks On Getting Dropped From Label

(TIML NEWS) Chrisette Michele has teased fans for some time about her new album with the single “Strong Black Woman,” but the singer has hit a snag in it’s release.

On Friday (Oct. 27), the singer shared on social media she was dropped from her label. After her journey with Motown Records, the singer landed a deal with Caroline/Capitol Records. As of Saturday (Oct. 28), the singer isn’t featured either website’s artist roster. The label currently houses artists like Migos, Katy Perry and Sam Smith.

“I complete an entire album and my label decides to walk away from me. Capitol records. I was quiet for a few days… I go into the studio and literally poured out my heart and soul and the label decides to walk away from me?” she said. She also pointed out her journey into making the album. Earlier this year, the singer faced backlash for performing at President Donald Trump’s Inaugural Ball. “I went from someone being revered and loved to facing putting out an album in the worst climate of my musical career.”
