Pop star Kelly Rowland has confirmed that she has split from Columbia records. While reports suggest that Rowland was dropped by her record label, she insists that it was a mutual decision.
"Because Columbia Records has been my home base as an artist for more than a decade, the decision to move out on my own required a lot of soul-searching,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying. "As a solo artist, I felt the need to explore new directions, new challenges, and new freedoms outside my comfort zone and my friends and family at Columbia have been incredibly understanding about my evolution,” she added.
Columbia record label bosses also appreciated Kelly for her talent. "It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Kelly,” Columbia record label Group boss Rob Stringer said.
