As the saying goes, new year, new start, and especially in the case of all the major record companies as it’s that time of year again when piles of CD’s resolute round the bargain bin, when official sites start getting closed down and when we start to never again hear of acts once here. Yep, because the latest victims of the dreaded record label drop have been flying around, and apparently, Shaznay Lewis might just be one of them, due to the dissappointing sales of album Open, which only managed #22 in the album chart last summer, and her October 2004 single You, which went in 32 places lower than debut Never Felt Like This Before, at 46, compared to the number 8 position her previous single achieved.
But she’s not the only one, oh no. Apparently, Kristian Leontiou, Jay Sean, Raghav, Lisa Scott Lee, Sam & Mark, V and The 411 are other possible names that have been rumoured as well.Here are some handy hints to finding out if your fave act has been dropped or not:
1. Check their label’s website, especially artist lists. Check news about the artist to see whether or not any new news has appeared.
2. Do the exact same thing with their official website.
3. Contact labels if you do have any further concerns.
