Entertainment Weekly has posted a report stating that alternative R&B star Kelis has been dropped from Jive Records. Kelis is know for her mega hit “Milkshake.” But her last album didn’t do so well. She made some noise with the single “I’m Bossy” but not enough to sell records. Kelis started out on Pharrell William’s Star Trax lable and then got shuffled about to Jive. “It was a case of being in the ever-shrinking world of the record industry and finding herself on a label she wasn’t signed to and without a champion,” says Kelis’ manager, Jeff Rabhan. “She’s a different kind of artist — very image and style-driven. It’s either something you get or you don’t.”
Kelis is preparing to release an indie album with Cee-lo sometime in 2008.
