Sony Music’s Chris Brown Dilemma
Reportedly, Sony Music will begin dissolving Jive Records this summer, but there’s allegedly one problem…what to do with Chris Brown. According to Page Six, the decision on where Jive’s biggest names will end up has already been made (with Usher, Ciara and Outkast joining the fold of Epic Records, and Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears and Pink joining the artist roster of RCA), but the labels are anything but eager to take on Breezy. A source told Page Six:
“Neither [Epic or RCA] really wants to take him on. He makes great music, but he has personal baggage. He’s in a long-term contract, but contracts are made to be broken.”
I assume Breezy’s “personal baggage” far outweighs the certified Gold status of his latest album. Apparently, two-and-a-half years after the Rihanna beat down incident, it still sucks being Chris.
