David Archuleta Dropped from Jive Records
David Archuleta has been dropped from his record label.
The “American Idol” Season 7 runner-up was released from Jive Records after 3 years, according to a short statement released by the label that reads “David was released from our roster.”
Archuleta was only 16 years old when he lost “Idol” to David Cook, but still won over lots of fans and went on to release his first debut album in 2008. His self-titled debut ended up moving nearly a million units and has since been certified platinum.
The 20-year-old’s latest album, The Other Side of Down (released in 2010) failed to gain traction at radio or on the charts, and has thusfar sold only about 63,000 copies.
