As the company continues to suffer a number of reported losses, it would appear Blackground Records have found themselves fresh trouble.
This time? In Brattleboro born belter JoJo.
Full story below…
After the music group allegedly refused to release her from her agreement with them while stifling her progress at the same time, the ‘Andre’ belle has taken legal action against Da Family and Blackground this month.
For, in arguing that New York State law prevents minors from sign contracts that last seven or more years, the star points out that since she inked her deal with them aged 14, her contract with them officially ended in 2011.
Indeed, if successful, JoJo will prove that the label have held her against her will for the last two years- seeing as the recording contract was signed in 2004 and-in theory- was supposed to end in the year she turned 21.
Here’s to JoJo winning this case, and freeing herself from a situation that’s held her back for far too long.
For, if the digital response scored by her material is anything to go by, she really is a global star waiting to happen and will no doubt reach her full potential when backed by a label whose affairs are far more….organised.
