When news initially hit the wire of her split from the Sony imprint, the sense was that the ‘2On’ singer had been dropped.
Well, according to her career shepherd Mike Nazzaro, it was Nashe who requested the dissolving of the deal.
He told Rolling Stone:
“We initiated for her to be released. It was a positive split for her. It’s giving her back creative control. [The exit] took a little while to figure out, but has been final for a month or so.”
Despite the starlet having gone on record to express frustrations with her former label home, Nazzaro was sure to quell any suggestions of tension.
“[The parting has] been a respectful separation on both sides. Her relationship with RCA was a long-term relationship, but they needed space. It was time to part ways.”
As for what’s on the horizon? A new deal it seems. He concluded:
“She’s excited for this next step in her career. We’re trying to decide now, if we want new partners, who the next ones will be.”
There’s a few interpretations of this from our end.
The first is that this holistically functions as a “hey, she’s a free agent…holla!” and is possibly functioning as a bargaining tool in realtime negotiations.
Then there’s the more surface take, which would see this literally be what it is on the tin: an explanation of what went down and what’s to come.
Either way of play, it’s a good look and highlights that “something” is happening. Smart, as she ought to strike while the iron still has heat.
