Let’s be honest; even with a major label, they stuffed up numerous eras BIG time. Why do we think it’s a shame. She will be up for grabs because of her history (bops) but this time it’s in her negotiation court. She will most likely want more creative control and owning her masters. This is brilliant if you ask me.
Major labels are not what they were 10/15/20 or more years ago. They seem lost. I think they have the most major part to blame for why record sales are dismal as it is for once hot artist that use to sell (like MC, Jlo, etc).
I could not be happier for her. She had more control over her debut and sophomore and look how that turned out. It was from Fantasy Ride that label wanted tighter control because they knew what she was capable off. And for they took over...the rest is history.
