David Archuleta DROPPED FROM JIVE

arthurashe-13


David Archuleta has been dropped by Jive Records, a Jive spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that ‘David was released from our roster.‘ David’s latest album ‘The Other Side of Down’ failed to gain traction at radio or on the charts, where it’s sold just over 63,000 copies. His debut album sold nearly a million copies. Sad, but will surely find a new deal soon!

    FUCK JIVE.
    They did this to Allison Iraheta too.
    Both of whom AREN’T sellouts and have huge careers ahead of themselves.

    I bet all the music labels are FIGHTING to sign David, David is SO talented. He’ll get signed in a second. Jive treated him like Sh*t so I’m glad he’s gone from them. He deserves better <3

    What the motherfucking FUCK?

    Selena sells WAY less than this guy yet she isn’t dropped from Disney..

    Is it some kind of rule that when someone can’t manage selling a decent amount they get dropped? Demi Lovato’s music career is a huge flop and she’s not dropped.

  • Blah.

    My own Personal Opinion, that no one cares about, is that an Artist has to be incredibly good looking to a significant amount of people, or has to be insanely controversial in order to gain a bunch of attention. It doesn’t seem like a Record Label’s promotion, or lack of promotion makes a difference anymore. I personally think that it has to do with the public, but that doesn’t mean that I KNOW anything about it. None of us know as much about the Music Industry as we think that we do, actually.

  • Bubbly-Joe

    Not exactly a fan, but he’s talented. He’ll find a new label soon, I hope.

    What are you talking about?

    David’s first album has done better than Selena’s first, but Selena’s second album sold more in its first week than David’s second album has sold since its release. Demi’s second album debuted at Number 1, while David’s debuted at Number 13, and David was DEMI’s opening Act, not the other way around. If Demi’s Music Career was a “flop”, she would’ve been HIS opening act.

  • wavy

    first of all demis career isnt a huge flop -.-…demi sells way more then 68,000..and 68,000 is a flop..idk wtf you talking about

  • milenator

    hope he get new record label

    but AI has become so irrelavant since I got less interested in the show the show kinda gone down too,
    that kara lady came in, paula left, ellen came in, simon left then kara left, now there just two new judges JLo & the guy from AeroSmith and Randy still there
    and the past winners of the show havent been successful some of the runner-ups were more successful, and before some of the winner’s debut singles debut at #1 on hot 100 but not anymore
    has anyone heard much from Kris Allen or that Lee guy I think not i doubt the Lee guy will be any popular
    and the ratings are going down I bet this show will cancel in 2012 watch perhaps Simon’s X Factor will ‘replace’ AI

    the most relevant winners are Kelly(freakin love her), Carrie, and Jordin

If Demi’s Music Career was a “flop”, she would’ve been HIS opening act.
    ——
    First week sales of albums don’t indicate who is a flop and who isn’t.

    David’s debut album has sold nearly one million, Selena’s debut album has sold half of a million, although Selena’s second album sold more than David’s second album’s in both of the albums’ first week, Selena’s second album hasn’t sold 400,000+ because if it has it would get a certification.

    Even so, Selena’s debut album hasn’t sold nearly 1 million copies.

    Demi’s first album has sold half of a million, Demi’s second album hasn’t sold half a million.

    Being Demi’s opening act for a summer tour doesn’t INDICATE he sells less than her because it’s already an established fact that Demi barely sells, her debut album just got certified Gold after being released for nearly 3 years. That is a huge flop for a Disney star that went on international promotional tours many times to promote both of her albums.

    Demi’s last album was released 2 years ago and it still doesn’t have any certifications.

    How much an album sells during its first week doesn’t indicate how successful it will go on to be or how low it will sell because those factors depend on promotion and fanbase. David’s albums barely sell during their first weeks but go on to sell a lot after that.

    X factor will defniatly replace AI. We have X factor in the UK and it’s huge and 10X better than AI. It also gets the highest ratings out of all the shows. The judge’s fight which makes it more intrstin.

    Congrats to the amazing David Archuleta for kicking the ineffective sorry excuse for a label jive to the curb! He much better off without jive wasting his valuable time, he now free to show his creativeness n the true artist in him! Love you David, best wishes!

    David tweeted, “Decisions.. They are scary things before knowing what could happen after you make them, but I’m excited for what the future holds.” So he probably decided to left Jive.. Just saying.

    See, this is what happens when people keep downloading music illegally, and your label doesn’t support your music! “The Other Side of Down” is an AWESOME album, but David can’t make a living for free! And JIVE never promoted his music or tried to put on the radio, so not alot of people know it exists. And then they fire HIM? Oh my gosh!

    David is soooo incredibly talented, though, and has a very very loyal fanbase. He’ll be fine. I’m sure another label will snatch him up right away.

    Aww that’s cute: “Justin Bieber is the biggest star of this generation.” Teenie pop idols fade *very* quickly into obscurity. We’ll talk in 14 months–you’ll likely giggle in embarrassment that you fell into the teen idol trap that indicates a lack of musical sophistication and inability to set yourself apart as an individual that all the other fangirls fell into. And Biebs will be nothing but a fading blip on the pop music radar. You’ll see.

    That’s so sad! I mean, he’s such a great singer. :(

  • ILuvDavidArchieForever

    What a waste of perfectly good talent! David refused to sing and write about “cheesy love songs” because he hasn’t been in a relationship yet. He just wanted his album to sound more like him, he got dropped because he’s trying to be true to himself! He doesn’t deserve this! The stars who rush into things and are FAKE and who think they’ve experienced it all are the ones who are more successful! That’s life! It just isn’t fair! Please trend #supportArchie guys! Please?! From a very concerned @DavidArchie fan! I’ve met him before and he’s really humble! Such a waste of good talent! Tsk tsk tsk! :(

    There are other labels…and David is too talented to not be snatched up quickly. I “trust the Archuleta.” I’m glad JIVE gave David the opportunity to start his career. There will always be changes in everyone’s lives…David will be find and move on and I know produce more awesome amazing music!

    THIS is what will happen to Bieber too when is ratings are starting to fail.

    :( he’s really really talented and can sing. If record labels are smart he should have a new contract soon.

  • Anonymous

    He deserves the best. I think he is one of the most honest, real singer of our epoch. Jive didn’t promote his last album because he decided to do what he wanted to do in his last album. Honestly, his last one was the best in my opinion. I bet in a couple of days or weeks I will have sign somewhere else. It’s all about searching a great label who do cares about their artists, and who aren’t thinking just about making money.
    This guy rocks !

    American Idol has become more about getting ratings as a tv variety show than it is about actually finding music talent that go on to become successful music artists. Out of so many seasons and so many top 12 amazing singers, there are only a handful who have continued success. Simon Cowell was right to leave American Idol and bring X-Factor to the US. X-Factor winners in the UK have gone on to great success and showcases amazing talent each season. I believe it will do the same here in the U.S.

    David Archuleta will find a better record label and hope he finds better producers who will find strong songs for his amazing voice. His last album had some good songs but they could have produced better. His best album is the Xmas album and his version of Ava Maria!

    btw..Demi Lovato always looks good!

    Nooooooo my baby boo bear :(

    Fuck Jive

  • thedarksunshine

    Awh. It’s kind of strange. The American Idol people usually get huge and then fall of the face of the earth and no one cares about them anymore. The only relevant-ish ones right now are Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Jordin Sparks and Carrie Underwood.

    i totally agree with you!! i mean how many teenagers have THAT great voice and sencere feeling?! he is AMAZING and he deserves the best of the best,he deserves a chance,and if i knew he his new album came out i would have bought it in a heart beat:):) he is one of the best and i know that he will keep going stronger than ever!!

  • Anonymous

    He didn’t get dropped we don’t even know the story yet! DAVID was the one that probably wanted to leave cuz they DID NOT promote him AT ALL. David deserves better cuz he’s so talented. You guys know NOTHING only the hardcore fans know what has been happening we HATE Jive they sucked at promoting him and since they never did that’s why his sales were low. How is an album supposed to do well without promo? It’s all their fault because they wouldn’t support him cuz he wanted to do HIS music not what they wanted to force him to be. I wish he would tweet/write a blog and let us know what’s going on.

    It sickens me that Ke$ha and all those auto toned artists are succesful and talented people like David get thrown under the bus. RIP music industry.

Will it work well? I winced and held my breath through the installation of Vista, then forget the pain and anxiety quickly when I saw Vista worked mostly as a fixed-up version of XP MS Office 2010.

    I can not say the same for the Office. First reaction: This has changed everything! Office 2010 deletes the old toolbars and menus at the top of the screen and replaced with the Ribbon, an overlapping set of tabs that regroups each application’s functions in graphical tools rather than text-driven menus. However, the photos do not do justice to the tape. See this movie to see in action. Even better, download a free 60-day concerns of Microsoft Office 2010-no, do not clear the existing Office software.

    The Ribbon mimics the tabbed interface of Firefox and Internet Explorer 7.
