Season 7 runner up David Archuleta, after his second album disappointed, agreed to split ways from Jive Records, according to Hollywood Reporter.
That second album, “The Other Side of Down,” sold only 67,000 copies and generated no radio hits. His first album sold more than one million copies.
UPDATE: David has clarified that he left Jive Records, not the other way around.
“They’re changing as a company. And, then, I feel like I’m changing as an artist. I’m changing the direction I’m going, too. There were offers to continue working with them, but it just didn’t feel like the right thing now.”
