Brandy has parted ways with her label, Atlantic Records, after 11 years with the company.
The singer requested and was granted an unconditional release from her recording contract with the company, and she’s already in talks with other labels, according to her spokesperson.
“Artists get to a place where they want some change in their life,” Brandy’s spokesperson Courtney Barnes said. “She wanted to move on.”
Brandy’s future plans also include a fall 2005 comedy series produced by Touchstone Television for FOX (see “Brandy Developing Weekly TV Show For FOX” ), which she will co-executive produce with her mother and manager, Sonja Norwood, and producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan. She may also become involved with two other as-yet-unnamed television programs.
Brandy released four albums with Atlantic, including her 1994 self-titled debut and June’s Afrodisiac. In a statement released via her publicist, Brandy thanked Atlantic’s staff for “helping her make music history.”
The singer made headlines earlier this year when it was revealed that she was never legally wed to the “husband” she parted ways with in 2003 (see “Brandy’s ‘Ex-Husband’ Says They Were Never Really Married” ).
