It’s official, it has been announced that Little Mix have parted ways with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco.This follows years of big time success following the forming of the girl group on the X Factor in 2011.
A spokesperson for Cowell’s label stated: “Syco Music will no longer work with Modest Management and therefore any artists signed to that management company.
‘We do, of course, wish all artists affected by this decision every future success. Consequently, LM5, the forthcoming Little Mix album A&R’d and released on Syco Music, is to be serviced by RCA at the request of Syco and Simon Cowell.”
This shock announcement come only days before Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall, Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Ann Pinnock are set to release their latest effort LM5, due to drop on November 16th.
What we’re all trying to work out is, why the split from Cowell and Syco? Well, an inside source said that the girls and their management team have grown increasingly frustrated with the company over the last year, which resulted in some serious arguments.
They confronted Simon and his label via an email, which resulted in a ‘row’ between their management Modest and Cowell. He then decided to ‘cut all ties’ with the company’s artists including last year’s X Factor winners Rak-Su.
The girls will still be making music though, and apparently, will continue to work with Sony, moving to one of their other label RCA for future releases.
