Backstreet Boys Jump Jive Records

The Backstreet Boys are switching music labels!

Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough and AJ McLean just posted a note on their official website titled “Freedom”:

“So the news is out! The Backstreet Boys are no longer signed to long time record label Jive Records. The amicable split is very exciting for the group. ‘This is the best thing, at the best time that could have ever happened for us’, says Brian Littrell. ‘We are confident in the future of our band, and are looking forward to the new things to come. 2011 is going to be a great year for us!’ KTBSPA.” (Keep the Backstreet Pride Alive)

BSB kick off their concert tour on Saturday (May 29) at Miami’s American Airlines Arena – Waterfront Theatre.

    And in English this means they were DUMPED by their label. Sorry, no longer relevant to anyone musically. They are essentially a nostalgia act. Have you seen all the chunky housewives that attend their shows?! Now THAT is worth seeing. LOL!!!!

    They were not dropped. The group have being having disputes with Jive Records since the early 00′s. They wanted to leave the label earlier on but were commited by contract to release a further two albums with the label. They have done thay now, and thus left Jive Records. I think this is a good move, it will give them more creative control.

    I am so happy for them that they are leaving that stupid label. Now I’m wondering which label they’ll go to next. Who knows maybe Cherrytree, Columbia, LaFace????

    The Backstreet Boys have been unsatisfied with Jive for a good 10 years now and were finally able to negotiate a split from them even though they still had one album left on their contract. I wish they had done it sooner! The Backstreet Boys put Jive records on the map and for the last 10 years Jive has only been creatively stifling and unsupportive. They’ve been together as a group for 17 years strong and still sell out areas all over the world. This is their 7th world tour and they have a 130million records sold. Those aren’t small figures to knock by any means!

    I think the BSB can be used as an example of a group that refuses to be taken advantage of by their management, record company etc. Current artists should pay attention if they want any sort of longevity in this business.

    so happy for BSB, they are very talented artists and great guys, who inspire so many people with their awesome music
    jive sucks because it didn’t give the boys what they deserved, so congrats BSB, i hope now they can do what they want and get the respect they deserve for being so successful for such a long time, and always making good music.

    KTBSPA :) :) :)
