Matt Cardle Dropped by Syco and Columbia Records

Matt Cardle (Winner of the X Factor in 2010) has been dropped by Sony Music’s Columbia records. Cardle wasnt able to perform as well as Columbia were hoping!

Cardle hasn’t given up hope of a pop career yet though, tweeting: ‘I have parted ways with columbia records, we were heading in different directions, big news coming soon…. so excited! : ) love you all xx’.

Although Cardle’s winner’s single When We Collide made it to No.1, his next release Starlight clocked in at a disappointing No.185 and his final effort Amazing charted at No.84.

Matt why not just start create your own music and distributing it via RouteNote. Im sure you will make a lot more money!
