R&B / Pop superstar Janet Jackson has severed ties with Def Jam Records after releasing just one album via the label.
Producer Rodney “Darkchild" Jerkins made the announcement of Janet's exit from Def Jam in a blog on Rap-Up.com today (September 22).
According to Jerkins, Janet had been feuding with the label and wasn’t happy with the promotion of her latest album, Discipline.
“We didn’t get the support from the record company," said Jerkins. “[Janet] felt like it wasn’t pushed. I felt like it wasn’t pushed correctly. She just didn’t get her just-do as an artist of that magnitude."
Janet signed to Island Def Jam in 2007 and released Discipline in February 2008.
