Indiefied- Kelis

Kelis is no longer with Jive. This is peace because she's an out of box thinker and should have a home that caters to beautiful things like independence and individual voice. Word has it she's working on a dance album with Cee-lo.
Seriously, artists who own their own mind need to leave all of these majors. Their fans will still purchase their albums, and will probably invest moreso seeing as greedmongers won't get a cut. Enough is enough with these stale, unoriginal, biting "major" labels.

Her manager had the following to say about the change:

“It was a case of being in the ever-shrinking world of the record industry and finding herself on a label she wasn’t signed to and without a champion,” says Kelis’ manager, Jeff Rabhan. “She’s a different kind of artist — very image and style-driven. It’s either something you get or you don’t.”Kelis has been working on an indie dance record with Cee-Lo. A full-on pop effort with Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams) will be shopped around soon. “We’re not opposed to another major label deal, but it would have to be non-traditional,” adds Rabhan. Kelis is also in talks to host a Project Runway-like show on VH1 and is auditioning for numerous TV and film roles."
