That's the buzz according to BV's Jawn Murray. When the news broke that Kelly Rowland parted ways with Columbia, Solange was being released from Geffen. (UPDATE: The label refutes BV story. Solange is still signed.)
Now my sources tell me that the real reason the story about Rowland leaked the way it did last week was so that no one would realize that Geffen/Interscope Records has opted not to further their relationship with Knowles' daughter Solange Knowles. The eclectic singer's sophomore release 'Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams' has only sold around 138,000 units since its release in August of 2008 and Geffen/Interscope didn't see the value in doing a new CD on her.
"Geffen did a one-off deal with Music World Entertainment for Solange and wasn't interested in doing a new contract with her. People at the label really liked working with her because other than her infamous news outburst in Las Vegas, she was a constant professional. There were challenges dealing with her camp, but Solange was great to work with. In the end, the CD didn't sell despite Solange's countless high profile appearances," the record label source told me.
