Fantasia Barrino Dropped from Record Label

by at . Comments

Another American Idol finalist has been dropped from her record label.

The fate has befallen Taylor Hicks, Katharine McPhee and Blake Lewis.

Now, Fantasia Barrino has reportedly been dropped from 19 Management. The reason for the split, according to Entertainment Weekly sources, is "creative differences."

This comes as a surprise because - given the poor climate for record sales - Fantasia's albums have done fairly well. Her debut, Free Yourself, sold almost twp million copies, and the follow-up, 2006's Fantasia, went gold and garnered three Grammy nominations.
