Blake Lewis Dropped from Record Label

That was fast.

Reportedly, Blake Lewis has already been dropped from Arista Records.

The sixth season runner-up did not see his debut album, Audio Day Dream, produce a single chart-worth single, as it underperformed American Idol standards, selling 98,000 its first week and 299,000 to date.

Clive and Blake

Clive Davis embraces Blake Lewis, months before the latter would be dropped from his record label.

Taylor Hicks and Katharine McPhee were dropped from their respective labels about 18 months after they were signed. Ruben Studdard released three albums before he was dropped.

Blake had just signed with Arista last August. We wish him the best of luck.
