Taylor Hicks & Ruben Studdard Booted From Labels

Posted by Fara Kearnes on January 8, 2008 5:43 PM |

taylor hicksTaylor Hicks has been dropped from his record label following the heels of another former American Idol winner, Ruben Studdard, who was also dropped from the label. While the "Soul Patrol" must be reeling, it just proves that Chris Daughtry should have won that Idol season hands down and his record sales prove it.

Two weeks after reports that J Records had dropped Ruben, it was confirmed that the label was also parting ways with Taylor, according to a statement released Monday.

Ruben, the season-two Idol winner, released three albums for J Records. The first, 2003's Soulful, went platinum; the second, the gospel collection 2004's I Need an Angel, went gold; the third, 2006's The Return, did not have similar success.

Taylor, who beat out runner-up Katharine McPhee to claim Idol's fifth-season, release one album for J Records which went platinum but still sold far less than other past Idol performers.

Meanwhile, Daughtry, who finished in fourth place behind Hicks on Idol, sold millions more copies with his own 2006 album, Daughtry.

The most recent Idol champ Jordin Sparks might be facing a fate similar to Taylor and Ruben. Her self-titled album debuted at No. 10 last November, the lowest-charting debut ever for an Idol winner. Her first-week sales of 119,000 were another record Idol low.
