Last week, we reported that David Archuleta was dropped from Jive Records after the sales of his last album were less than stellar, to say the least.
At the time, we felt really bad for him, but considering he's so young, we also felt like that being set free from the label might also open him up to create new music without their involvement. Apparently, Archie agrees with us as he's posted a YouTube video, explaining his side of the story of what went down with Jive.
Take a listen to David talk about his "decision" and how its going to affect his career from now on. (above)
So grown up. He's really taking this massive change in stride. Good for him!
Since David Archuleta's second album The Other Side of Down comes out today, the Idol alum dishes about what's next for him and how he's embracing his Latinoliciousness by possibly recording an album in Spanish.
That [recording a Spanish-language album] is something that I would love to do. I mentioned it to my label and they’re excited about it. Half of my family is Hispanic. I want to show them my gratitude. I don’t speak as much Spanish as I would like to. I still talk to my grandpa in Spanish. I want to immerse myself in that culture. One of the first songs I ever learned was a Selena song called “Como La Flor.” I grew up listening to and loving Selena's music. We always had her playing. My mom is a huge fan of Gloria Estefan. I love La India. There are also some songs I like from Christian Castro, Luis Miguel and Luis Fonsi.
Love it, bb. Ain't no shame in trying something new!
