X Factor Season One Winner Melanie Amaro Dropped From Epic Records?
Oh no! This makes us super sad!
Unfortunately, it looks as though Mel├óΓé¼Γäós been dropped from Epic Records, though no official confirmation has been made.
The label previously tried to release three different singles — and even had her perform Long Distance on XF this season — but none of them gained any traction.
It also seems that her debut album, Truly, was supposed to drop last year but has since been given a release date of December 31st, 2013!
Not only that, but on Epic├óΓé¼Γäós website, she is no longer listed on the artist roster page… and neither is her fellow XF season one alum, Astro, which can’t be a good sign.
Season one├óΓé¼Γäós Chris Rene and Marcus Canty, however, remain on the artist roster page, and so does season two├óΓé¼Γäós girl group, Fifth Harmony.
We think it├óΓé¼Γäós a total shame if Epic really did drop Melanie, seeing as she has SO much talent and such a remarkable voice! Unfortunately, it seems as though not enough support was put behind her in the long-run.
Perhaps they could’ve done some rebranding??
We wish Melanie the best of luck in the future, though, no matter what the outcome!
