Ciara has responded to rumours that she has been dropped by Sony Music’s Jive Records.

In a message to fans posted on her Facebook page she revealed that, much to her dismay, she is still very much under contract with the label. The singer wrote: “This week the net has been a buzz of the rumour that I have been dropped from my label. At this point that rumour is false. [But] it is true that I have asked and I pray that my label will release me”.

She continued: “I have had some great times and success with my label, but sometimes like all great things, it’s at that point where I feel we don’t share the same views on who I am as an artist. The past two albums have been very frustrating for me … I do understand that some labels are not financially supporting their artists and I have become one of them … I’ve tried to be a team player with the label only to have compromised what I truly believed”.
