Even though nothing is confirmed yet, and O-Town is still listed as one of the artists on the official J Records web site, it appears as if O-Town has been dropped from J Records. This was sent out yesterday by a yahoo! group, and has already spread to thousands of O-Town groups….
“O-Town has been dropped from J Records.
Today Amber and I called J Records to set up a phone interview with O-Town, and we were informed that they had just been dropped from the label. Tell everyone, and be sure to let them know that Adams_Chix/Front Row Fanz were the first to get you this Information!”
Of course this information is from the fans, so nothing is confirmed, but unfortunately, it all makes sense. Their contract with J Records was for two albums only, and at the last concert on Saturday in Orlando, FL, O-Town finished off with a *very* emotional performance of “All Or Nothing” which not only had fans in tears, but O-Town, themselves, as well. As they walked off-stage, Trevor had his arm around Jacob, both crying. During the concert they thanked the fans for supporting them and staying with them.
Right now, it is said that O-Town is looking for a new record label, and the fans are trying to help them anyway they can. It’s just sad that J Records dropped O-Town when their album sales were starting to pick up. As of a little while ago, they had sold just over 250 000 copies of “O2”, which is a huge improvement from their first week of sales.
No matter where O-Town’s paths lead them in life, O-Town fans are staying with them and are very proud to be fans of such amazing men who have made an impact. They’ll never be forgotten.
