Shakira’s label-shopping

Shakira is already at the center of a bidding war by record labels as her contract with Epic expires. The Colombian superstar is getting interest from many major labels, including Warner and Island Def Jam, as she becomes a free agent. The singer, who has a 10-year touring deal with Live Nation valued at up to $100 million and has delivered the three albums to Epic under their contract, is expected to start discussions with record execs early next year. But a source told us, “While there has been a lot interest from major labels, it is too early to start the formal discussions. Shakira and her team will sit down in the new year to discuss her options. Her deal with Live Nation continues, so her next move will be worked out in partnership with Live Nation.” It is not certain if she will sign again with Sony-owned record label Epic, now headed up by “The X Factor” judge LA Reid. Sources tell us that due to her commitment to her world tour, Shakira has “not yet had the chance to meet with LA Reid since he took over in June.” A rep for Shakira declined to comment.

I hope she gets some one who will promote her in a better way than we have seen in these past few years! Better music videos, better promo, etc

If she doesn't start her own label (which she should)she should go with Island Records. They are a World Music label and she is the biggest World Music star on the planet.

Shakira could go w/o a label comp. Nd she will still be the hottest best selling #1, record breaking, internationally, world-wide adored, superNOVA goddess that she has always been.

I'm gonna have to agree. They've tried to dilute and foul her music too much. I remember the Rolling Stone interview where they kept pressuring and pressuring her and trying to mold her. She may also need a new manager. She needs a juggernaut m [..]

who cares. she's rich anyway, and her sales will go down no matter whom she signs. also, all these execs and producers will take steps to further dilute and commercialize her sound. long story cut short - big fucking deal.
