Kris Allen, winner of "American Idol," is no longer signed to RCA Records.
According to THR
, the season eight winner that beat Adam Lambert to win the title parted ways with the label after sales of his last album failed to match or exceed his debut.
"I wanted to let everyone know that RCA and I have decided to split ways. I thank them so much for everything that they did for me. There are so many people there that contributed to my becoming the artist that I am and I will miss them all," Allen said in a statement Wednesday. "In saying that, I am really excited about what is ahead. The path has never been clearer to me. I love what I do and I will never stop. So, to my amazing fans, thank you so much for everything so far but things are only gonna get more fun. I promise."
Allen has an agreement with another management company (Pearl Group Ent.) and will continue to pursue music at this point.
Adam Lambert remains signed with RCA.
