It's been confirmed that David Archuleta has been dropped from Jive Records. Maybe it's my recent frustrations with Jive (see: Ciara) talking, but I'm really not all that bothered by this news. Case-in-point: Since the release of his sophomore album The Other Side Of Down last October, Jive has released a whopping -0- videos to promote the thing. I think David can easily find a much more competent label that will gladly sign him--similar to the way his fellow Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee did following her split with RCA. David's much too talented & driven for this to be the end.
