Hollywood, Capitol. But Syco is the ultimate worst even though its not a proper label lol
JESSIE J. NO-ONE ELSE
I just don't get why people want to make sense of the world. At the end of the day, we are all living on some random rock in the middle of a big black darkness which we know nothing about. It is pretty much a lost cause. Don't agonise over it...just enjoy life!
Because no matter how good you are as a singer/performer, no matter how much success you have, you will always come second to Diddy. Bad Boy was a vehicle for Diddy to promote himself and only himself.
Look at what he did with Danity Kane -- platinum selling girl group that had 2 back to back #1 albums, had hot hit with Damaged, yet ****ed them over for his own project. He had Dawn think she was going solo and had her working on his secret album, one of the girls found out and it immediately caused dissension in the group. It ended with him disbanding the group after firing Aubrey and D.Woods because she called him out on it.
Dream had a good thing going. They were doing well on tour, their singles were doing well on radio -- then drama within the group over favoritism (and alleged sleeping with Diddy) caused the blonde Melissa to quit the group. He quickly replaced her with Casey, had the group re-record the songs recorded with Melissa and repackage them for their second album. He forced a hyper sexualized image on the then-teenage girls, something they were very uncomfortable with. After much delays and ********, he decided not to release their second album and disbanded the group. It wasn't until years later did their album get released internationally.
Look at all the other artists he'd had under his banner, artists who had good hits and albums did well, they all took a backseat to Diddy's self-promotion. At the end of the day, for him to claim to be a good businessman, he can't seem to manage a successful career for anyone but himself.

It's the third tier major label imprints that you really have to worry about. Interscope's Cherrytree Records, Universal/RedOne's vanity imprint 2120, come to mind. They're little more than graveyards for second rate acts who couldn't cut it on the main label.
Navy choosing Rih's label over a few ineffective-at-the-end-of-the-day choices compared to the MESS of Bad Boy dropping acts after 1 album & Hollywood moving on after they milk you need to be more appreciative.
Hollywood Records. I don't really get why people hate HWR.
Hollywood Records is notorious for under/not promoting their artists. As someone said before, they waited half a year to give Demi a new single, they mishandled the CBT era and no matter how successful you are they'll only give you two singles per era, at the most.
I love what IDJ did for Mariah's career , as in TEOM & touch my body but after that they been hurting mariah's career rather then helping. Not releasing Migrate , For The Record , Side Effects. Memoirs era was a mess. Obsessed could have went to #1 instead of peaking at #7 if given more promo & too much more to list. At least MCIIY garnered some success. IDJ main subject is Rihanna.
