I think it may be a joint deal with RCA and Syco same as Rebecca and some others.

RCA only seem able to focus on a small group of their acts at one given time, even if others are releasing material.

Worse than Syco. They had Diana and Marcus on their roster but both eventually flopped. Ke$ha and Alexandra Burke are signed to them in the UK and both have seen dreadful promotion resulting in flops. JLS are now also signed to them and since even their popularity has declined. They are an atrocious label.

I don't think they're all-out terrible but they ARE very hit and miss. Apparently they don't have much money despite some fairly big acts on their books, but they are pretty loyal to the acts they do have, and are more likely to give them creative control than some of the other big labels.

With that said, I absolutely can't forgive them for failing to capitalise on how well-received Aiden's debut album was by critics, and the promotion they gave him was basically non-existent. They don't seem to be very good at pushing an artist's strengths, or keeping up momentum. It's ridiculous how long Aiden's (very strong) third single has been kept back since his album release - there's talk of it in being released in January despite the fact that Misty Eye was released months ago now.

I don't know how they'll do with Jahmene if the rumour is true, but I wish they wouldn't continue to sign XF acts when they're letting down the ones they do have. I expect they see him as a sure-fire bet, but they probably thought that about Marcus, and look how that turned out.

They weren't much better with the people from American Idol

They have a very bad reputation for messing with their artists and getting it totally wrong

Edited to add, the only good thing about them is the artist has more creative control but thats about it

I'm sure Jahmene's manager will choose the right label for Jahmene's manager. Anything else is up for discussion.
