Kylie Minogue To Leave Label Following Album Flop?

The tabloids are talking today, with rumours that Kylie Minogue is set to leave her British label Parlophone Records after fifteen years.

According to The Sun, Kylie won't be re-signing with Parlophone now that her contract has come to an end, and it's all because of the poor performance of her latest album, Kiss Me Once.

"The deal with Parlophone has come to a natural end," The Sun reported via an unnamed source. "She has the option to re-sign with them, but has decided against it because of what happened with 'Kiss Me Once'. Kylie is one of the world's leading pop stars, so she was bitterly disappointed about the performance of her album. Kylie did everything she could, even agreeing to be a judge on The Voice for a year, which is something she would've liked to avoid."

In addition to joining The Voice to promote Kiss Me Once, Kylie also signed a new management deal with Roc Nation, worked with hitmakers Sia and Pharrell, and even dropped a softcore porn video for promo single "Sexercize."

Still, it wasn't enough to turn Kiss Me Once into a hit, with the album having sold less than 200,000 copies worldwide since its release in March. It's also already fallen out of the top 50 in both the UK and Australia, so there's very little hope of salvaging the album at this point.

At this stage, what do you think Kylie needs to do to put her pop career back on track? Let us know in the comments.
