The Wanted is one of the most popular boy bands right now but are they in danger of getting dropped by their record label?
Just several days ago, The Wanted announced one of the most devastating news ever! They revealed on their website that they were canceling their European tour dates in February and March “due to some unforeseeable changes in their scheduling.”
But as if that wasn’t bad enough, it looks like things are a lot worse than we thought!
In fact, word on the street is that the lads are in danger of being dropped by their record label, considering their new album, “Word Of Mouth” only sold 40,000 copies in the UK. In addition to the low album sales, it’s only been six weeks since the record dropped on November 4th, and it already dropped to #75 on the music charts.
A source dished, “despite high hopes that The Wanted could rival One Direction as worldwide stars, it just hasn’t happened.”
The insider continued, “No final decision has been made, but all promo for the album has been scrapped and no more singles are planned.”
We really hope this isn’t true! Honestly, if you really think about it, “Word Of Mouth” didn’t do TOO badly! It debuted at #10 on the Irish Singles Chart on November 8th and at number 9 on the UK Albums Chart. So are the boys really in danger, or is this just a tabloid rumor?
Let’s not believe the rumors just yet! The guys still have tour dates booked for the UK, Ireland, and the US next year…. So we’ll wait for an actual announcement from their camp… What do you guys think is going on with them? Hit the comments below and tweet us @PopStopTV.
