Bree Runway has announced she’s parted ways with her label, EMI Records.
Announcing the news on social media, she explained she thought it was “important I share with you why I’ve been so uncharacteristically silent recently.” She then went on to reveal she’s “now independent” and feels “it’s the absolute best thing for my career right now.”
The full statement reads:
“Yes there have been cuts along the way but in no way am I here to bleed out to you all, but I do think it’s important I share with you why I’ve been so uncharacteristically silent recently.
“I’ve decided to part ways with my label EMI Records, Universal. I’m now independent. I feel it’s the absolute best thing for my career right now. The system truly does have a way of wearing on you, especially as a young black woman you really are up against it, naturally or perhaps, unnaturally resources are capped for us or we have to fight a million times harder for them aswell as having to fight 10x harder for our spots, it’s like all I’ve known is fight, fight, fight. I’m tired and for once I’m honouring that. Right now I’m spending time being delicate and loving to myself, I’m choosing to give myself rest and i’m really enjoying the space I’m in.
“I also don’t want to create music with the rat race mentality that artists in the system subconsciously develop, and I no longer want any desperate agendas attached to my music, I want to reel it in and take it all back to love of music. You can’t go wrong when your art is birthed this way, it’s only greatness that will follow especially when you’ve always been destined for it. I deserve the best of me and so do you guys, give me a lil second to put some life and colour back into my process of creating. I love you all, please just be patient with me.
