Kelis has found herself without a label after being dropped from Jive. The less than stellar sales of her 2006 album Kelis Was Here could one of the main reason's she was given the boot. Not originally signed to Jive, she was shifted to Jive after the SonyBMG merger.
"It was a case of being in the ever-shrinking world of the record industry and finding herself on a label she wasn't signed to and without a champion," says Kelis' manager, Jeff Rabhan. "She's a different kind of artist — very image and style-driven. It's either something you get or you don't."

Kelis has been working on an indie dance record with Cee-Lo. A full-on pop effort with Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams) will be shopped around soon. "We're not opposed to another major label deal, but it would have to be non-traditional," adds Rabhan. Kelis is also in talks to host a Project Runway-like show on VH1 and is auditioning for numerous TV and film roles [SOURCE]
