Leon Jackson Dropped By Sony

Former X Factor winner Leon Jackson has been dropped from his record label Sony after he failed to transfer his popularity from the TV show to record sales. Although his debut album 'Right Now' entered the UK album chart at #3, selling 130,000 copies. His single 'Don't Call This Love' was pipped to the #1 chart position by Peter Kay's character Geraldine McQueen with her spoof reality 'Winner's Song'. After this humiliation, the singer was doomed.

In a competitive market, Leon Jackson just couldn't compete with the other 'reality stars'. Leona Lewis was marketed so differently and given a better image, where as Leon was rushed and rough in comparison. Expect him to show up in a pantomime near you this Christmas!
