'The X Factor' stars Reggie 'n' Bollie have been dropped by Simon Cowell's label Syco
Reggie 'n' Bollie have been dropped by their record label.
The lively Ghanaian duo, who stormed to second place on 'The X factor' in 2015, have been let go by Syco after they failed to see eye-to-eye with Simon Cowell's music firm.
A source told The Sun's newspaper: "Reggie 'n' Bollie were huge hits on the show which is why they reached the final and very nearly won. But after they left the show, excitement for them dwindled and they struggled to turn their support into record sales.
"They have worked really hard for the last year but their relationship with Syco didn't work out and they wanted different things."
The reggae-loving pair - who were mentored by Cheryl on the talent show - launched themselves onto the UK pop scene with two energetic singles 'New Girl' and 'Link Up' and whilst the former reached No.26 in the charts in June, 'Link Up' was a financial flop.
However, they plan to take a new musical direction and will continue to release music independently.
The source explained: "Their music was very poppy and chart-focused but now they want to focus on a different style.
"It isn't the end for them though as they plan on continuing to make music as a duo."
Meanwhile, Reggie 'n' Bollie are loving their newfound freedom, and took to Twitter to confirm that they will be releasing music alone and admitted if feels "right".
They said: "WE'RE FINALLY INDEPENDENT N IT FEELS F#CKING RIGHT (sic)."
