Marc Mysterio V Brandy On Dancing With The Stars: What Really Happened

MARC Mysterio, currently embroiled win a dispute with Dancing On The Stars pro/celebrity hoofer Brandy, recently inked an exclusive deal with Universal Canada via his company World Class Records (WCR). Each artist signing to WCR/UMC will be produced or executive produced by Marc Mysterio, whom will also run A&R.

“Universal’s backing in giving us the ability to sign and release any act we want. This speaks to DJ culture having arrived in North America,” says Marc Mysterio. “If we can sum up this partnership’s personality in one word, that would be ‘pro-active'”.

Of course, we can’t help but to mention Brandy – whom Anorak Pal Marc Mysterio is suing for alleged breach of contract for failing to provide the vocals she was paid $10,000 as per written contract as a side artist fee.

She could win the bozo the clown of the month award, but this time not for her dancing skills (or lack thereof) on Dancing With The Stars . The song in which she was originally set to appear in “Shout It Out” by Marc Mysterio, was just sent to radio last Monday and in its first week, bested Eminem to slot #2 on the New Airplay Chart for Top 40 Radio this past week across Canada.

Says Marc:

“The success of the song without the star power of a Brandy being featured on it shows not only how strong a record it is, but that her not being on the record is a loss that is tough to swallow. There is a lot of, what if she hadn’t screwed us over, where would this song be. I hope she thinks that this Dancing With The Stars fiasco was worth it. Past experience from reality shows (i.e. Samantha Fox on I’m A Celeb) tells me otherwise.

Unless you have a solid product that is already working, most of the post-reality show records underperform so if this was her hope to ditch us and use this bounce to re-launch her career solo, instead of doing it the right way as Kelly Rowland did with David Guetta, karma can be a bitch. But, let’s see. I’m focused on working with Universal and my other international partners on making ‘Shout It Out’ the biggest success possible as is, and let everything else take care of itself.”
