Report: 'American Idol' runner-up Clay Aiken dropped by RCA Records

By John Bracchitta, 02/20/2009 

Clay Aiken has reportedly been dropped by RCA Records, the label he signed with after finishing as American Idol's second-season runner-up in 2003.

Hints that Aiken had been dropped by the label first emerged when RCA updated its website and the former Idol finalist was no longer listed as an artist, Billboard reported Friday.

According to a Billboard source, although RCA's website was only recently updated recently, the label actually quietly dropped Aiken a couple of months ago.

An RCA representative was not immediately available for comment, Billboard added.

Assuming RCA has indeed parted ways with Aiken, his departure would mean that seventh-season Idol runner-up David Archuleta is now the only Idol runner-up that is still with the label they signed with after competing on the Fox reality competition.

Archuleta signed a recording contract with 19 Recordings/Jive Records last June.
