The Singer had Earlier Revealed that she was Broke
In January this year, Sam opened up about being broke after she split with Hollywood records and had to buy out her contract. “I’m not even going to tell you guys the amount of money that I had to pay after leaving the label to claim songs that I had already recorded,” she revealed at the time.
Sam further said, “And I tried, I really genuinely did try to pay off my music, the way that the label suggested after we parted ways. I tried their way and it did not work.”
She added, “I’m doing it God’s way. I’m trusting the process. I thought it was gonna be easy, just go to the studio record, put out music. That’s not how the industry works. It takes time, it takes money that I don’t have. It takes patience.”
We wish Samantha a speedy recovery! Stay tuned for more news and updates.
