Universal terminates collaboration with Axel Hirsoux
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM – Belgium’s 2014 Eurovision Song Contest representative, Axel Hirsoux, has had his record deal with Universal terminated. The singer broke the news on his Facebook page, saying, “The Eurovision Song Contest has given me a chance, and Universal … Now it’s up to me to continue”.
He added that he will keep singing for his fans, despite not being assigned to any record label. Axel made a deal with Universal during the Eurovision season last year with the two sides agreeing to release his first album. However, it was not to be. Following Eurovision, Axel released two singles which did not fare too well on the charts.
