The duo, who finished second on the X Factor in 2015, are no longer working with Simon Cowell’s record label after their music failed to make an impact.
X FACTOR duo Reggie N Bollie have been dropped by Syco Records after just a year.
The pair, who were favourites of mentor Cheryl, came second in the 2015 series of the show but after two singles they have been released from their deal with the label.
Their debut single New Girl reached No26 in the charts last June, but the follow-up single Link Up failed to make an impact when it debuted in December.
After finishing in second place, Simon Cowell tweeted: “And congrats to Reggie and Bollie. The nicest people. They will sell records next year.”
But a source told The Sun’s Bizarre: “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.
“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.”
A Syco spokesman said: “Reggie ’N’ Bollie are no longer working with us. We wish the guys the best of luck for the future.”
The pair, who originally auditioned for the programme under the name Menn on Poinnt, hinted they had stopped working with the label this morning on Twitter.
They tweeted: “WE’RE FINALLY INDEPENDENT N IT FEELS F#CKING RIGHT. #WeCallOurOwnShots #HappyNewMonth2Uall (sic)”
They announced they had signed to Simon Cowell’s label in January 2016, just weeks after they narrowly lost out to Louisa Johnson in the final of the ITV singing competition.
Mentor Cheryl tipped them for a bright future after they collaborated with Craig David and Fuse ODG during a performance on the show.
