Simon Cowell Takes A Different Approach With Labrinth
Labrinth recently stated that Simon Cowell is giving him more time to develop as an artist than The X Factor graduates on his record label, Syco. Labrinth was the first non-talent-show-winning artist in 6 years to be signed to Simon Cowell's Syco label, which may explain why Simon is taking his time with him...
Unlike The X Factor winners – who Simon takes under his wings and gets them to do as much as they can in very little time, which often dries them out within the space of 5 years – the 22-year-old says that Simon Cowell is taking a different approach with him.
"Simon is letting me develop one step at a time. You don't usually see that in The X Factor artists, it's usually just one road," the 'Pass Out' producer told Newsbeat. "It's really cool that he's willing to nourish talent. With me, he's allowing me to grow because he believes that I can do a lot and have longevity."
Labrinth also shared how busy he is as a producer: "I've been getting mad calls from America. Every artist you can think of in America is on my case." You better get back to the lab then, Lab!
