Coyle latest act to do Tesco exclusivity deal

Nadine Coyle is the latest singer to enter into an exclusivity deal with Tesco. Following on from Simply Red and Faithless, the Girl Aloud will make her debut solo album available exclusively via the supermarket giant.

Coyle had originally been working with Universal Music on her solo debut, but sources say she opted for a deal with the retail firm instead because they were happy to leave her and her management to sort out the creative side of the venture.

The Mirror quotes a source as follows: “Being able to work on the music that she wants was the main reason for going with Tesco. She’s decided who she’s wanted to work with from the start. She’s in control of every single decision – from the writers, the producers and the collaborators – and wants to produce her dream album. She didn’t want to be a puppet for a record company”.
