It doesn’t really matter that her albums do less then peak. She’s a Rite of Passage artist, her catalogue gets millions of streams ( the hits and a lot of the non hit backlog). It doesn’t matter to the label that she makes quieter albums now. They still do well objectively, sell a lot of vinyls, and has an avid fanbase that streams her music constantly. She has made them so much fucking money. She’s in no danger of getting dropped. The label is fine to let her be bc 1) they know she’ll walk if they try to control her 2) all parties are happy with the status quo and they aren’t gonna risk fucking with that.
so at the end of the day Lana will release whatever she wants , and any suggestions by management or the label will probably about single choices and promotional things. Strictly the business side. Lana runs the music part eith an iron fist as she should. She has all the power and she knows it.
