Sources confirmed to Billboard that most of the Arista Records 170 staffers will be let go as the label folds into BMG’s sister divisions. The downsized label would retain a small A&R and marketing staff but be placed under the RCA Music Group banner. It’s widely thought that the LaFace-affiliated acts, including OutKast, Usher, Pink, and Cee-Lo will be transferred to Jive. while Sarah McLachlan, Dido and Avril Lavigne would shift to RCA, and Whitney Houston, Kenny G and rap newcomer J-Kwon would go to J Records.
