Javier Colon has split from Universal Music Group

Colon appeared in the first season of The Voice in 2011. Back then, he was coached by Marron 5 frontman Adam Levine. Colon became the show’s winner, defeating Dia Frampton. However, he always thought that Frampton would be the winner of the show. He then released his studio album Come Through for You. After winning the trophy, he signed a deal with Universal Music Group. However, working with the record was too hectic for the singer. The Mic reported that Colon severed ties with Universal Music Group because he was not being offered the support, market and promotion he needed for his albums. Colon claimed, “It’s really hard not to be upset.” The singer wanted to work on the albums and songs for his own taste, not for a bond. And so he had to endure some ups and downs in his career. Eventually Colon made it through.

In 2014, Colon signed with Concord Music Group. He then released his fourth studio album, Gravity. Since then the star has been shining. He made the most of his career and focused on doing what he truly loved, other than working without pressure. He even weathered the Covid-19 pandemic. When all live shows and concerts were canceled due to Covid, Colon started the quarantine concert series.

Aside from being a singer, Colon is a family man, golfer, traveler and dreamer. The star married Maureen Sweeney when she was 20. Colon and Sweeney recently celebrated 25 years of their marriage. He explained in his Instagram post that people were against their marriage and that they were too young to be in love. However, they have overcome all adversity and made their way through life laughing, crying, supporting and learning together. The couple shared three children together.

Colon’s main income comes from his singing career. He is known for his acoustic music. According to Gossip Biography, Colon’s net worth is said to be $1.8 million.

The Voice season 22 premieres Monday, September 19 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. It will air on Mondays and Tuesdays throughout the fall.
