Ciao Record Labels

In the latest seismic shift to rock the music industry, pop superstar Madonna is close to leaving Warner Music Group Corp.’s Warner Bros. Records for a $120 million deal with concert-promotion giant Live Nation Inc., according to people familiar with the deal. Madonna still has another studio album left to deliver with Warner Music.
