The singer, whose new single 'Commander' was produced by David Guetta, previously said that parting ways with the label was a "mutual decision", but has since admitted that leaving the company was not her wish.
She told Entertainment Weekly: "The records that I put out probably didn't perform as well as maybe they wanted them to. We live in an industry where you've got to bring in money... I get it."
Rowland, who is now signed to label Universal Motown, recently described her album as "dance-inspired" without neglecting her R&B roots.
The LP is expected to be released later this year.
