*Erica Campbell is suing her solo record distributor for royalties she claims are owed to her, The Blast reports.

The Mary Mary singer released two solo albums over the last few years, and she allegedly never saw a dime from the sales.

Campbell’s husband’s record company, My Block Records, entered into a deal with Entertainment One US LP to distribute two Campbell albums: “My Help” and “My Help 2.0.”

Although Campbell wrote several songs on the two albums, E-One collected all the royalties from both. My Block Records believes they are owed an estimated $2 million from record sales. They claim E-One told them the albums made zero profit and any money earned went to E-One’s expenses.

My Block Records claims E-One spent over $500,000.00 in album production, advances, manufacturing and other costs on the Campbell albums … which Erica and her husband believe are costs “designed to deprive” My Block “of substantial revenue.”

The lawsuit also reveals that My Block Records entered into a deal with E-One for an album by Musiq Soulchild, but claims E-One screwed them on that project as well.

My Block and Campbell are seeking damages in excess of $500,000.
