Los Angeles: Universal Music is reportedly considering parting ways with English-Irish boy band The Wanted.

Band members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Nathan Sykes, Jay McGuiness and Tom Parker may be dropped from the Universal Music`s record label due to the low sales of their latest album, "Word of Mouth", reports

"Despite high hopes that The Wanted would rival One Direction as worldwide stars, it just hasn`t happened. `Word Of Mouth` has proved a monumental flop, which has just about sealed their fate," said a source.

"The album was a disaster from start to finish. It had no direction and was delayed for over a year due to problems. No final decision has been made, but all promos for the album have been scrapped and no more singles are planned," the source added.
