With more than a million albums sold, and their latest record, Glee: The Music—Journey to Regionals hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in June, you'd think the cast should be rolling in dough.
"I got 400 bucks from it going No. 1," Cory sarcastically complained. "But you know what, that's OK, because if I'm patient, and if this thing does really well, maybe I'll see another 400 bucks."
Salling piped in that he'd seen "not a dime" of royalties from Sony Music.
Monteith said of course Sony is happy with their end of the deal. "Sony Columbia is so happy because they have a great platform with which to promote all this," he said.
But the cast may get sweet revenge, as many are seeking individual recording deals of their own. Star Matthew Morrison signed a deal with Mercury Records in January and Salling has signed with independent label Pipe Dream Records.
