Sell out: (disapproving - only interested in money)

< Previous | Next >
Hello everyone,

I learned that "sell out" can be used meaning that you are only interested in money: disapproving : to do something that does not agree with your beliefs, values, etc., especially in order to make money. [Merriam-Webster]. My question: does "sell out" sound natural/correct in the examples I made below?

a. I don't like that singer any more. He sold out. Now he's making tacky commercials just to make more and more money.
b. You're a good soccer player, but you're selling out. Now you're going to play soccer in China just because they will pay you millions of dollars. You should stay in Brazil, and help our soccer to grow.

Thank you in advance!
