Mariah Carey is taking her time to decide which label to sign up to in a bid to ensure she
gets the best deal possible. The songbird received nearly $30 million just to walk away
from her last label, EMI Group's Virgin Records.
Carey's spokeswoman says, "There are three or four big labels aggressively pursuing her.
Mariah's a smart business woman and is taking her time before she makes any decisions."
The American star is now talking with Vivendi Universal's Island Def Jam, AOL Time Warner's
Elektra Entertainment Group and J Records, run by music legend Clive Davis. Music industry
sources say Carey has also talked with Warner Brothers Records, another label under the AOL
Time Warner umbrella.
Carey, who has had more number one songs than anybody except for Elvis Presley and the Beatles,
had a falling out with EMI after her album and movie, both titled Glitter, fared poorly. The
artist, who is set to star in the upcoming film Wisegirls with Mira Sorvino, also suffered a
breakdown from nervous exhaustion in the past year.
Universal Music chairman and chief executive officer Doug Morris says, "We are trying to sign
her. I'm not sure who'll get it, but we have a very good chance."
