Mariah Carey inks new deal
Mariah Carey has signed a deal with Island Def Jam Music Group. Universal Music Group
Chairman/CEO Doug Morris who labeled Mariah as "an international treasure" made the official
announcement yesterday. Mariah told Hits Daily Double, "I'm incredibly happy. It's a tremendous
and unprecedented opportunity to be working in tandem with Doug, Lyor and Jimmy [Iovine], and
to have the benefit of their powerful international forces, led by Jorgen Larsen. They have
collectively helped redefine pop music and I am excited to be part of their family."|
Mariah was previously signed to EMI/Virgin and was dumped by the record company walking away
with A$120 million. Mariah went to EMI/Virgin from Sony Music/Columbia, where her records have
cumulatively sold over 100 million units worldwide, making her the best-selling female performer
of all time. Expect new material from Mariah in the New Year.
