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.

I'm flying to NY to see Mariah on Sunday and Monday. Now that she has added three non Christmas songs to the set list, I feel I'll be in heaven. I just wanted to share my enthusiasm.

I read a comment on YouTube this morning that sums up my opinion on the current state of Mariah's career, she's one song away from a comeback. All she needs is a great song and the public will embrace her again and forget the dismal Rockefeller performance.

I hope you have an amazing day, and enjoy the show. Have fun for us lambs that can't make it to the shows. I expect a full report tomorrow. Just kidding.
