IDJ teams with Mariah Carey for fan club

Island Def Jam (IDJ) is getting into the artist fan club business, kicking off the initiative with a new Internet-based club on behalf of Mariah Carey. Carey and the IDJ record label are teaming on the official Mariah Carey fan club, a joint venture called Honey B. Fly.
Starting yesterday, fans could sign up for the service through mariahcareyfanclub.com. A subscription costs $35 per year in the United States and $45 per year internationally. Fan club members get access to presale concert tickets for Carey's upcoming tour, as well as music and video exclusives.
They also get an introductory letter from Carey welcoming members to the club, an 8x10 autographed photo, a T-shirt available only to club members, and a membership card that can be used in conjunction with special retail and concert events.
IDJ vice president of new media Larry Mattera says that the Honey B. Fly venture is the first of a half-dozen artist fan clubs the label plans to launch in the coming year. Fueling that interest is the opportunity for secondary revenue streams. IDJ and the artists in question will share the money generated through club ventures. Until recently, clubs were operated by the artists.
Driving the artists' interest in partnering with IDJ on clubs is support in the effort to stay connected with fans. "Honey B. Fly is really a way for me to have personal contact and involvement with my fans worldwide," Carey said in a statement.

I love "Do you think of me". I remember that I played that song all the time in 1993 (luckily I had more than one CD-single with that track). I don't think Mariah's music was boring at the beginning. It was pure, and she sounded lovely. Without Tommy's work, I'm not sure that Mariah would be here today. Not as the big mega star she was.

Mariah and Nick (45,667) by Jessica from USA

Nick knew what he getting into when he married Mariah and Mariah knew what she was getting into when she married Nick. We can't just bash Nick because we believe he is the reason Mariah wrote "Camouflage" and "Faded". Every story has two sides. I would love to hear Nick's side also. We don't know what goes on behind closed doors. Yes, Nick is immat... read more

The webmaster / album art (45,666) by this_is_qhm from the Philippines

Funny, I also thought the same thing. I also read that article about the album cover, which came out around the same time the former album title was leaked. So when I first saw the deluxe album cover for MIAMTEC, I knew that this album really was slated for a 2013 release to benefit from the hype #Beautiful and her stint on Idol generated. This con... read more
