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.

by Ardis from Earth
I think she should go "old school". Forget trying to appeal to the teenage crowd. Grown ass folks buy music too. I say maybe do it with Missy Elliot, Salt & Pepa, Queen Latifa, or even MC Lite. That would be hot tamale. If only Lisa Left Eye Lopes was still alive, I would suggest her too. (Friday 22 May 2015; 23:53)
