Mariah Carey leaves Columbia for Virgin

Mariah Carey has said, "See ya" to her longtime label, Columbia, and has signed a multiple-album deal with Virgin Records. The R&B superstar's first release under her new contract is expected to be the soundtrack to her '80s movie "All That Glitters" in late summer. The 20th Century Fox film, starring Carey as an up-and-coming singer named Billie, will hit theaters on Labor Day weekend.
"I am elated about my new partnership with Virgin Records, and I look forward to being a part of their uniquely creative musical environment," Carey said in a statement Tuesday (April 3). "Hallelujah!" Virgin did not disclose details of the multimillion-dollar deal, but the press release called the deal "unprecedented."
Carey released six full-length albums, an unplugged EP, a Christmas LP and a greatest-hits compilation on Columbia. She married and later divorced Tommy Mottola, the chairman of Sony Music, Columbia's parent company. The 31-year-old singer has sold more than 140 million albums and singles worldwide and has earned 84 gold, platinum and multiplatinum certifications, according to Columbia.
Carey collaborated with "Super Freak" singer Rick James and the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige) on the "All That Glitters" soundtrack, which also is expected to feature a contribution from Da Brat and a duet between Carey and Eric Benét.

Yes Mariah, if you got it flaunt it. Also, a negative Lamb is an oxymoron. You're either a lamb or a moron on oxy. Meanwhile, Mimi is snatching everybody's lives, wrapping it in her custom holiday-paper and giving it bac... read more

Bootleg: at Pearl Palms Concert Theatre (48,685) by PieterLamb from Indonesia

I'm just quite surprised how this bootleg item was sold in iTunes. Even many fans site in various social media had promoted this bootleg item quite obviously. You could disagree with me, but if I'm not mistaken Mariah never endorsed a bootleg/pirated item that is not officially released by herself. So I won't buy it. If I want to hear more Mariah's... read more
