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.

The Art of Letting Go (47,551) by Jono from USA

"You're delusional, you're delusional." One only has to click on my post history (and I had been posting far longer on a different account back in the day) to know that I am not being paid to somehow sabotage Mariah's career (using reverse psychology, apparently) but uh interesting conspiracy theory I suppose. Reading that dig was quite upsetting a... read more

The Elusive Tour summary (47,547) by Twisterman from Brazil

This is not new that 'The Elusive Chonteuse Show" has impressed everyone where have it been. China, for example, became the main stage of Mariah Carey and her team in the last days. Provided that she landed in Beijing for five shows in Chinese territory, the musical critics and the press, in general, only wove praises the musical icon named Mariah ... read more
