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
"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,

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.
