Mariah nets fortune

Tuesday 3 April 2001

Mariah Carey has signed a massive recording deal with Virgin, believed to be the most lucrative in music history. The full details of the "multi-album, multi-million dollar" deal have not been confirmed by the label, however it is believed to be in the region of 20 million per album.
Carey, celebrating putting her signature to the phenomenal contract, said: "I am elated about my partnership with Virgin Records and I look forward to being part of their uniquely creative musical environment." She concluded, somewhat understandably: "Hallelujah!"
Mariah, 31, has sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, achieving 14 US Number One singles.
