Mariah Carey Inks New Label Partnership, New Album Set To Arrive This Year

Posted April 10, 2017

It looks like Mariah Carey isn’t letting her recent breakup with her backup dancer/boyfriend slow her down. It was announced on Monday (April 10) that the singer has inked a major partnership with her Butterfly MC Records and Sony Music Entertainment label.

Via Variety:

Epic Records has recommitted to Mariah Carey, announcing Monday a new joint partnership between the singer’s Butterfly MC Records and the Sony Music Entertainment label as well as a long-awaited studio album due out “later this year.” Terms of the partnership were not disclosed.

The deal seemingly puts to rest rumors that Carey’s recording contract was in jeopardy. The five-time Grammy winner was signed by Epic Records chairman-CEO LA Reid in 2016, with whom she worked on 2005’s multi-platinum-selling album “The Emancipation of Mimi” (recorded and released while Reid was running Universal Music label Island Def Jam).

Said Reid in a statement: “To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career. Mariah’s incomparable talents as a singer, with her vocal range that is nothing short of legendary, are matched by her brilliance as a songwriter, producer, and performer par excellence. Mariah’s chart records have established her enduring place in music history, a position that is cherished and supported by her loyal fans worldwide. I look forward to building upon all of Mariah’s success for years to come.”

Added Carey: “I am putting my heart and soul into making more new music. I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love.”
