Singer, songwriter Mariah Carey recently announced a new joint partnership with Epic Records. The new alliance is between Carey’s Butterfly MC Records and the Sony Music Entertainment label. It is said that a studio album will be out later this year.
This new deal puts to rest any rumors that Carey was losing her recording contract. LA Reid, Epic Records chairman-CEO released 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.”
Later Carey added:
“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.”
Reid worked with Carey on her multi-platinum-selling album The Emancipation of Mimi in 2005.
Also, in recent news, Carey and boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka are rumored of splitting because of jealousy relating to Nick Cannon.
