Mariah Carey is making moves!
After her successful reality show that premiered on E! this year, ending her engagement to billionaire businessman James Packer and dumping that back up dancer boyfriend of hers (thank you!), the international icon has scored her very own music imprint, Butterfly MC Records, at Epic Records. The label made the new joint partnership announcement Monday as well as a long-awaited studio album due out “later this year.”
“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,” Carey said in a statement.
“To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career,” Epic Records chairman-CEO LA Reid added in his own statement. “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.”
I think this is a great move! Congrats to MiMi!
