It's no secret that in recent years the music career of Mariah Carey have not been very successful. Rumors began to circulate on the internet that the icon & her label home Epic Records would be parting ways after the poor performance of her recent releases including the single "I Don't".
Epic made the announcement that they would definitely be "recommitting" themselves to Carey, but she would also be releasing a brand new album sometime this year.
Carey & Epic will be partnering together with her record label Butterfly MC & the Sony Music Entertainment label to release a new album.
LA Reid spoke with people of the press stating:
"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 with her brilliance as a songwriter, producer, & performer par excellence. Mariah's chart records have established her enduring place in music history, a position that is cherished & supported by her loyal fans worldwide. I look forward to building upon all of Mariah's success for years to come."
MC chimed in & had this to say:
"I am putting my heart & soul into making more new music. I am so thrilled for this next chapter & to continue working with, & for, everyone that I love."
