Multi-platinum star Mariah Carey has inked an exclusive joint partnership of Butterfly MC Records and Epic Records, a division of Sony Music Entertainment. Terms of the agreement call for additional repertoire by the artist, beginning with a new studio album expected later this year.
“To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career,” said LA Reid, Chairman and CEO, Epic Records. “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 am putting my heart and soul into making more new music,” said Carey. “I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love."
The announcement extends the long-term association between Epic and Mariah Carey, who was personally signed to the label by Reid in 2015.
In addition to the partnership, Carey is set to return to her Las Vegas residency in July and will embark on a North American summer tour with Lionel Richie.
