FROM Hello magazine

9 MAY 2002

Multi-platinum singer Mariah Carey, left without a record label after she was let go by EMI four months ago, has found a new home with Island Records. The new deal also includes a special perk for the star – she’ll be launching her very own label.

Mariah has already begun recording the new album for Island – whose artists range from Bon Jovi to Jay-Z – but has not yet named her new label.

Mariah was paid a £19 million severance from EMI in January, putting an end to her record-breaking £70-million, five-album contract after just one release. The lukewarm sales of Glitter, a soundtrack which accompanied the 32-year-old’s disappointing big screen debut of the same name, led to the label’s decision to drop Mariah from their roster of artists.

Though her new company says it’s “delighted Mariah has chosen Island for the next phase of her unprecedented careerâ€￾, they did not reveal the financial terms of the agreement.

The singer-turned-actress’ latest film, Wise Girls, premiered at this year’s Sundance film festival and will be screened this autumn on cable network HBO.
