Mariah Carey might sign to Sony Music in 2012

LA Reid and Doug Morris aren’t the only power players leaving the Universal Music Group for Sony Music. In what is possibly one of the most shocking moves in music since Janet Jackson parted ways with Island Def Jam, Mariah Carey will also be leaving UMG to return to Sony.

Carey, who became the best-selling act on Columbia Records in less than 8 years, left Sony in 2000 following her tumultuous divorce from the company’s then head Tommy Mottola and signed a record-setting yet short-lived $80 million deal with Virgin Records. She then joined UMG in 2002 after the failure of her ‘Glitter’ movie and soundtrack which led Virgin to buy out her contract for over $28 million.

The diva has only 1 album left to deliver for UMG and will reportedly release the project by the end of this year. Other records Carey put forward while signed to the company include the 6x platinum ‘The Emancipation of Mimi’ which was co-executive produced by Reid.

This results of this decision could be incredibly good or catastrophically bad for Carey. The real question is which label under the Sony umbrella is best suited for her?

J Records is the home of her longtime chart rival Whitney Houston and most of the female R&B acts signed have not enjoyed the platinum success or heavy radio airplay that Carey hungers. With Ciara currently experiencing public difficulty with Jive (where Reid is most likely to lead), Beyonce dominating Columbia and Christina Aguilera on RCA, this will be a tricky decision indeed.


Well the good news for the lambs is that Mariah will be dropping a new album before the end of the year. Her last non-Christmas album was a classic. Nick Cannon is also dropping a new album this year. The twins will have some very hard working parents.
