Are Mariah Carey and JAY-Z about to go into business?
According to sources, the answer is… “yes.”
Dive below for details…
As widely reported, Mimi and controversial manager Stella Bulochnikov severed ties recently after a rollercoaster three year partnership that included a trashy reality series and “that” New Years Eve performance.
In the immediate aftermath it was being touted that Carey had tapped boyfriend Bryan Tanaka to steer her career. But that doesn’t seem to be the case.
According to Page Six, the diva is signing with Jay’s Roc Nation to manage her career moving forward. It reportedly forms part of a broader reboot for the 47-year old, who is said to be installing all new everything – from lawyer to assistants, to management.
If the Roc deal is indeed taking place, it’d see the legend join a roster that includes Rihanna and DJ Khaled.
It is believed that she is still signed with Epic Records, after inking a deal last year engineered by LA Reid who departed the label soon after. Carey’s long-promised album debut for the imprint has yet to materialize.
Perhaps, with this new management situation, it will in the year to come.
We’re all for it!
Mariah’s hit-making days may be behind her (although never-say-never), but there’s no reason why she can’t be an album and touring force.
As such, if the Roc are up for the task of getting her business, branding, and perception in a better place, then we more than approve. Do you? Let us know below…
