Mariah Carey, Usher, & More Celebrate Jermaine Dupri’s Induction Into Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Published: Friday 15th Jun 2018 by Sam

Jermaine Dupri has crafted classics for countless acts, but two of the most notable – Mariah Carey and Usher – were on-hand to help him celebrate perhaps his biggest achievement yet: induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. 

Sponsored by Moet & Chandon, the New York event dually honored Dupri’s SHOF entry and the 25th anniversary of his So So Def imprint.

Over the course of the 45-year-old’s illustrious career, he has co-written colossal hits such as ‘We Belong Together’ [Carey], ‘Burn’ [Usher], and ‘The First Night’ [Monica].

And though Dupri’s reach spans many genres such, his releases as an artist have fallen under the Hip-Hop umbrella. Hence, making him the second Hip-Hop ever act to receive a spot (after JAY-Z became the first last year).

Toasting to her longtime friend and collaborator following the ceremony, Carey shared the snap above with the caption:

Congratulations @jermainedupri on getting inducted into the @songwritershof!! See ya in the studio to continue making magic ??? #WeBelongTogether #Honey#AlwaysBeMyBaby #ManyMore

    Absolutely deserved! Not only does JD make great songs, he makes classics that stand the test of time! His style in one word – FRESH! His songs are never overdone or fussy…just the right elements and that special something only he makes! ? My favorite JD songs? All of them to be honest! ?? But Jump is ?, You Make Me Wanna is pure ? and Always Be My Baby is sublime!

    I swear Mariah never ages. She’s THE only active/relevant icon that we have left, so we all need to appreciate that more and more.,

    And why would Usher dare bring a cigar around a vocalist like Mariah …. so disrespectful of him! Ugh!
