Mariah Carey Launches Butterfly MC Records, Confirms 15th LP
Vocal legend, chaise-lounge enthusiast and now music mogul. Is there anything Mariah Carey can’t do? The 47-year-old now has her own imprint at Epic, the fabulously-titled Butterfly MC Records. Excitingly, the label’s first release will be Mimi’s 15th LP and it’s due this year. “To continue working with Mariah Carey at Epic has been another rewarding chapter of my career,” Chairman and CEO, LA Reid says of the venture. “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,” he continues. “I look forward to building upon all of Mariah’s success for years to come.” It sounds like the iconic diva is equally chuffed about the deal. “I am putting my heart and soul into making more new music,” Mimi says in a statement. “I am so thrilled for this next chapter and to continue working with, and for, everyone that I love.” The first taste of the album, “I Don’t,” arrived earlier this year.
