We Belong Together: Mariah Carey Hires Jermaine Dupri To Be Manager

(AllHipHop News)  Jermaine Dupri as officially been signed on as Mariah Carey’s new manager. Dupri replaces longtime manager and former American Idol co-host Randy Jackson whom Carey severed ties with in May of this year.

Carey and Dupri have collaborated on numerous songs over the past decade, none bigger than the Billboard Song of the Decade “We Belong Togther from her 2005 multiplatinum album The Emancipation of Mimi. The song spent fourteen weeks atop the Billboard 100.

Jermaine Dupri I spoke on the merger in an official statement:

A multi-talented artist of Mariah’s caliber should be doing everything imaginable. I’m sure others have said this but not the way I intend to do it. For me, it’s about the execution.

Mariah Carey shared the warm sentiment:

 We have a bond that surpasses music. I am super excited about our merger because we have so many innovative ideas that I know will come to fruition

Carey’s upcoming fourteenth album, The Art Of Letting Go  was initially scheduled for a July 23rd released but was pushed back. No word on a release date but Carey’s rep Cindi Berger says Carey is in rare form:

I’ve never seen Mariah so passionate about what she will be revealing to her fans very, very soon.

    Why does America love Mariah Carey so much ?

    • Matt Swan

      Because unlike most singers, she can actually throw down. She doesn’t sound like the typical bubblegum artists out there, and she has a four octave singing range. She has been around since the early 90’s and has had success ever since. Her early songs are still sung by others today. Singers of today want to sing like her or Whitney; neither Whitnet RIP or Mariah wants to sing like anyone out today. And last, who in their right mind would not want to be Nick Cannon smashing those guts on a regular basis?

        then why has she lip synced for years? she can’t “throw down” or she would-and not bubblegum?? oh ninja pleeasssee she has perfume that smells like bubblegum and cotton candy-she was the first poptard image based flesh puppet created-Tommy’s answer to Clive promoting Whitney on a global market-she has always been a fake marketing gimmick

      • Matt Swan

        Any artist with a live show with a lot of dancing is going to lip synch. It’s just a given. That question should be asked to the rappers who have to play their entire cd’s with lyrics in the background as they do their show. As far as the throw down? Whitney’s time was mostly mid to late 80’s. She did the damn thing and knocked it out of the park with it. In the 90’s Miriah came, and I don’t think it was a “competitive” thing as you say rather than a passing of the torch from one great to the future. Note Whitney had only one major hit in the 90’s and that was “I will always love you”. And no she’s not a bubblegum singer, I’m a man. I don’t go around smelling perfume, so I’ll take your word for that. Any artist is someone’s marketing gimmick. That’s how trends are set, metrix are made and deciphered, and the next trend begins. There are very few female artists that will ever have the longevity that Whitney, Madonna, and Mariah have, and before someone screams Bey, the previous two did it all on their own, no backup singers needed. BTW Bey had NO danceshow and STILL lip-synched the national anthem at the inauguration. She should’ve let Aretha do it and take some notes

        Lol. U said dancing and Mariah in the same sentence. I stopped reading right there. Obviously u didn’t see the BET awards. They had her fat ass far from the front of the stage and she stood in one spot and lip singed the whole song. That was beyond embarrassing. Mariah never danced since niggas was doing the Tootsie Roll. She’s a legend, no doubt, but that Mariah Carey is long gone, and all we’re left with is a fat, arrogant, chain smoking diva, voided of talent.

      • Matt Swan

        Where did I mention dancing and Mariah in the same sentence? Maybe you should have reread it again. I didn’t see the BET awards, but lip synching the national anthem at the inauguration is infinitely worse, being that BET is a very small venue compared to an elected president being sworn in again which is on a global stage. It doesn’t matter is she never dances again, because she is proven talent. And if you call Mariah fat, then I’ll take her phat, arrogant, chain smoking a$$ anytime

        damn, I miss Whitney…

    I’m going to keep it 100. Jermaine Dupri is the only producer who can give Mariah those number one hits. He’s the perfect musical architect for her. JD got hits and mad niggas be hating on dude. Respect to JD.

    • Apollo Showtime

      Yeah dude is honestly legendary if you look at his track record in the music business. Niggas hate so hard but he really is our generations Berry Gordy/Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis

      • Matt Swan

        They look at his losses if you want to call them that, but have no idea how many jams this man has made in RnB and hip hop. You see the dude who was with Janet, dude who lost some stuff in bankruptcy and all in all it was all the excess stuff he didn’t need. Dude is an example of how to do it on your own, make a few millie along the way, and really put your city on the map. The Atl owes this cat a lot, more then it gives him credit for

    well MeMe is nothing without a huge studio production -piles of editing and someone else writing and producing her songs-she has been a big fat flounder ever since she got all high on herself and cut Tommy and Sony loose-yeah he controlled her career cause without the whole fake poptard “image maker” working for her she is pretty blah, meh over rated just an old fat stripper desperately clawing at the spotlight
