(AllHipHop News) Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri have been working together for years, but according to reports the partnership has officially come to an end. Dupri will no longer serve as MiMi’s manager.

“I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work,” Dupri told Billboard. “I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”

Dupri also served as the executive producer for Carey’s latest album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse. The project underperformed commercially, only selling 58,000 copies in its opening week. That was the lowest first week total for a studio album in the singer’s career.

Carey is now reportedly working with music business veteran Kevin Liles. The former Def Jam executive recently teamed with Lyor Cohen and Todd Moscowitz to create the new label 300.

      Probably….he’s not her manager anymore…he’ll probably still produce tracks for her.

    Maybe the reason the last album didn’t sell very well is the audience found others to gravitate to. Nowadays when veteran artists don’t succeed with their projects the finger pointing begins to find someone to blame. Truth is the audience may have outgrown you. For an entertainer that’s hard to hear and even harder to deal with.

      nah. When u have fan base as large as hers its poor product (and or wrong promotion) that stops the fans from buying ur album.

      She should be doing Cher numbers – she needs to evole her style and her music and “grow”…

      50 cent take note.

        True that. Her sound and image have become stagnant. Hopefully, the departure of JD will open the door to some new sound.

    Man its gotta suck to be an established platinum selling singer and/or producer and yield 58,000 units in the 1st week. I mean its ok for Mariah cuz her bread is long and she can always tour or do Vegas, but its still gotta hurt that ego.

  • Blck46fl

    Her last project didn’t sell cause the bitch hasn’t been touring. She went years without putting out an album and performing, don’t she realize that’s the other female singers putting in work day in and day out?? SMH Lyor going to con her ass out of money just like dame and others say he do

    ALL records require a commitment for PROMO and MC has ALWAYS done her part tirelessly & successfully in past except on TWO occasions:
    Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel — had the misfortune to share key promo time with her commitment to PRECIOUS— as the most famous cast member she effectively did her part with media at her albums expence. The movie was a big hit and eventual Oscar winner….
    The Elusive Chanteuse—- Hardly any promo at all & abandoned singles got no radio/media push from the label…. unsurprising low album sales……
    MC delivers another quality album but it gets ignored commercially.
