Jermaine Dupri is reportedly Mariah Carey’s new manager, and he is set to manage the R&B diva as she preps her upcoming album entitled “The Art of Letting Go”.
Dupri addressed his plans for the singer in a statement during a press release:
“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, who was previously managed by ‘American Idol’s’ Randy Jackson, also released a statement regarding her relationship with Dupri.
“We have a bond that surpasses music, [and] I am super excited about our merger because we have so many innovative ideas that I know will come to fruition.”
Carey’s upcoming album, The Art of Letting Go, has no release date as of yet, but Carey has been in the studio with several artists of late, reportedly working hard on this album. Nas, Mike WiLL Made It, Miguel and Hit-Boy are among those artists and potential guests for the release.
The Art of Letting Go is slated to be the singer’s thirteenth studio album.
“#Beautiful”, the love ballad with Miguel was released in the summer, reportedly off this collection, and the song reached #4 in Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop chart in just a few weeks. Mariah Carey’s album is expected to be nothing short of fabulous so stay tuned in for more reports.
