The move marks a return to the agency for Carey, who was repped by CAA during the 1990s.

Carey is working on a new album for Island Def Jam and her MonarC imprint with such producers as Kanye West, James Poyser, Swizz Beats, Scott Storch and R. Kelly.

Carey, who received critical acclaim for her performance in "Wisegirls," also is looking at various film projects. She also has an illustrated children's book about a biracial orphan girl in the works.

The singer signed to Universal Music Group's Island Def Jam in 2002 for a three-album deal with an option for a fourth, plus her MonarC imprint. Her move to UMG came only six months after EMI paid Carey $49 million to leave the label.
