The singer returns to the Sony fold and reunites with Antonio "L.A." Reid.
The ink is dry on Mariah Carey's new recording contract with Epic Records, a spokesperson for the Sony label confirms.
As first reported by Billboard on Jan. 30, the singer is reteaming with Antonio "L.A." Reid for a multi-album deal that would begin with a greatest-hits set to coincide with her upcoming residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Dubbed "#1's," the concert series booked by Creative Artists Agency begins May 6 and will include all 18 of Carey's Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers, from 1990's "Vision of Love" to 2008's "Touch My Body." Likewise, her forthcoming album for Epic is expected to feature updates and possibly duets of her classic songs.
