The newly inked deal will begin with a greatest hits set in conjunction with Carey’s upcoming Las Vegas residency.
The singer’s forthcoming album with Epic will reportedly feature updates and potential duets of her classic hits.
Carey last released material through Sony in 1999 with Rainbow, which included the singles ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now)’.

The star’s 2014 album Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse was released through Def Jam Recordings.
The record reached number 3 in the US and number 14 in the UK but failed to secure a top ten single in either territory.
The ’80-favorite comes optioned in a trio of colors — black, blue and grey — each having been done up in fine nubuck. Tonal laces accompany across the threesome, as white midsoles then provide offset underneath.
A man spent hours watching a butterfly struggling to emerge from its cocoon. It managed to make a small hole, but its body was too large to get through it. After a long struggle, it appeared to be exhausted and remained absolutely still. The man decided to help the butterfly and, with a pair of scissors, he cut open the cocoon, thus releasing the butterfly. However, the butterfly’s body was very small and wrinkled and its wings were all crumpled. The man continued to watch, hoping that, at any moment, the butterfly would open its wings and fly away. Nothing happened; in fact, the butterfly spent the rest of its brief life dragging around its shrunken body and shriveled wings, incapable of flight. What the man out of kindness and his eagerness to help had failed to understand was that the tight cocoon and the efforts that the butterfly had to make in order to squeeze out of that tiny hole were Nature’s way of training the butterfly and strengthening its wings. Sometimes, a little extra effort is precisely what prepares us for the next obstacle to be faced. Anyone who refuses to make that effort, or gets the wrong sort of help, is left unprepared to fight the next battle and never manages to fly off to their destiny.” -Paulo Coelho
