Mariah Carey has parted ways with Roc Nation after three and a half years. According to The Sun, Mariah quit JAY-Z’s management company after a “huge fight” between the artists about the future of Carey’s career, which reportedly led her to seek new management.
“Mariah and Jay had an explosive meeting which did not go well at all,” a source close to the situation told the Sun. “She has made it clear she wants nothing more to do with him and has called it quits with Roc Nation. She will formally depart in the next few weeks.
“It is a shame because they had done some great work in the last few years,” the source added. “But this meeting couldn’t have gone much worse. Mariah has been talking to other managers and thinks she has found someone who she feels has full belief in her as she takes her next steps.”
However, another source close to the situation tells The Daily Mail that claims of a fallout between Mariah and JAY-Z are “simply not true.” “Mariah’s relationship with Roc Nation ended amicably and Mariah and JAY-Z are on great terms,” said the source.
Carey is said to be working on “a heavily R&B-influenced album” and another world tour set for 2021. She has already been removed from the list of acts that are represented by Roc Nation.
