Mariah Carey signs to Epic Records

Mariah Carey has signed a record deal with Epic.

The news was confirmed to Billboard by a label rep.

The move marks a return to Sony for Carey, who left the company in the early 2000s to team up with Island.

The singer's first release under the new contract is expected to be a greatest hits collection.

The record will coincide with Carey's upcoming Las Vegas residency, which will open in May.

The US star's last album 'Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse' was released in 2014 and it reached No.3 in her native country.
