After much speculation between fans and blogs, it’s now confirmed that Jermaine Dupri will in fact be Mariah Carey’s new manager for her upcoming album. The news was confirmed last night by ‘So So Def’s’ official twitter account.

The duo have been working together professionally since 1994. Together they have written and produced hits such as “Always Be My Baby”, “We Belong Together” and “Shake It Off”. Although this looks great on paper, many fans worry that he may not have what it takes to guide Mariah to the top spot. The legendary diva, who’s upcoming album is set to be released ‘soon’ (her words) will have to be managed very carefully. At this point in her career she needs to deliver solid performances, quality material and promote directly to her target audience.

I'm nervous about this, what experience does Jermaine have of managing? Him and MC are great friends, but managing is a whole other ball game!

Randy Jackson and Mariah made great music together, yet as her manager he achieved little.

he ruined Janet's career with the promo for 20YO one of her weakest albums except for take care enjoy & daybreak.
also diclipline era except for feedback had no major hits.
and the recorded company stopped promoting it.
really think this is a bad idea Mariah's last two albums haven't made an impact even though I loved merry Christmas II you.
shame she was pregnant at the time and couldn't promote it as much I was hoping she would work with other producers.
I know that she has r Kelly & walter but I really don't want to hear another album or song which is a duplicate of we belong together/don't forget about us.

This is a music forum, what's the problem?

I'm quite sure people remember Mariah Carey, her last single went Platinum in the US and was a top 30 in the UK.

"Who was she again" -oh come on, Mariah Carey is hardly Christina Milian. She's a legend.

*Not trying to shade Christina Milian, but she's an example of an artist once popular who is at present more like "hmm...where is she now?"

At the rate they collaborate, you'd think so. She's written tons of songs with him, some of her biggest too: Always Be My Baby, We Belong Together, It's Like That et al.
But Randy Jackson has been her manager for many years now.

Anyway, I'm really frustrated Mariah has done this. Jermaine isn't a manager, he's a writer/producer and I can't see this doing wonders for her career. I'm sure she has the money and the offers for someone much more qualified and would do a better job.

It must be at least 10 years since I've heard the name Jermaine Dupri! If it helps her career then that's good. Some of my favourite Mariah songs have came from the mid to late 2000's. She can still pull it off.

She'd be better off managing herself or getting Nick to do it.

I just want the album already! Loved the last 2. Didn't expect the Christmas album to be so good.
