Def Jam spokesman Peter LoFrumento says:
"This is a major comeback for Mariah and its probably going to be the music comeback story of the entire year. What Mariah has done is she has gone from being where she was last year to being at the top of her game again and we are all very excited about it," LoFrumento said.
"There is a risk attached to everything you do in this business
but the fact is that an artist of her calibre, a gifted vocalist
and an incredibly talented songwriter, is what you want when you
sign an artist. You have all those things in Mariah Carey and
everyone is really looking forward to getting into the studio,
rolling up their sleeves and getting down to making a great
record." LoFrumento said.
