Listen to Mariah Carey on iHeartRadio

Jermaine Dupri and Mariah Carey are joining forces for a new management deal.  Mariah Carey has enlisted the So So Def Recordings founder as her new manager. 

The pair previously teamed up for Mariah's hit "We Belong Together," which managed to top the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for 14 non-consecutive weeks.

In a statement, J-D says an artist of Mariah's caliber "should be doing everything imaginable."  While he admits that others have likely said that about Mariah, he says he will execute those plans in ways no one else has imagined.  Dupri adds that he and Carey have a "bond that surpasses music."  

Mariah is planning to release her latest album The Art of Letting Go sometime this year.
