Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey became a pop phenom under the guidance of Columbia Records and eventually signed a $100 million deal with Virgin/EMI, but suffered so severely from exhaustion that she was bought out of her contract just months later. She emerged again on Island Records with the bounce back album, The Emancipation of Mimi.
