L.A. Reid Gets Brutally Honest About Mariah Carey's New Single Infinity

no title

It could be a record company exec expecting the best from his artist, a boss trying to be realistic about his employees, or a family member just tellin' it like it is.

But whatever the angle, L.A. Reid is being brutally honest about Mariah Carey's latest single, Infinity.

After the 45-year-old singer performed at the Billboard Music Awards for the first time in over 15 years last weekend, label boss Reid spoke to Billboard Magazine on Monday and shared his ​very realistic expectations for the legendary singer's future.

The Epic Records CEO told the mag:

More Iggy Azalea Drama! Looks Like Nick Jonas & Tinashe Won't Be Going On Tour With Her After All!

no title

We honestly did not expect this!

As we previously reported, Iggy Azalea was having conflicts with her management team that postponed her Great Escape Tour until the Fall.

Well, it looks like her boycott against social media has angered more than just her reps, because Nick Jonas and Tinashe will no longer be touring with Iggy at all!!!

The tour was supposed to start on April 14, but now that things won't get rolling until at least September, it looks like Iggy is going to have to find some new opening acts.

Yikes!

As of now, there are no replacements for the Jealous singers, but we're sure it's going to be hard for Def Jam to find people as hot as Nick and Tinashe.

Is There Trouble? Rihanna Switches Record Labels!! All The Details HERE!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteJay ZBusiness BlitzDrakeGIFs

jay z rihanna record label roc nation

Very happy for her…but we also smell some serious beef cooking!

After fulfilling her long contract with Def Jam, Rihanna has inked a deal with Jay Z’s Roc Nation record label!

Rumors of the switch began swirling this morning, when some clever peeps noticed RiRi was under Def Jam's "Legacy" section on their website—thus hypothesizing that she decided to switch major labels, leaving them behind for good.

Sources have also learned that the change might've actually occurred in April 2013, when Jay partnered Roc Nation with Universal Music Group…

But we have no confirmation from Rihanna or her camp on the matter.

While the switch makes sense, we couldn't help but feel like the deal might get in the way of Ri and Drake's budding relationship!

Drizzy and Jay have had an ongoing fondu and art fueled feud for months now, and the Take Care singer does have his own OVO Sound label—so we're wondering why she didn't sign with him.

So curious as to where her loyalties are!

It's understandable to stick with Jay because he signed her in 2005, but we can't help but wonder how Drake must be feeling!

We are SO confused!!

After Mariah Carey kinda admitted to Billboard mag that she'd be doing a Beyoncé-type release for her latest untitled album, the songstress is taking it all back…

Or at least her record label is!

According to Laura Swanson, Def Jam's exec VP of media, the album will be released in a VERY traditional way—with a physical copy and digital download available the same day.

She said:

Kim Kardashian took it all off…her YouTube page that is!

Apparently, record execs over at Def Jam Records got an always-mad reputation after finding out that Kanye West's music video for Bound 2 had gone up on Kim's YouTube without their permission.

Kanye has since been told to tell Kim to take it down, which was bound 2 happen.

Although it's off her site, according to a source, the execs were not happy to deal with this problem:

Kanye West Needs Church’s Permission For One Of His Tracks! Will He Get It In Time For Yeezus Release??

wenn20332763(1)

Kanye West and his peeps should’ve known that an album called Yeezus would come with its fair share of dramz!!

Apparently Kanye is an uberperfectionist and is driving Def Jam executives “crazy” with last min changes, additional tracks, and legal issues galore.

No wonder the album cover looked so slapped together!! ‘Ye has been dealing with other, more important musical matters (and probably will be up until the very last minute), so it looks like there was simply not a lot of time to spend on the album art this year.

A source revealed:
