ISLAND RECORDS

 

THE CD THAT I PICKED UP WAS MARIAH CAREY’S NEW ALBUM: E=MC2. I ALWAYS WAS UNDER THE IMPRESSION THAT MARIAH CAREY WAS APART OF SO SO DEF, WHICH IS JERMAINE DUPRI’S RECORD LABEL…HOWEVER SHE ACTUALLY BELONGS TO ISLAND RECORDS!

Island Records is a record label that was founded by British record producers in Jamaica. It was based in England for many years, but is now owned by Universal Music Group of the United States, and is operated through The Island Def Jam Music Group.

Universal Music Group (UMG) is the largest business group and family of record labels in the recording industry. With a 25.5% market share, it is one of the Big Four record labels. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vivendi; Universal Studios, the movie studio, was sold in part to NBC, which itself is part of GE.
