Music producer Jermaine Dupri is joining Mariah Carey’s management team.

A representative for Carey confirmed the news on Monday. They have collaborated on hits like Always Be My Baby, Don’t Forget About Us and We Belong Together, which was named song of the decade and is one of the most popular songs of all time.

Carey said in a statement that she and Dupri “have a bond that surpasses music.”

The singer is recording a new album called The Art of Letting Go. The first single, the Miguel-featured #Beautiful, was released in May and peaked at No 15 in the US chart.

Dupri has written and produced for Usher, Monica and Destiny’s Child. He has had success with acts like Kris Kross, Xscape, Bow Wow and Jagged Edge on his So So Def label.
