British tabloid The Sun published a report on Friday in which a source claimed the hitmakers “had an explosive meeting” that led to her leaving Roc Nation, which she signed to in November 2017 after firing her former manager Stella Bulochnikov, and a “heavily R&B-influenced album” and world tour were in the works.
But on Monday (June 7), Mimi set the record straight while reminding people of one of her and Jay-Z’s most popular records, “Heartbreaker,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1999.”The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!!” she wrote on her socials with a 45-second snippet of their music video. “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! –Vamoose, sonofa*****’!'”
“Heartbreaker” isn’t the only hit Mimi and Hov have together: She lent her vocals to “Things That U Do” from his third studio album Vol. 3… Life & Times Of S. Carter. Three years later in 2002, MC tapped Jay-Z and Freeway on “You Got Me” from her ninth studio album, Charmbracelet, and they linked back up with Jeezy on the official remix of her Hot 100 No. 2 hit “Shake It Off” in 2005.
Since signing to Roc Nation, Carey has released her 30th anniversary album The Rarities, her best-selling memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey, and her AppleTV+ Christmas special Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special. Roc Nation boasts a stacked artist roster of Alicia Keys, Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Christina Aguilera, Normani, Moneybagg Yo, The-Dream, and more on its website, where Carey’s name is not found.
