New York: Mariah Carey`s latest album, ` The Art of Letting Go`, which she was due to release this month, might be her last with Island Def Jam, it has been revealed.

The singer has decided to take this step after delays and a lack of promotion and support by the recording label, the New York Post reported.

Music insiders told the publication that the album`s first single, `hash Beautiful,` was not heavily promoted by IDJ, and Carey was disappointed by the label`s efforts.

Some insiders also blame the lack of attention to Carey on the fact that label execs were busy focusing on Kanye West`s album "Yeezus."

Meanwhile, a rep for IDJ told the publication that they love Carey and her music and have fully supported her every step of the way here at Island Def Jam.

The rep said that `hash Beautiful` had an unprecedented promotional push and has already sold nearly 1 million singles.

A rep for Carey added that the singer couldn`t be happier with the support from the label and is looking forward to finishing and releasing her record.
