After having a relatively quiet couple of years, Mariah Carey is itching for a comeback. She’s definitely poised for one. Soon, she’ll be invading millions of households on a weekly basis thanks to her new gig as “American Idol” judge. Just in perfect time to promote her yet untitled 13th studio album. The singer pleased her little lambs by releasing”Triumphant (Get ‘Em)“, the lead cut from the album. Here’s what she said about the meaning of the song.
“I wrote TRIUMPHANT when I was going through a difficult time & it helped me get through it,” she said. “When u hear it, pay attention 2 the lyrics #WIN.”
Produced by Jermaine Dupri, the track features Rick Ross and Meek Mills providing some lyrical rhymes. If you like your Mariah with a little R&B and less dance pop, you’ll like the single. At first listen, I’m reminded of her “We Belong Together” era. Listen to the track below and see if you agree.
