Mariah Carey's "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" Single: Listen

Mariah Carey is bucking the trend of semi-fallen divas who have turned to reality show judging gigs for a career boost by unleashing her new single well ahead of her stint on American Idol. And that single is the lead offering from her upcoming 14th album LadyBraceletMimiFeatherSparkleTwirl —  or at least that's what I'm calling it.

For the most part, Mariah's part on the inspriation-leaning "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" is a pretty stellar throwback to Philly soul jams of yore. Unfortunately, Mimi doesn't actually rev up her shrieking until nearly three minutes into the song.

So instead we get shit raps from Meek Mill first, then Rick Ross. In other words, Carey is a guest on her own song, reduced to choral duties and one verse at the end of the thing.

At least she does her whistle-register shit as the tune fades out. And this track is still 10 times better than anything off that last album, ShimmerNecklaceBabyHoHoBunny.

    I was expecting something like It`s Like That meets Hero, and what I got was something that reminds me of the Glitter era where she was a guest artist on her own tracks. Failant is even worse, she sang more in If We, Don`t Stop and LNADSML... 0/10
