So, things had been pretty quiet in Mariah-land recently, with the R&B diva understandably devoting much of her attention to the endless responsibilities thrust upon her as a new mother toridiculously good-looking twins.
But a quiet spring and summer look to be making way for a fall and winter filled with Mimi. On the heels of signing a whopping $18 million deal to join the judges’ panel of American Idol (more toys for #DemBabies–rejoice, everyone!), Carey has announced the release of her first new single in more than two years, “Triumphant (Get ‘Em).”
The track, which will serve as the lead single for her upcoming 14th studio album, is scheduled to hit the radio sometime today and will premiere on her website at 3:45 pm (ET). Tweeted Mariah about the Rick Ross and Meek Mill assisted tune, “I wrote TRIUMPHANT when I was going through a difficult time & it helped me get through it. When u hear it, pay attention 2 the lyrics #WIN.”
Well, then–perk those ears up, people, as you listen to a 30 second preview of the song below. Any super-skilled listeners out there hear a grunt from you-know-who at the end?!
