Mariah Carey Hidden Somewhere In "Triumphant (Get ‘Em)"

Pop star takes a backseat to Rick Ross and Meek Mill in disappointing comeback single.

“Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” the first single from Mariah Carey’s first new album in two years, is a pretty big disappointment if you come to Mariah Carey songs hoping to hear, well, Mariah Carey. The singer is relegated to hook girl status in her own comeback single, and spends the first half of the tune cooing in the background while Rick Ross and Meek Mill deliver so-so verses. Bleh. Aside from the tepid inspirational lyrics about “reaching for the stars” tying into Carey’s new gig as an American Idol judge, it’s hard to grasp why this was chosen as a lead single. Wouldn’t it be better if she returned with something more like Adele? This sounds like it’s been hanging around in the back of her closet since 2008.
