It goes without saying that ol’ Mimi has rehired her usual “re-touchers”, whose comedic brush stays as all-round hilarious as ever. That said, find out when you can hear the track after the jump…

According to Mariah herself, the fiercly anticipated track will receive it’s world premiere…

    She could afford to tone it down a bit and while it isn’t fair to judge the Rick Ross snippet of this song, it sounds a bit too urban/future flop in the making for my tastes.

    Yasss Photoshopped for the gods. I don’t care Mariah Carey is up thier in age and could use a little help (BESIDES SHE TOOK MILLION OF NATURAL PICS WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG) . Anyways, I hope this single is nice & ghetto and poppin’ cause I stan for dat s***! Also, Mariah Carey I hope you give us “TRIUMPHANT” vocals runs on this new album, instead of that whispering s***. Mariah Carey you are in the RIHANNA GHETTO TRASH GENERATION now so please bring it shadddy-nesss and all! You are the second best selling female artist of all time (behind that old p**** stank MANdonna). 200,000,000+ records sold, 2-Diamond selling albums. 3- albums to sell over 20 million copies, 18 number 1 hits (which 17 that you wrote & produced), the last of that golden VOICE era, 9- albums that have all sold over 10 million copies each! YOU ARE A LEGEND SOO LETS BRING IT!!!!! P.s. Rihanna stans! Since yall always bragging about her charts records. “We Belong Together” top the charts for 14 weeks & “One Sweet Day” still holds the record for the most weeks at number 1… 16 f****** weeks! I’ve been a fan since “Heartbreaker” her 15th number 1 (That she wrote herself) Instead of having 20 million people write her s*** for her…. RIHANNA! I swear Rihanna better be happy she got them musical genius behind her cause if she didn’t ummmmm! Rihanna nor Beyonce (even tho Beyonce is the greatest female performer of all time, I dont know what Rihanna is…) can match Mariah Carey’s musical genius. She wrote “Vision Of Love” & “Vanishing” at the age of 16!!! Genius. Rihanna is like 24 years old and is a terrible singer and horrible performer THIS IS YOUR PRIME b**** AND YOU SHOULD BE SLAYING THEM VOCALS AND PERFORMANCES! SHE LUCKY SHE IS PRETTY… Because when Mariah Carey was 24 SHE f****** SLAYEDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!! & On top of that she was beautiful! NATURALLY!

    The cover is a NO. I guess Ms.Thang will never learn. Mariah has NEVA been s*** so in essence she should try to sell HER voice and not her badly enhanced body.

    Ajanni Replied:

    Furthermore, those awful tube dresses are a result of her wideanflass (New word=Wide, flat, ass). That link sausage look has plagued her since the beginning of the 2000′s and pretty much is the downfall of her career. Yes, when you have it, flaunt it, but Ms. Thang’s body was never s*** yet she tried to sell it anyway. Grow up Mariah and give us good music. Even with the downfall of her voice from her over indulgence in alcohol, she sounds better than many of the pop artists out there today, excluding Beyonce. She needs a good team of stylist’s to put her back on top because Humpty Dumpty is broken.

    know matter how many colors they come in and alterations are made to them, nobody is here for those out-dated tube dress anymore, if the were even here for them in the first place. We want you to succeed, and as the best-selling female artist ever, you can do it. But the way things are going know (Meek Mill and Rick Ross features, annoying husband who can’t shut the f*** up about YOUR career, and you laying on couches in teaser shots…things aren’t looking to promosing. Imma round up a prayer circle and maybe sacrifice a few Lambs so that you can get it together. Love you DIVA!

    It’s obvious shew trying to rehash the Emancipation era. We’ve all seen what happens when some artists try to rehash certain eras, it backfires. I can see Mariah ending like Jennifer, using AI to promote her new music, the songs will be hits but her album sales will be crap. Then release another greatest hits.

    @Suicide Blonde I am fairly new to this site (1-2 months) and when I first started reading the comments lots of people were mean to you and I didn’t understand why. But on every Mariah post you have something negative/shady to say about her then turn around and say you respect her. You are always looking for trouble and that is why you are always attacked. People can be mean, but in your case you are just really annoying and deserving. If you don’t like MC why do you always comment on her trends (you always have something negative to say).

    P.S. Stick to Britney, Rihanna, J-lo, Katy Perry, Madonna while we the REAL music fans will stick to Mariah, Whitney, alicia keys, etc..

    Suicide Blonde Replied:

    MC.
    Haha…let me tell you this, you are new here so, first, this is the game you have to play on this site, if you say something negative to my fav. then your fav. would be shade, that’s how it works here, i have fun in this site but honestly i don’t hate any artist besides Bieber, I little confession, my shades to Mariah is because a friend here (JOHNVIDAL) is always hating on Madonna or J.Lo, i do the same with Mariah hoping he’s coming for my ass, i love when his mad but it’s all for fun, don’t take things seriously in this site.

    MC Replied:

    @Suicide Blonde in all the time I have been here some people are just very mean spirited. Sorry if I came too hard, but to stan for people like Rihanna + Madonna (no shade) and criticize MC’s music and clothing is just too much. I am cool with other artists like Beyonce, Rihanna, J-lo, and Madonna so i try not to comment negatively about them, but when some people wanna say this and that about Mariah and yet they stan for people who don’t have as much talent, accomplishment, impact, etc as her is just a no-no….

    Suicide Blonde Replied:

    Honestly i’m only here for Madonna, that’s my woman but i do like others too, of course they’re not in the same level of Whitney, Celine or Mariah but it’s all for fun.

    Samantha is such a wannabe Perez Hilton. Does anyone notice how the only time she mentions photo-shop, is when it comes down tp Britney and Mariah.

    I don’t recall her mentioning how incredibly “white” a certain someone looked on the front of her last album cover. Oh that’s right…Samantha stans hard for her. Unbiased blog my ass.

    Anywhoo. I have to admit that I’m not too excited about Mariah’s first single. For a married mother of two, I’m not sure if an urban song featuring rappers is the best choice. Even if the song is a hit, and what is up with Nick Cannon directing her videos now? Mariah needs to resume working with professional directors again and cut this corny nonsense with Nick. The vid should have been directed by Brett Ratner.

She doesn’t feel the need to throw on a costume to get your attention and pretend to be a ‘cowboy’ for one week, ‘a spiritual guru’ the next, or an ice cream cone.
    Funny, ppl seem to be thinking that the performers playing Halloween on a daily basis are “the true artists” … I never thought wearing a wig would make me more of myself then wearing my natural hair, but some seem to apply that theory to performers.

    HOTTTT.
    HOTTTTT.
    She’s coming hard.
    She’s gonna change the course of Top40, just like she did in ’95 with the first rap verse on a Pop track (Fantasy ft. O.D.B) and again in ’05 with It’s Like That.
    Mariah’s been doing the R&B Urban thang for 17 years already (longer then the 6 years she stuck to only pop) so why are people still surprised or disappointed when she features a rapper?! It’s her thing, she invented her lane and now she runs her town.

    You’re an idiot if you truly believe that “Fantasy” was the first time a rap verse was interjected on a pop. That was happening before Mariah even came out. Shush.

    Ya, it was happening. But not at this level. She made that s*** Top40 fool.

    You think a member of Wu Tang was getting solo top 40 exposure before this. Hells no.

    CzarM Replied:

    Please. Michael Jackson worked with Heavy D. on “Jam” and Janet worked with Chuck D. on “New Agenda” while Mariah was still singing Celine-ish pop ballads. New Kids on the Block, C&C Music Factory and BlackBox were combining pop and hip hop while Mariah was still new. Michel’le and Mary J. Blige were mixing hip hop and rappers with their sound before her too. Hell, Sinead O’Connor and MC Lyte did a track together before Mariah was even out.

    The TRUE pioneers for Pop mixed with Hip Hop were Blondie (“Rapture”) and Chaka Khan (“I Feel For You.”) Both were pop songs that combined rap and hip hop and became iconic when Mariah was still a kid.

    Mariah’s fans need to quit acting like she pioneered something in this regard, because she didn’t. All “Fantasy” was was Mariah hopping on already existing trend.

    Thanks for the music history lesson; nice review, not adding to anything I don’t already know … like i said, Yes it was happening, but no it was Not Top40. Give credit where credits due dude. Your Grandma was rocking out to ballads like ‘Hero’ and then ‘Fantasy’ with ODB because of Mariah.

    Inspiration runs deep friend. Mariah Carey’s sound has always had flavours from as far back at the ’50s. What we’re talking about here is the first single by a female artist to debut at #1, and it featured a rapper. That’s impressive.

    … It was this song that completely destroyed the Rap/Pop walls. Mary J. was working hard for years, MJ did his bit (ignoring the New Kids reference and ‘rap’) Like it or not, It was a shock to see ‘Miss Sweetie’ Mariah Carey with such a hardcore rapper (in ’95). I don’t recall Whitney, Celine, Paula Abdul, Gloria Estefan, Cyndi Lauper, or any of these Women pioneering a meld of sound like this. Where would JLo, Ashanti, Ciera or Beyonce be without this kinda example of what can be.

    No one’s the be-all-and-end-all of music. Everyone feeds off everyone’s muses and energy; but at points in history there are events that make one take full notice of a movement, and this was one of those point in Rap/Pop history.

    CzarM Replied:

    Hell, Paula Abdul recorded “Opposites Attract,” which had a rapper. And that song topped the Hot 100 (AND had a creative music video) while Mariah was still being groomed for her debut. And Whitney’s “My Name Is Not Susan” featured a rap verse by Monie Love on a remix.

    The point being is that Mariah wasn’t the first like the OP said. It was around and thriving before her. Plenty of pop singers were working with rappers before “Fantasy.”

    Only someone who is completely ignorant to music history would think that it was Mariah who innovated Pop music with Hip hop. I don’t even know how someone who knew what they were talking about could dare say that with a straight face.

    We are having two different conversation now, man. You are talking about the build up & points up to an amazing Moment in Music History. And I’m talking about Thee Moment. That’s all – I don’t disagree (said for the 3rd time) But it was that moment, that song, that artist. #peace.

    I’m not a Mariah fan — at all. I hate her personality and think she’s fake. But she’s much, much closer to my taste in music than damn Katy Perry, Rihanna, Gaga and the rest of that cheesy dance/pop b******* that’s contaminating the airways for these past 3-4 years. So far that reason alone I’m drawing back my claws and am gonna try to not greet her with the hostility that I usually do.

    Same with Brandy. Back in the mid-late 1990s, Mariah and Brandy topped my list of artists I couldn’t stand. I literally wanted both of their heads on a stick. But sadly, I’m so thirsty for some R&B normalcy to return to the scene that I’m willing to overlook all those years of animosity I built up where they were concerned in hopes that they can divert attention from “Pound the Alarm,” “Call Me Maybe” and “Wide Awake.”

    All Mariah’s promotional photos are ridiculously phony. Yes, every celebrity is airbrushed, but she takes it to astronomical heights. With her it’s not even airbrushing, it’s total photoshop. She may as well be holding the statue of liberties torch. That’s how unreal this picture is.

    This song will surely have a tie-in with the Olympics in some sort of fashion. I mean, come on… it’s titled “Triumphant” and it’s being released during the Olympic Games. Duh.

    I’m a huge Mariah fan, have been since 1997, but I honestly cant say I’m excited about this new song. The featurings remind me of Obsessed and every other underwhelming lead single shes released in the last 10-12 years. If Whitney was able to release a classy ballad like I Look to You, why cant Mariah?

    because believe it or not i look to you even though it was a great song nobody really paid attention to it radio stations barely played it it was under performed but million dollar bill by her was way more successful i hate to say it but ballads arent whats up any more if anything mariah is trying to get in touch with her younger fan while also keeping her older fans that has grown with her and since daydream mariah’s lead singles are always a nice uptempo with some collaboration on it thats what shes known for and its still summer so a nice lil upbeat wouldnt hurt
