The long-awaited (and much needed) video for Mariah Carey‘s ‘Triumphant’ arrived moments ago. Check out the Nick Cannon directed clip below…
Given that ol’ Mimi is fighting for her commercial relevancy these days, we’d have much preferred she duke it out in the ring herself instead of prancing around like she’s 20.
She’d have done herself a respectable service had served up a truly inspirational clip ala ‘Through The Rain’ to mirror the cut’s lyrics. Or better yet something fresh and out of the box. Yes, she looks stunning for 42, but why insist on force-feeding a sex appeal that vanished in 2001?
With the song sitting outside of the iTunes Top 100, this was Ms. Carey-Cannon’s shot at serving up a visual that’d grant the cut a sure-fire chance of rebounding. Yet, beyond the glitter and gloss, there’s not much to see here; a fact which could prove fatal given that the track itself has failed to move the masses on its own accord.
We patiently await what will, no doubt, be christened her new “first single”.
