She’s Back: Mariah Carey Announces New Single ‘Triumphant’

Published: Saturday 21st Jul 2012 by Sam

After teasing fans with a Summer return, Mariah Carey has held true to her word by announcing her comeback single ‘Triumphant’. And this time, she’s enlisted some help.

Details after the jump…

Writing on Twitter moments ago, Mimi wrote:

“So I can finally announce to you that my new single is coming out early August! It’s called TRIUMPHANT (Get ‘Em) ft. Rick Ross & Meek Mill.

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


Yes! Here’s hoping Mimi serves up hot fire with this one, as her relevance to today’s charts (and audience) ultimately hangs on the success of this single. Still, as history has shown, the diva has the uncanny ability to deliver when the odds are stacked at their highest.

  2. Ugh July 21, 2012

    That pic is photoshopped for the GAWDS B****! lol Nice title but UGH i hate Rick Ross and Meek Mill.

    • Ice July 21, 2012

      At first I thought you said “nice titties”, lol.

    • Todd July 21, 2012

      its OLD!

  3. Siberian Prince July 21, 2012

    Yeesssssssss b****!!! The REAL King B b****! Im so excited cuz im sooooo tired of Rhianna talentless ass. Yes i said it, talentless. Mariah give us some real music!

    • beyonce Manager July 21, 2012

      please i love her but beyonce will i always be the the KING B

      • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

        Beyonce could never be a King. That stuff is dumb.

        It’s all about Mariah, because we know there would be know Beyonce without her.

      • RICHANDBLACK11(JUST LIKE BEY) July 21, 2012

        No shade Mariah was cute in the 90’s and that comeback cd in the early 2000’s…..No shade Mariah just don’t do if for me anymore BEYONCE will always be KING BEYONCE, and in that ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

      • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

        No, dear. Mariah was never ‘cute’. She IS epic, dating back to her debut in 1990. Don’t disrespect the vocal legend by comparing her to Beyonce. Mariah is a REAL songwriter, REAL producer, REAL everything. You’re doing yourself a disservice and setting yourself up for failure already.


      • China July 21, 2012

        B**** you are sad. The closest Bey will ever be to a King was if she had been in the “King’s Speech” with her illiterate ass. Mariah has sold more albums, had more #1 singles, and more influence than BeyInspired ever will. Now bow peasant ass the Real King slays Bey’s flammable box cutter wig. Beyonce couldn’t even be a court jester in Mariah’s Kingdom!

    • Noel July 21, 2012

      How can Mariah be KING B, though? Wouldn’t it be King M….just saying. lol.

      • China July 21, 2012

        KING B****, LIKE LIL KIM QUEEN B(B****)

  4. Angelica July 21, 2012

    It should just feature Rick , take Meek off

    • XoMoDe July 21, 2012

      Hell, take Mariah off too…

  5. @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012




  6. BeyhiveYourself July 21, 2012

    Oh Mimi girl don’t bother putting out this tired single. I can no longer bear your stiff dance moves, tired finger wagging and pre recorded whistle notes which you haven’t been able to hit since your tits stood upright.

    the only way this song will win is if its as catchy as the venereal disease you almost gave Eminem when he was tappin that cardboard ass of yours.

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      GORL please. Beyonce’s wearing braids and parading a child she never carried around New York City. Your opinion is invalid. I’m only here for real singer-songwriters with legacy. Mariah has nothing to prove to you fools anymore. She could have stopped at ‘SLAYDREAM’ but she’s doing it for the fans.


      • Britt July 21, 2012

        Do you have proof that Beyonce didn’t carry her child? I’ll wait……….. It has become so boring to see people still bring that up, come with something new next time.

    • Todd July 21, 2012

      how dare you write such s*** about MY queen?

      • beyonce Manager July 22, 2012

        B**** don’t compare beyonce and mariah carey cause they both are queens. Dumb ass you making us #BeyHive look bad by disrespecting Mariah

  7. nando July 21, 2012

    Wohooooooo…im not worried about meek mill being on it..every mimi track makes irelevant artist be relevant! I bet after we hear the single it will be firrreee!!

  8. 16GrammysAndABabyToMatch July 21, 2012

    it makes me laugh when people thank for Mariah for putting rappers on her music when it was she who benefited from the street cred they gave her in the 90S after she embraced the urban scene.

  9. Owen July 21, 2012

    I’m not even a BIG mariah fan, but I’m so ready for this. I’m more anticipated for her new album than my actual favorites gaga, kesha, & rihanna.

    I just have a feeling that mariah is gonna slay.

  10. JJFan1814 July 21, 2012

    If it’s not catchy she doesnt stand a chance…….

    I can’t wait to hear though.

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      Of course, it’s catchy. It’s Mariah. Everything she does is catchy. She’s a pop mastermind. Even her worst song ‘Loverboy’ was a slay. C’mon, you should know this.

      • Todd July 21, 2012

        Preach! loverboy >>>>>> all of rihannas trashy dance beats!

  11. TIMMI July 21, 2012

    YASSSS! Mimi is going to SLAY.


  12. MicroPop July 21, 2012

    Song with two rappers??? So 2005, so Emancipation of Mimi era. This won’t work in 2012. Sorry Mimi. I expected something new and something big from you. 🙁 But I hold the final judgement until the song, just these are bad news 🙁

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      Hush. Prepare to have your nerves plucked by the queen.

  13. Casual July 21, 2012

    Sounds like a mistake. Mariah Carey is a huge pop icon. Meek Mill and Rick Ross will practically ban this single from pop radio.

    Maybe there is a two-single strategy with Triumphant being released for r&b radio.

    • Jayla July 21, 2012

      Mariah is NOT POP lmao

      • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

        Mariah is the pop blueprint. Stay pressed.

      • Jayla July 21, 2012

        Mariah is the R&B queen, have a seat, Madonna is pop

  14. GURL July 21, 2012

    Yes, Mimi-Dahhling making her grand entrance return! I’m so happy to finally hear this news for the new era! ATLITL have been REJOICED today! Godriah will Slay! 🙂

  15. beyonce Manager July 21, 2012

    Beyonce and mariah carey for a song together will be believable

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      She doesn’t need Beyonce for a track. Beyonce doesn’t need Mariah. Two separate lanes, two different artists.

      • beyonce Manager July 22, 2012

        i just saying they both are great singers so i want to hear them together

    • ThéLourson July 21, 2012

      Talk about oil and water together…

      • NewF*YorkBabe. July 21, 2012

        I think it would so work!
        But i’ve always wanted her to do something with Christina A. (I can’t explain why, but i’d love to see what their voices would sound like … not very many singers have big voices anymore ya know?)

  16. Slap-a-h** July 21, 2012

    YASS My Body Is Ready!!

  17. @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

    Mariah’s doing real music. Classic Mariah. Completely different that what everyone else is doing right now. She doesn’t need a dance beat with David Guetta to be relevant. When you have a legacy of being a QUEEN for over 20 years, you’re always relevant.

  18. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 21, 2012

    You can dislike my comment if you want to, but I lost a lot of my respect for her when I read the names Rick Ross and Meek Mill. Couldn’t she at least pick some decent rappers? She’s above this and she should have known better.

    • Ugh July 21, 2012

      Sweetie she worked with Gucci Mane

      • Jayla July 21, 2012

        & Young Jeezy

  19. Todd July 21, 2012

    Yasss Mimi! Bring it on!

  20. Tru Voice July 21, 2012

    I hope this works out! I wanted a solo track. Give me a banger, “It’s like that” pt.2 for 2012 or an updated WBT or something.

    And that pic is BEAUTIFUL but HIGHLY altered. They pulled out her 1993 body for that one lol

  21. MC July 21, 2012

    Hope it’s good

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      It’s Mariah, of course it’s good.

  22. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) July 21, 2012

    WHAT???????? omg I can´t breath ahhahaha Mariah girl you got me excited only by the title
    What a nice surprise after spending the whole day at the beach. Yes Mariah long live the few true greats left and long live the summer! 🙂

  23. NewF*YorkBabe. July 21, 2012

    F*CK YEAH!!!!!!!!
    Been waiting for Real Music & thoughtful lyrics since ’09!
    Can’t wait to hear the new sound!!! I think she’ll take it old school like Donna Summer old school! Her voice seems like it’s literally in the best condition it’s ever been … early ’90’s she wasn’t using her voice they was she wanted, Emancipation showed us what she’s really capable of, but this record will have the quality of her 90’s vocal, but done her way. The women is a bloody artist – she knows what she’s doing and always keeps it fresh especially when people start counting her out. Haters she’s about to rock your little world. The sound of Mariah’s voice alone is a F*ckin’ trip, almost super natural.

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012


  24. Fixurface July 21, 2012

    Yasss, the REAL king is back, no argument! U just can’t argue with THAT! No oversinging, no showing off in excess. In fact nothing in excess with MiMi or trying too hard. MiMi is absolute perfection PERIOD. Welcome back baby.

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012


  25. ThatGrapefruitJuice July 21, 2012

    Her royal majesty is making her way back to us her faves. The greatest queen in music alive today is right around the corner with new music. Can’t wait, August couldn’t come soon enough. She brings new music and I love the thought of that . . . but with Ricky and Meeky?

  26. MC the place to be! July 21, 2012

    Yay!!! My fave is back!! Y’all better watch out mariahs known for her comebacks that’s what a true queen does!! And to the haters watch this gonna be her 19th # 1 and y’all jump on the bandwagon doesn’t matter she’s going to pretty much slay and even though I think American idol is a bad move for her it might be good 4 her promotion wise some ppl need to get a reality check its mariah Carey ppl!! The only big singer we have after Whitney!!!

  27. maz July 21, 2012

    omg omg omg omg i can’t wait for this!!!!

  28. XoMoDe July 21, 2012

    I can’t wait to NOT buy it! LMAO!

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      You don’t have the dollar to buy it anyway. Who are you fooling, lessor?!

  29. Mama Sucker July 21, 2012

    I’d like to say I’m excited, but after the horrors of “it’s like that” and the decidedly worse “touch my body” along with the cringe worthy video I’ll hold my breath till the album.

  30. Ej July 21, 2012

    She’s so “1995”.
    Let her take her old ass shtick on somewhere.

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      Go raise your FICO score before your ever disrespect the queen. What is your fave doing?

  31. Jay Jay July 21, 2012

    So ready for this album!!!

    and I would rather have Rick Ross & meek mill than lil wayne

  32. JoArmy July 21, 2012

    Who is ready for floppiphant?!!!! I am…just joking but she could of kept rick and thats it…..Hope this song is catchy. 🙂

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      Yet, JoJo put out four songs and still can’t get a release date. Stay seated, roach.

      • JoArmy July 21, 2012

        Little one I said i was joking…………Ugh stupid much

  33. Nichole July 21, 2012

    Man. Mariah has to come very hard with this new single, or else her career might be doomed. I don’t want to hear anymore corny tunes such as TMB, and obsessed. She needs to come very hard with this album, and its material cus people don’t seem to be checking for her these days.

    Mariah needs to start taking her musical career more seriously. Make a great mainstream album that would just knock the general public out.

    MC is 42, married and has two kids. It’s time to grow up some music wise.

    • theman July 21, 2012

      She makes great music altogether, fun tunes aren’t corny. Folks are always checking for her. What are u on…

  34. KANG-YONCÉ!!! July 21, 2012

    Mariah Carey, Ciara, Ashanti, J.Lo and others are HAS BEEN NOW !

    When Beyoncé still revelant after +15 years. SASHA FIERCE WILL DESTROY HER ASS AGAIN….


    • MovieAmi July 21, 2012

      I don’t believe for 2 seconds that you’re actually a Beyonce fan. I bet you’re actually a Beyonce hater, trying to be obnoxious with her name to make people hate her.

    • MC July 21, 2012

      she has nothing to prove. come back here when beyonce has accomplish as much as Mimi, until then peace!

  35. @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

    The lessors will have to deal that Mariah is everything. She has been everything since Whitney (God rest her soul) was shaking under her “I’m Your Baby Tonight” wigs in 1990.

  36. nunu July 21, 2012

    GO MARIAH the Empress of Pop Is gonna slay it so watch out

  37. Real Music Please July 21, 2012

    I’ll say this! With the way sells are in decline!! MIMI betta make this s*** like a slice or Oreo cake! Melts in your mouth type single! Cuz with working with these rappers, a lot of times, you only push a way real fans! To be honest, I’m tried of these f****** rappers, on singers tracks!! Back in the day, a singer would have another singer on their track!! That s*** with rappers on songs didn’t begin until like the early 90’s!! I pray this will be her comeback single!! I been liking Mariah since I was 7 years old, back in 1990!! Mariah , please make real music again!!

    • Jayla July 21, 2012

      Please don’t speak for ALL fans, because I love when Mariah has rappers on her traks, stop being a queen

  38. :-D:-D:-D:-D:-D:-D July 21, 2012

    Don’t see this as anything huge.
    She’ll do her normal top 10 or top 5 single.
    Her album will do Gold or Platinum.
    Music will be the same nothing new.
    Its not so bad.
    Look at how long she has been in the game.
    Lesser artist than Mariah
    Run out of ideas at 4 or less…6 six in some ppls case lol
    If it’s not broke,leave it be

    Here hoping she doesn’t pull a Madonna and give us fluff. I hope her voice is better this time. Maybe a tour….a real tour
    Good Luck Mimi

  39. Tyler July 21, 2012

    Everyone is quick to judge and compare her to other artists. Just WAIT AND SEE if you like it! If you DO then give her props and enjoy her music. All these other STANS of other artists are so insecure. THERE IS ROOM FOR EVERYONE AT THE TOP. Enjoy your favorites but enjoy other music as well. You don’t need to put one artist down to life up another.

  40. Back2Business July 21, 2012

    I looove Mariah Carey and why y’all coming for MiMi like she not a boss, and y’all ain’t even heard the single yet? Correct me if I’m wrong but Obsessed was a pretty good song and it featured a nobody (Gucci Mane), and Rick Ross and Meek Mills are two HOT rappers right now!

  41. Back2Business July 21, 2012

    And I’m sick of people that hate Beyonce going onto other artist post posing as a stan of the #BeyHive! To all of the Lambs, WE LOVE Y’ALL AND MARIAH!!! #BeyHive <3 #Lambs

    • MC July 21, 2012

      I am a Mariah fan, but i like Beyonce as well, but some “stans” (I don’t know if they are fake stans or not) are making me angry by making mean comments about Mimi and posing as a member of the BeyHive (yes i am referring to @KANG-YONCÉ!!!)

      • Back2Business July 21, 2012

        @KANG-YONCE is a rihanna stan i believe who hates Beyonce and likes to keep up drama!

    • Jayla July 21, 2012

      Thank U, Some maturity

      • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

        Beyonce and Rihanna have the worst, most delusional fans ever.

        Rihanna fans have no room to be talking. They’re obviously oblivious to the fact that their wigged goat can’t take a break because she’s teetering on being irrelevant in the next five minutes.

  42. the real xoxo July 21, 2012

    cannot wait! glad its an urban song aswell judging by the features.
    shes one of the few artists who can do urban songs without sounding basic.

  43. GREG July 21, 2012

    This picture of her is ridiculous…..look at where her waist is and where the legs begin to come out of the dress….really Pariah??? The photo shopping of your photos has just become a joke

    • @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

      And what do you look like, musty beaver?

  44. Gary July 21, 2012

    BeYAWNce, the song stealing, backstabbing thief. Stop comparing Mariah and BeYAWNce, there is no comparison at all !!!!!!

    • Truth July 21, 2012

      Song stealing? Oh, you mean like how Mariah stole and was sued over:

      Sent From Up Above
      Can’t Let Go
      Make It Happen
      Thank God I Found You


      • Nichole July 21, 2012

        Several of those law suits were thrown out of court.

        At least we know Mariah is a REAL songwriter, and doesn’t steal other people’s material and taking credit that she wrote it. We also know that she doesn’t steal from other artists performances, claiming to be tributing those artists.

        By the way, the lawsuit for TGIFY was definitely thrown out because the person that tried to sue Mariah turned out to be a liar.

        Beyonce only wishes she was a songwriter, and she would have been lucky to be half as great as Mariah.

        Besides, some of the greatest songwriters have been sued. But at least they write their s*** for real, and not taking credit for songs they didn’t write.

    • Jayla July 21, 2012

      U sound DUMB, sissy

  47. @TheIndiigo July 21, 2012

    See, the thing is that Mariah Carey DOESN’T have to put out another record. She could have stopped at ‘SLAYDREAM’ and kept you floored with all the accolades she’s had since 1996. But she does it out of true love for music and her fans. You losers are obviously still pressed that 17 out of 18 of the #1’s she received has her name as the PRIMARY songwriter (try that one, BeYAWNce fans).

    She’s the Queen. Get used to it. Constant slayage and she isn’t even trying.

    • CHARMBRACELET ALL OVER AGAIN!!!! July 21, 2012





      • Jayla July 21, 2012

        She is definitely the queen of sales, doesn’t Mariah have like 2-3 DIAMOND albums? Have a seat

    Mariah will snatch wigs and put b****** in their places
    Bye bye Adele, your career is over!

  49. Todd July 22, 2012


  50. Slayriah July 22, 2012

    You trolls comparing Rihanna and Beyonce to Queen Mariah should have a seat!!
    18 #1 singles
    2 Diamond albums
    2 Song of the Decade songs
    Longest #1 song on Hot 100

    Prepare the way for the one and only Queen. All the Adele’s, Beyonce’s, Rihanna’s, Katy Perry’s will bow down because she is about to SLAY again and again and AGAIN! Enough said.

    • MC July 23, 2012

      Don’t forget that she is the best selling female artist of all time too 🙂

  51. Maria July 23, 2012

    It was about time. I’m tired of hearing people who cannot sing on the radio.

    She wouldn’t have to put out new music because she is loaded, but she loves her fans too much.

    Anyway, welcome back, THE VOICE (I know it was Whitney, but since she is not around anymore…)

    And please, do not complain about Mariah working with rappers. She’s been doing it since 1995 and set the trend.

  52. Dlux July 23, 2012

    Yes! I am looking forward to this single! Mariah knows that she needs a radio single to stir buzz! what better way than with Rick Ross and Meek. One thing I can say about Ross is that he doesnt feature himself on any song that isnt HOT and this track must be HOT. I hope Mariah embraces her DIVA image this era and every video gives you “I’m rich, very rich”, because the life these rappers rap about is the life Mariah actually lives.

    and please stop calling her a “Has been” you better hope your favorite stays relavant after 20+ years…..

    and one more thing… Please stop comparing Beyonce to Mariah. Mariah is a singer while Beyonce is a entertainer. Two diffrent lanes. They both a great at what they do and will continue to be great. But if you really want to go there Beyonce isnt pushing numbers like she use too either shes slowly becoming a “has been” herself.
