New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘Triumphant (Get ‘Em)’ (Dance Mix)

Mariah Carey is not playing.

The premium diva continues to show her contemporaries how to launch a single. For, after premièring her latest gem ‘Triumphant’ amidst a blaze of hype last night, the cut’s official Dance (Vintage Throwback) Mix received its premiere moments ago.

Boasting all-new vocals, the solely Mariah affair is a must-hear. Check it out after the jump….

All a bit “airy-fairy”, but it wouldn’t be a Mariah remix if it wasn’t.

The presence of new vocals are welcomed both conceptually and literally. In an era where DJ’s are routinely employed to simply rip up and re-sew the original, it’s clear a real effort was made in this particular instance. A fact which, for us, earns the remix more gold stars than the original.

For, while solid, the original plays like more of a Rick Ross & Meek Mill (ft. Mariah) record than the other way around. She also doesn’t use the length and breadth of her vocal range, opting for her now trademark whisper and pasted whistle notes. This, here, at least rights some of those wrongs. Hence deserves kudos.

    It sounds like straight up trash and I’m honestly starting to think that she just can’t sing anymore. I thought that the dance mix would be hot but once again this snippet ain’t it and furthermore it sounds worse than the actual single which was a huge disappointment itself.

    • Honestly Speaking August 3, 2012

      Her vocals sounds rough and unfinished and it’s fair criticism. I’m a fan of the old Mariah that could sing and gave us albums like Music Box, Butterfly, etc. not this sub-par, jank sounding “music” that makes her seem disconnected from the current musical climate.

    • mobwife August 3, 2012

      I disagree, I actually LIKE this version much better. This song with her solo vocals is quite nice!

      However, I’m a bit confused. Didn’t the post below say she was not interested in having DANCE MUSIC and what she deems “non-R&B elements” on her CD? I know she didn’t order this dance remix BUT I bet you a dime to a donut this will be pushed by her team inspite of what she JUST SAID ABOUT “DEM BABIES” blah, blah bullsh** blah, blah and bringing back REAL R&B! WATCH PPL…….The original song is garbage she better see how she can grab this dance remix ASAP!!

      I guess the next rendition will hear Frank Ocean cooing in the background……LOL 🙂

    • James August 4, 2012

      I like her older music from the 90s much more too. Hell, even Heartbreaker was a great track.

      She needs to put this version on the album and hopefully she will TOTALLY scrap the original. Lets pray.

  2. Azooz B August 3, 2012

    luuuuuuuuuuve it
    better than the 1st ver ^^
    goo mariah <3

  3. Theman4u August 3, 2012

    Im sorry but it’s just so generic to me

  4. Reece Davis August 3, 2012

    Mariah will always be the Remix Queen in my eyes! New vocals instead of her one verse repeated how many times. I don’t really like the chorus in the remix though it doesn’t fit IMO. Hopefully this should give her success in Europe though

  5. christinastherealtalent August 3, 2012

    Just one question for Nick Cannon. You said pregnancy has inspired Mariah on so many different levels that it reflects incredibly in her new music. We have yet to proof of that.

    • NewF*YorkBabe. August 3, 2012

      Hatas said they didn’t want ‘Touch My Body’/’Obsessed’ part 2. … And she didn’t do that in the least. What you lookin’ for.?. Amazing Lyrics! Dude, you don’t need to hate Mariah if you lovin Christina. The Pop world needs a HELLS of a lot more from talented people like these two women and real heartful, vocally stunning talents like X-tina & MC.

  6. ME August 3, 2012

    MY LIFE WAS SLAYED!!!!!!!!!!


    • NewF*YorkBabe. August 3, 2012


  7. Spunkypoop August 3, 2012

    Better than the original for sure. lol.

  8. Todd August 3, 2012

    Go MIMI!

  9. That B*tch August 3, 2012

    This one’s okay but I liked the original 100x better.

  10. Kingphoenix August 3, 2012

    Oh my lord, i thought she was trying to bring back RnB? Girl, Mariah, you are too old to be doing techno music filming videos dancing in nite clubs with glow sticks. I really can’t. How the mighty have fallen. Ummm, the Lambs are going to get slaughtered today.

    • dom August 3, 2012

      why are you acting brand new, maybe you are, if so, check Mariahs credentials she’s been doing dance mixes since forever, get a clue then comment

      • Kingphoenix August 3, 2012

        Oh I know Mariah is Queen and all and she has been doing dance mixes since the nineties with C+C. But she is too old for that, and its not the 90s anymore. As well, she has been stated as saying she wanted to bring RnB back, i don’t know how she is going to do that with lame songs like this but okay.

      • mobwife August 3, 2012

        This remix is better then the original IMO! And I don’t think she is too old for a DANCE REMID song, that’s just crazy. The problem is that she just carried on about real R&B and how others are crossing over from R&B. girl bye she knows her success as an r&B artists has been in marketing her as a R&B/Pop act just ask her ex-Tommy Matola (sp?)!

    • Jair August 3, 2012

      How the hell is Mariah “too old’?! JLO is older than her and look at her making dance crap after dance crap. Such an irrelevant comment. Mariah’s always done dance remixes, but unlike every other artist, she re-sings and flips the entire song around, what a RE-MIX is supposed to be. Mariah just can’t win with people. She does a hip-hop/r&B joint and she gets put down. she does a dance track & she gets put down. Whatever, man, y’all are just a bunch of picky HATERS. Mariah doesn’t have the voice she used to have, FACE IT PEOPLE! Love her for what she is TODAY.

      • MC August 3, 2012

        I agree! Half the people want her to do something current and fresh and when she does a song like this with a remix she is so1990s. And when she does a song like “Obsessed” or “Touch my body” she is so classless and they wish she would go back to the 1990s. Watch, if she does a balled they will tear her up and say she is stuck in time; and if she does an up-beat song she need to go back to her 1990s phase. She is no longer in her 20s, she is in her 40s! She is doing songs that relate to her NOW not 20 or 10 years ago! shm

      • theman August 3, 2012

        Her voice has improved in many different aspects. She sounds amazing on this song…

  11. Mely B August 3, 2012

    I like it. The lyrics are on point & it’s an upbeat track – knowing Mariah she’s going to hit us with a killer ballad right before the album drops.

  12. i know August 3, 2012

    THANK YOU MIMI….I just KNEW something was up with the “original version” ….but HOW could we forget that Mariah is a GENIUS and she HAD TO KNOW that the “original” deserved a REMIX that actually showcast her VOICE and TALENT. Now this is what I’m talking about Mariah….THANK YOU FOR REVIVING MY BELIEF IN YOUR TALENT & MUSIC!!! (I was getting worried hahah)

  13. Steve August 3, 2012

    What would make the track perfect is to have the Original Beat, with the new solo vocals. Job Done

  14. RoyalKev August 3, 2012

    I know I’m going to sound like a hater, but I just don’t like this song the more I listen to it. The only part I like is the get ’em , get ’em, get ’em. I’m sure Mariah has some heat on this album (she does on every album). I’m just going to have to overlook this and wait on single #2. If ya’ll lambs like it that’s all that matters.

    • Frachella August 3, 2012

      I’m with you die hard lamb here, but I can’t just can’t with this single..

    • Saetana August 4, 2012

      And me, I’ve listened to it a few times and I don’t like it at all. She really does sound like a feature on the main single and she just had to go down the rent-a-rapper route same as almost everyone does these days :o(

  15. AJ August 3, 2012

    Im still not excited about this at all….i probably can get with this remix better than the original since the vocals are cleaner. I think she should just push this as the main version to mainstream radio and hope for the best. I’m feeling a LITTLE better about this version than the original. so maybe there will be some hope

  16. Ajanni August 3, 2012

    Sounds like something like Irene Cara sang in the early ’80’s FAME movie. The song belongs on a 1980’s soundtrack. I compare the vocals to Janet Jackson lite or the Ying Yang twins on the Whisper song. Still waiting for that strong, vocally superior Mariah from The Emancipation of MiMi.

  17. MARINEEYECANDY August 3, 2012

    Let me start off saying I really respect Mariah.
    To me(in her vocal prime) was one of my top 10 favorite singers.
    I don’t hold on to the past. for me her wonderful voice was gone after the glitter soundtrack

    However,I’m beginning to think she is only putting music out now because she thinks her name alone will sell it. I mean the first version was trash…this s*** right here is garbage.
    The “kids” and lambs will like it. Why? Mariah could fart to a hot beat and they would say it slays. I’m not even here for a ballad if vocally she can’t handle an uptempo.
    I know it’s harsh but I call it the way I see it.
    If the next single is good I’ll cop the album though because even with her voice being shot her last three albums were nice.

    • theman August 3, 2012

      Clearly you cannot hear, because her voice was amazing on her last xmas album, and she also had great vocals on her other albums. It was just a different style of singing. This song isn’t trash. It’s just not the norm…

      • MC August 3, 2012

        I know these people want to hear the same styles, song arrangement, and lyrics over and over again…can you blame them, that’s what their faves do..

    • AJ August 3, 2012

      Just downloaded it from this site….made a big difference. Sounds 100% better.

  18. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 3, 2012

    Great remix, always a pleasure hearing new vocals from mariah
    To the ignorant people: she has always made these type of dance remixes, it doesn´t mean the genre her albums are made of are R&B/urban/pop and a little Soul in her first two. So Mariah saying she is going to do R&B has nothing to do with dance remixes
    You are just searching for excuses to hate cos your favs can´t touch all those genres

    • mobwife August 3, 2012

      Right, so she needs to keep her mouth closed about “REAL R&B” as if she has not been and will continue to be, one of the music industry’s crossover queens.

    • Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) August 3, 2012

      so u now ok with dance and dance remixes and forgettable dance songs like this one above ?!!!

      um k , as long it is mariah , if it is s*** u will eat it for her i think !!! u have always trashed others for doing the same thing , but now u all ” your fav can’t touch those genre , to the ignorant ppl” ?!!!

      good to know and see that. that is hypocrisy !! that’s why i always say Lambs are not honest at all.

      • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 4, 2012

        Man you are crazy lately. Don´t you get this is a remix???????? It´s not a forgettable song from her album, it´s a dance remix, and it sounds like one, only that with amazing vocals, not like u know who
        Another thing it would be if she were making a dance album (like Madonna or whatever) and this would be a track on it, then yes it would be easy and generic, but this is a remix from a song of hers, and it sounds just like it should. Rihanna, Britney and the rest don´t even do them so don´t know what your talking about. She completely changes it and makes new vocals

        Generic is your favorite song on Usher´s album (Euphoria) that´s generic to the max and it´s an actual song on the album. Or how can you trash Mariah´s “Thriumphant” but adore Usher´s “Lemme see”??? It´s the same type of song, only that Mariah´s voice will always sound more fabulous and the lyrics are better than “Lemme see” obviously

  19. Marquis Dior August 3, 2012

    ARe you kidding me?!! anyone who does not believe this is epic must be deaf..She represented on this remix!! Let’s go MiMi, take these number 1 spots again and let the haters talk. Get’em!

  20. Peter Griffin August 3, 2012

    I wish there was a version halfway through this version and the original. She needs a good pop producer to make something that appeals to all crowds, so we can all enjoy it together!

  21. Shawn August 3, 2012

    This Just Isn’t Her ? not hatin just statin my opinion. . Not Better Than The Orginal But I Still LOVE Mariah <3

  22. See August 3, 2012

    Only one thing i wanna say DOPE!!
    MIMI Vocal Slayyed!!!
    R u kidding me??? HATER U CAN EAT YOuR OWN S*** and we need to Celebrate!!!

  23. musik_lover August 3, 2012

    That’s one thing I love about Mariah. When she remixes a song…She give you brand new vocals. I can see the remix playing in the clubs and making its way on the dance charts. And the original urban single making rounds on urban radio, and I’m sure her team is working to follow up with a video treatment that will amp up the song a lot more.

    If anything does go without saying. She is gearing up to put out an album that will be way better than her last two offerings that’s for sure.

  24. See August 3, 2012

    goshhh THIS IS DOPE…better than the original version..cuz it has no rap..and it actually has verse which the orignal dont have,..COOLL

  25. Frosty August 3, 2012

    goshhh THIS IS DOPE…better than the original version..cuz it has no rap..and it actually has verse which the orignal dont have,..COOLL

  26. mc the place to be!! August 3, 2012

    I wish these ppl would shut up about wanting old mariah back like damn that’s was over 15 years ago when Tommy was controlling and abusive basically when she was unhappy and that’s like telling someone when they’re in their 20s ” o I wish you can be more like when you were 13″ like shut up if you want daydream and f***** music box then go on YouTube and listen to em and for the ppl who think mariah has something to prove like singing y’all need to sit down because even those whisper notes she sings are difficult its sad that someone with so much success and talent get written of by her peers and so called fans y’all did the same to Whitney and now that’s she’s gone she’s the best when I know most of y’all last year was saying o shed washed up and can’t sing anymore..get a f***** life!! I never understood how you want someone to change their look and sound 4 you to be satisfied and happy and for them to be miserable and unsure smh

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 3, 2012

      Great comment!

  27. Azmik August 3, 2012

  29. kevin August 3, 2012

    Mimi served VOCALS. I haven’t heard such clarity in her voice since her XMAS album and Emancipation.

  30. MissRealR&BSound August 3, 2012

    Rather if she keeps those lyrics but with the original sound version with only rozay in the featuring… enough of Euro Dance Music Fed UP seriously, we’re in 2012 GUYS…

  32. S****** Blonde August 3, 2012

    hahahahaha so generic like the crap is on the radio.

    • MC August 3, 2012

      this a remix idiot. dear lord and aren’t you the dance pop juckie anyway? stfu

      • S****** Blonde August 3, 2012

        I told you my reasons, (JohnVidal), it’s a joke baby.

      • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 3, 2012

        What? What the hell do I have to do with this? Hell don´t even go there I´d never do that. Don´t need to. Defending talent is all I need. That´s why I defend Madonna so many times hun
        MC is not me. Although I´ve noticed I agree with him/her on almost everything from the comments I´ve read. Except he/she likes Beyonce and I don´t. But yeah he/she puts Rihanna, Britney and the rest (u know) in their place

      • S****** Blonde August 3, 2012

        I shading Mariah for fun, i love to see you mad, sorry John, you know i love you.

      • MC August 3, 2012

        @S****** Blonde eat it 🙂

      • MC August 3, 2012

        @JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) I am a female and I do agree with you on everything you say/comment on. I am not a Beyonce fan/stan but I appreciate that she is a hard worker and has made a name for herself (forgetting people she stumped on to get here *cough Destiny’s Child*). I am far from being a stan or fan of Beyonce and her stealing, I mean inspired spirit. I just don’t want to involve myself with a certain Hive and their almighty “King” of stealing….

      • S****** Blonde August 3, 2012

        We have a love/hate relationship but he loves me.

      • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 4, 2012

        “I mean spirit” LOL
        Well it seems we agree on even more things then 🙂 You have been a great new visitor to this site. It´s full of crazy and ignorant Beyonce and Rihanna fans and then a few different people like @s****** for example. I prefer people like him, he likes lots of music, specially rock/dance/pop. But he is a little obsessed with shading, specially everybody except for Madonna (and Rihanna and Britney for unknown reasons, I suppose they are his adolescent crushes)
        But he knows the facts, he just acts like he doesn´t sometimes

      • MC August 4, 2012

        @JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) lol okay….I am only here for talented people, but I’ve got to put those crazed stans in their places, you know? 🙂

      • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 4, 2012

        Put them Put them! I live for that 🙂

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 4, 2012

      Hi 🙂

      • S****** Blonde August 4, 2012

        John my idol crushes are not Britney or Rihanna but Kurt Cobain, MJ, Madonna, Eminem and Chester Bennigton (Linkin Park)….you know it’s all for fun but you know you are bitchy too specially when it comes to Madonna.

      • S****** Blonde August 4, 2012

        and i’m not that young, i told you b****.

  33. Erick August 3, 2012

    Hate it. I’m all for an “all singing” version, but it should have been set to the original track. This is too pop. I don’t want her to do anything that conforms to dance/pop. She should keep it R&B throughout this entire era.

  34. Oggie ‘Singer’ August 3, 2012

    This Remix is siiiick!!!!!! 8/10 and i’ll give her 10/10 if she adds these verse vocals to the R&B version and squashes the rappers to an 8 bar!

    • Triumphant August 3, 2012


  35. TBT August 3, 2012

    Thanks to the torture I’ve endured from Gaga, Katy, LMFAO, Rihanna, sellout Usher, sellout Chris, etc., etc., I have become pretty pop-phobic. That aerobics dance s*** needs to be staked.

    The only thing I like about this remix is that it’s all her. I would have much prefer these vocals with the original beat, just without Rick and Meek.

  36. lucifer August 3, 2012

    She is too old to still be chasing around the latest music trends/rappers. Didn’t her success with TEOM teach her anything? Just sing quality songs.

    And those pap pics of her during that photo shoot prove they photoshopped the H*LL out of her body.

  37. Pop Royalty ( F*** Yo Fav) August 3, 2012

    it sounds generic , pop , non-R&B and nice.

  38. theman August 3, 2012

    The song is amazing. It’s structured completely different from all of the other dance records. She’s actually sanging… It sounds great. This is a remix… The first version of the song is the actual song.

  39. MC the place to be!! August 3, 2012

    she has another version of it called the pulse mix just click the arrow on her site because its not listed!!! its way better!! than the throwback remix its really for house clubbers!

    • Shaquiniqua-rose August 4, 2012

      Its amazing!!!

  40. NewF*YorkBabe. August 3, 2012

    Can’t wait to hit the club!!!
    Yes. I like the Orig. & the remix for totally different situations and circumstance. A blunt and a beer on a Sunny after on the Balcony, Orig.Period. Dranks, Club. Remix!

    • NewF*YorkBabe. August 3, 2012

      Sunny afternoon on the balcony*

  41. Shaquiniqua-rose August 4, 2012

    YES!!! BEST REMIX!!! Inspirational, Dance worthy, perfect vocals/lyrics…Thank you MC! Never let them count you out…

  42. Shaquiniqua-rose August 4, 2012
