New Video: Mariah Carey – ‘Triumphant (Get ‘Em)’

Published: Tuesday 21st Aug 2012 by Sam

It’s here!

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”.

    Well!.. it was directed by her husband, i actually expect the worst but no, she looks good and i enjoy the video.

    • the realest August 21, 2012

      oh dear. This is just tragic. She needs some kind of ‘strength’ to offset the ‘s***’.

      If she was in the ring, duking it out with herself or someone else it would have been much more enjoyable.

      Thats why ‘heartbreaker’ and ‘honey’ were so good, she had strength which made it funny and the s*** was relevant.

      I expected this video to be rubbish bc Nick directed it though.

      • S****** Blonde August 21, 2012

        She, just her and only her makes the video great.

    God, I love Mariah SO much.. but……. This song sucks !!! Please stop having Nick direct your videos, they all suck. God that was bad.

    • Boring As Hell August 21, 2012

      agree, she should been retired a long time ago;same time with Janet.

  6. kevin August 21, 2012

    she looks good and I like the gold. I just wish some of the camerawork went in closer on her face/headshots.

    Idk why but it gives me a 60’s / not as intense “Roof” tease.

    • Adrian August 21, 2012

      It is 60’s themed! That’s why lol

    • Adrian August 21, 2012

      She announced a week before the premiere of the video that it was gonna be a “60’s themed video.”

  9. Siberian Prince August 21, 2012

    So you guys diss a talented legend like Mariah Carey, but praise a Talentless whorebag like Rihanna?

    • Benron (King Of The Navy) August 21, 2012

      No, they are even harder on her.

      Funny because Rihanna can actually PROJECT her voice and MAKE A PROPER MUSIC VIDEO. Goodbye!

      • You Failed August 21, 2012

        Mariah is desperate. Rihanna didnt have 9 flop singles …yet… 😉

      • MC August 21, 2012

        What voice? lol B**** pleaseeeeeeeeeee

    Hmmm I love Mariah but I’m looking for epic epic epic epic songs/videos…..

    • Madonna is laughing I am sure August 22, 2012

      Epic flop! Next?????? 🙁

  11. DA PHUCK August 21, 2012

    42 and still dressing like a s***, love it! but why is mariah singing back up on her OWN song. girl you slipping, i like the song regardless.

  12. MC the place to be! August 21, 2012

    She looks absolutely stunning I like the video!! When I first heard it I thought of actual boxing especially on the remix!!

  13. theman August 21, 2012

    You muthafuckaz complain about every damn thing. She looks wonderful and the concept was nice. Here Sam goes with pitiful a** complaining. Meanwhile, where is Kelly song on the charts? Where is it anywhere? You don’t even talk about it, cause no one cares. Mariah is always relevant. You are such a flipflopper. When this song starts soaring, you’ll flip the damn script, like u usually do. This site is very ignorant… especially the so called person in charge of it…

    • mc the place to be!! August 21, 2012

      i know his shade has just got to go like seriously and who is rita ora if it wasnt for grape juice i wouldnt have heard of her because they definitely dont play her in the us period sam just hates #thatsall

      • theman August 21, 2012

        A knockoff Rihanna that no one here pays attention to…

  14. Jayla August 21, 2012

    Of course all the f*** have all the negative comments on this site

  15. theman August 21, 2012

    The song is climbing on radio and is an urban single, this is not generic pop. Urban songs grow in sales as their airplay grows.

  16. MadBrax August 21, 2012

    like an extended version of her Jenny Craig commercial. Video is a total miss like the song itself.

  17. theman August 21, 2012

    Holla at everyone when your “one single wonder” gets atleast a gold album…… (SAM) !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Galuda August 21, 2012

    Love Mariah but this video ain’t it.

  19. Honestly Speaking August 21, 2012

    This video was a typical Mariah Carey video. I don’t know why people are acting so surprised that she still insists on wearing clothing two sizes too small and prancing around as though she’s still in her 20s. It was barely acceptable back when she was actually making good music, however, it most definitely isn’t appropriate or fitting now when her material is sub-par and she is in dire need of having this record being taken seriously. She needs to stop and remember the musical force that she once was in music. If she can no longer deliver the songs that she used to; for whatever reason then she needs to stop making a mockery out of her legacy and retire. It’s painful to see musical icons such as Mariah and Madonna not know when to stop and bow out gracefully.

    • Triumphant August 21, 2012

      Mariah Carey the world Icon of all time what can i say about the new video.. She ROCK it and came strong with the message. The concept is brilliant and Nick Cannon this time really show some creativity on that! The GOLD can’t match any of em accept Mariah Carey. WOW.. i really enjoy the video and MAriah look soo stunning and Beautiful!!!!@

      • Triumphant should be renamed – “Failure”. August 21, 2012

        MooMoo looks like a desperate stripper as usual

    • MC August 21, 2012

      Says the Rihanna stan lol! Go watch the video of her crying fake ass tears…

  20. Life August 21, 2012

    Umm… isn’t that tube top and mini from the 98 Honey video? She needs to show maturity. She’s been doing the same thing since Honey. I love Mariah, but she needs to be a diva and act her age. This was more farcical than inspiring. Switch up the formula!

  21. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) August 21, 2012

    Mariah herself is the one and only saving grace of this mess of a video! She looks amazing, no doubt!

    Everything else is a no-no. The rappers got a bigger role than she did. They took over the song and now they took over the video. Mariah has to get MUCH more shine than this in her own lead single. Hearing the title ‘Triumphant’, I expected this would be the song that would put her back on top after years of missteps, but so far it seems to be backfiring. I HOPE, I really do, she has a KILLER second single coming.


    Its alright I guess for MC , shes looking good

  23. MC&TB4LIFE August 21, 2012

    I would like to know who the f*** is Sam or is it Samantha, you are one silly gay. You have nothing to say and your critique goes nowhere. I wouldnt even use profanities at u scum like you. #JAMAICAINDAHOUSE

  24. Bobby Bulgaria August 21, 2012

    “Mariah’s s** appeal vanished in 2001” ?????????????????????

    Say WHAT ???

    What ???

    What again ???

      F*** them! ”In a James Bond Beamer chrome wheel two seater” all day!

  25. mc the place to be!! August 21, 2012

    i dont think its that serious shes only in her 40s shes not 60!!! shes grown when she was in her 20s doing this yall was still complaining! atleast she not showing her nipple to the world like madonna but she came out with a nice inspirational song instead of a love/s** song its nothing wrong with what she has on especially that gorgeous gown she had on at the end!!

  26. DOSSOME August 21, 2012

    STFU sam….what did u expect?its MC,she’s not gonna do those outrageous BAD ROMANCE clips…Good song,good video,i love it…BTW samantha,i doubt mariah wants advice on how 2 go about with her career 200 MILLION RECORDS later from anybody especially not FLOPjuice.

  27. Jamison August 21, 2012

    OH MARIAH!!!!! NO MA’AM!!! The song is tired and the video looks like most of the videos from you’re past!! Nothing new here! You’re voice is way to incredible for this!!! Nobody wants to see Rick Ross prancing around in a fur anymore than you prancing around in clothes that even Rihanna would not be caught dead in. SMH!!! You better start serving up the next single because this one was DEAD ON ARRIVAL as is the video!!!!!

    • theman August 21, 2012

  28. IOTA August 21, 2012

    Why is there so much hate? Lol

    I actually thought that this was one of the better videos that I have seen in a while. Color-coordination, build-up, theme that matches the song — FINALLY A VIDEO THAT MATCHES THE SONG lol

    Hope that it does well. Nick Cannon did a good job on this one.

  29. get mad…over comments on a blog? i think not!!! August 21, 2012

    The video is horrible.
    The song is even worse.
    The remixes are terrible also.
    I dont blindly Stan for someone even if I like them. If the song is crappy I’m not going to say I like it just because.
    I dig Mariah..I really do
    However her time is up. Why not bow out gracefully do something else.
    I mean she has 18#1’s and is the second best selling female in the world. Let it go
    After those 2 flops you’d think an artist would get the picture. Radio doesn’t even play it. Haven’t heard it on the radio yet.
    The only way this will be a hit is if she goes back to her Columbia records days and start using payola again

    • theman August 21, 2012

      It’s been spun on multiple stations where we are. May’be you need to listen to another station. The video is far from horrible. As far as payola she had nothing to do with that.

  30. Slick August 21, 2012

    the Thing is she actually has the talent to make good music, but these kinds of songs are Garbage and you all know it. I’m sick of her “hood” like songs. I think she can still dress s*** but do Music of quality with REAL VOCALS not this thin super layered bs.

  31. HOTSTUFF August 21, 2012

    THIS SLAYED MY LIFE :’) OMG I LOVE MC ! This i think is for the fans, not the charts… After 18 #1 hit no one cares about the charts …GO MC GO <3

  32. James227 August 21, 2012

    Seems like it’s Meek Mills/Rick Ross ft Mariah Carey. This song could have been better if those rappers was not on it.

  33. JER August 21, 2012

    I cant. I cant at Mariah. Nursery rhyme lyrics over a 2003 beat with 2 rappers while barely wearing any clothes. Get that #2832 iTunes smash!!!!!!!!!! Shes so inspirational!!!!

      That’s right. Where is Janet again? No one knows because she is so irrelevant that the only way we hear about her is through family DRAMA…

  36. Benron (King Of The Navy) August 21, 2012

    Why does Mariah lyp-sync with her mouth open so wide? When someone sings that…. um… weakely Im sure they’re not opening their mouth to belt. She should take classes From some other lyp-syncers cuz she sucks.

    This video fails to capture the average person attention. Speaking of the average person, they probably would of sang (to her fans, I said sing, not whisper) the song much better than she did. The beat is outdated and when people hear it on the radio they change the station immediately, horrible mix of artists, horrible vocals, the people rapping had no flow. GoodBye!

    She is going with all the other irrellivants to American Idol, which, like Mariahs last 12 singles and last album, will flop.

    • MC August 21, 2012

      It didn’t capture your attention because you are below average lol. You are the scum of the earth….

      • Benron (King Of The Navy) August 22, 2012

        Whats that? Do you hear something, because your “MC” and she is dressed life a callgirl so…

      • MC August 22, 2012

        @Bathroom (Rihanna s****/ass licker/scum of the earth)
        B**** you stan for a non-talented b**** who tweets “So much D*** riding my c*** hurts” and cries fake ass tears about a man who beat her up 3 YEARS AGO (she is still milking that) and says she is in love with him. Lol stay pressed.

  37. TheOne August 21, 2012

    Some you dudes act worst than women! Just because your gay doesn’t mean you have to be a sissy! You don’t want people to lable or judge yourlife stlyle, but you tell a women who looks damn good for her age, she needs to put on clothes. Nothing MC has on is revealing in the slightest! She’s in a full length gown at the for sakes! It’s a music video, not a presidential inauguration fools. Fye I am 28 and I don’t consider 42 old at all, besides this life goes by so fast and any second could be your last so I say, “Live each momment to fullest.” That’s what I see Mariah doing! Love you and your music MC and may God keep you protected!

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 22, 2012

      I completely agree with you except for the gay thing? What do gays have to do with this post? Other than that totally agree

  38. PrettigurlrockD August 21, 2012

    SMH. The navy are such hypocrites. The video was hot. Still blah about the song tho.

  39. Champ Boy August 21, 2012

    i don’t think she gives a s***, She’ not here to “Slay” as you gays call it. She has nothing to prove especially not to you. She does the type of music she wants, She can afford to buy every body on this site lol

  40. Dave August 21, 2012

    Honestly, the song isn’t a first single. But, I definitely think it’s at least album worthy. One of the songs you listen to, & truly get a meaning of some essence & substance. I for one did not like the song at 1st, but it’s growing on me. The video is actually nice, & I like how Mariah let the storyline play out & serve a purpose, because it made the video more fitting to the song. However, Mariah is really serving to be one dimensional in her artistry. What purpose did she serve in the actual video? She just pranced around in her hot body. This is not a Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers commercial. Sure the role she played in the video was relevant, they have women like that when they do boxing matching prance around like that, but can she actually do anything else. Could she have been a actress in her video? & this is not hate, this is constructive criticism. I don’t hate her, not the biggest fan. But she is a legend/icon. She should not have played back seat to a freaking Rick Ross & Meek Mill. What kind of Comeback or Comeback single is that? That makes her seem unconfident in her own possibilities of a comeback success. However, to add another great thing about the song/video, I loved her harmonies. & why are people getting on Kelly Rowland? Kelly Rowland isn’t Sam or Samantha, & she’s actually talented. & besides some of the shade Sam threw, if he would’ve worded it more maturely, he had a few valid points. Two wrongs, does not make a right.

    • Bobby Bulgaria August 22, 2012

      “She just pranced around in her hot body”, so what???

      That’s just what WE WANNA SEE, right!

      I just want good music for my ears and some s*** f****** slutty stripper moves for my eyes… Do we need anything ELSE?

      Ha ha ha…

  42. Dave August 21, 2012

    Oh yeah, & “Ice” is officially on the charts @ #66 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop charts. & it’s a Urban single without a official iTunes release & no promo, that’s really good.

      Congrats Kells…..

  43. Bey Fan August 21, 2012

    Ummm she looks good….great.

    Cant say the video did anything for me.

    And I dont really care for the song.

    Why does having an opinion make you a hater??? Ppl saying s*** like she washed up, her career is over, grandriah….. those ppl might be hating. But if someone doesn’t like the video or the song, they’re not hating, they just dont like it…

    we all know Mariah is an icon….legend….and has one of the greatest voices of all time. But that doesn’t make this video or song good….

    • Theman August 22, 2012

      Just like others enjoy the song. It’s subjective…..

  44. Jazz August 21, 2012

    Remaining talent and relevant is something beyonce wishes on her lucky stars

    • Bey Fan August 21, 2012

      you bring Beyonce up on a completely unrelated post….she’s apparently relevant in your life….

      And lets see which song tops higher on the r&b charts… Triumphant or Love On Top???

  45. MC August 21, 2012

    I really liked the video and she looked great….still wish they would take out the rappers, but I still like it. Def. not #1 material, but I still enjoy it. Lol at the same people posting under different names and those stupid Nazy navi members. And those 2 Janet stans (lol) come here and complain about Mariah flopping. Where is Janet’s career? hmmm?

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 22, 2012

      I know! What´s up with the goat stans these last two days when it comes to Mariah? Pressed as hell that even on a front in which Mariah is not remarcable (videos) she still kills Rihanna. Does Rihanna at least moves more in her videos than Mariah on this new one at 42?

      • MC August 22, 2012

        They are dumb as hell……somebody come get these stupid idiots they are PRESSED

  46. Podishqua August 21, 2012

    Firstly; She looks HOT! Okay so we all agree that we would have preferred a Mariah only singled but we didn’t get that, so putting that aside I think the video over all was quite essthseticaly pleasing. Some of the editing was a lil dodgy- too many shots of mariah too far away from the camera, not facing the camera and too many of her as the ‘ring girl’…they should have stuck with her as the manager…maybe her in her office giving her fighter (meek Mill) advice when it came to her solo…Other than that I enjoyed the clip, though I do think she needs to expand on who she employs to direct them, although I’m sure she wouldn’t need to Pay her husband…I’m just glad he didn’t make a cameo in this one…

    • Podishqua August 21, 2012


  47. MRDIVABITCH August 21, 2012

    As a lamb, I must say…it’s pretty crappy…yes, she looks good, etc…but it’s just the typical Mariah video – She stands there and sings and nothing else happens. And I must say, she is at least 20 lbs away from having a s*** body.

    • Theman August 22, 2012

      Wrong, and her body is great, she looks awesome. She does not need to look like a toothpick. Thats not good…

    I Like Mariah but the song sucks and the video is really bad. I want a song just like We belong together. Come on Mariah we know you can do it! You still have it! She def looks good though.

  50. I am glad she is flopping because she has no fans left says Lady gaGa fans August 21, 2012

    I love Mariah, lawd knows I do but…..this song & this video, don’t want hear nor see either ever again.

    Yes, I should probably let her 1997 MASTERPIECE “Butterfly” go but I can’t. Oh well. I’ll just wait to see what the album is like.

    But if the lambs like it, that’s all that really matters.

  52. Triumphant August 21, 2012

    ALL HATERS & SAM !!!!


    Mimi may be emancipated, but she’s back between the ropes — into the boxing ring, specifically — in the just released a new video for her current single “Triumphant (Get ‘Em),” which also features rappers Rick Ross and Meek Mill.

    As with anything from Carey’s universe, there’s a distinct level of glittery fabulosity to the clip. Dressed to the nines in a couple of chic, midriff-baring dresses — girl looks good! — Carey is a part of rapper Meek Mill’s entourage, who’s playing the boxer at the center of the action. Rick Ross is also a sundry member of the boxer’s crew. Do you get it? The winner of the match will be triumphant!

    The best part is when Carey plays the role of a “boxing ring girl” (yes, this is a technical term — I looked it up) and holds up various cards announcing rounds. The oddest part is that, while Carey is clearly the star of the show, she relinquishes lots of precious screen time over to Meek Mill and Rick Ross for their rapping interludes. Carey would be nothing more than a pretty-girl after-thought if it weren’t for those card-carrying moments and the cuts to her in front of a — you guessed it — a glittery screen (inventive!). But, in the end, it’s all very fitting for the song’s vibe.

  56. POP ROYALTY ( F*** Yo Fav) August 22, 2012

    I’m Surprised i liked it , better yet lOVED it.

    she looks good and all smiley and just lookin’ her best since TEOM’s “It’s Like that” !!

    but she was featured in the music video too , that’s the only thing i didn’t like about it.

  57. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 22, 2012

    I love love love it! More than what I thought. Basically all one can ask for in a Mariah Carey video. It fits the song perfectly. And the song has grown on me big time. Way better than Touch my Body and Obsessed
    She looks HOT and it´s not boring at all despite not being Mariah´s biggest virtue (her videos). I mean come on, haters are so delusional, Mariah has never made Gaga or Lana del Rey´s type of videos. What the hell are you expecting?
    Not even when she was at her peak in mid 90´s (yeah that kind of peak your favs will never have) she was making memorable vids, in fact most of them were always low budget and her just singing. It is what she does, Whitney or Celine never did those kind of innovative videos either
    Again, I loved it. And specially cos at certain moments it was kind of funny to me. But in a nice way. Go get´em Mariah these Rihanna and teh rest stans sure know deep inside they are pressed cos their girls can only dream of writing, singing and producing like you

  58. aishaaguilerakeys August 22, 2012

    The song’s growing on me, the vid’s ok, nothing exceptionnal.

  59. aishaaguilerakeys August 22, 2012

    Sam, I actually think MC still has s** appeal.

    • MC August 22, 2012

      If it was Beyonce and she was 9992 years old he would say she is the sexiest woman alive. He is biased as hell….

  60. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 22, 2012

    Sam is completely laughable
    How can he see slayage in all Kelly Rowland and Brandy songs and videos and praising every single boring release by them but bash Mariah again and again? Even Mariah´s weakness (vieos) is better than those girls videos. How can that new Brandy video be so amazing and one the years best but this Mariah one is a no? Being the big difference most artists need videos to be relevant and Mariah doesn´t and never did. But still her vids are better than those two girls? Seriously. And all respect to those two, but Sam is too much

    • MC August 22, 2012

      I agree. Mariah never relied on Videos to make the song hot or the song a hit, the videos are bonuses.

  61. Bobby Bulgaria August 22, 2012

    F.U. to all the UGLY HATIN’ B****** OUT THERE… Ha ha ha…

    You’re really f*****’ jealous and you’re losin’ it…

    Have a nice Die… 🙂

  62. f****** and pigtina are done!!! August 22, 2012

    God the general population is just. Smh
    Mariah’s last push was the mimi album after that…seems like she is desperate to hang on to some relevancy and its just not working.
    I don’t Stan for Kelly Rowland,or brandy.
    But so far both of brandy’s singles,Kelly Rowland’s ice,faith tears of joy,tamia beautiful surprise,pink new singles,and a list of others are better than “triumphant”.
    Had Beyonce,Kelly,Pink,Alicia or anybody else release a song and video like this. You would throw them under the bus.
    Double standard isn’t even the half of it.
    @the man um Kelly Rowland has one gold album.
    Mariah hasn’t been able to sing for over a decade and if people are so blinded by what she could only do on her first 3 albums
    Proves why we have Rihanna on top and a slew of untalented artist reigning.

  64. Que August 22, 2012

    I’ve never seen so many hateful ppl in all of my life..How about you young fools stop focusing your attention on Mariah and listen to the words of the song because she’s basically saying “F*** all of her haters” ..And if you were smart, you’d take the song and use it for your haters. And the majority of you haters are pre-Teens that don’t know anything! You’re growing up in a world of Rihanna and Katy Perry…Etc…You’ve been brain washed by “We found love” and ” Firework”…Mariah isn’t going anywhere so just let it go!

  65. Whatever August 22, 2012

    So disappointed … The video sucks… Mariah is a great singer. The concept of video could have been great (i.e No Church in Wild) but instead of Mariah owning the video she is just a feature artist just like the song. The video lacks depth basically Meek was “the star”. Mariah is an icon but this video does nothing for this single. 🙁

    • Ziggy Stardust August 23, 2012

      I agree. I had to ask myself, “Is this Mariah’s song, or is it Meek’s or Rick’s song?” They dominated the song, which made it appear that Mariah was a guest star on it. Nick did an okay job with the directing, so I’ll cut him some slack on that. While Mariah is a beautiful woman and has a gorgeous body after giving birth to twins, I think it’s high time that she starts to cover up. She doesn’t have to walk around like an old spinster, but she doesn’t have to act as if she’s 20-years-old either.

  66. SUGA MAMA August 22, 2012

    I love Mariah but this song is just a no no.

  67. MC August 22, 2012

    It’s cool if you don’t like the video or the song. What is un-cool is when you use derogatory words and are completely hateful….lol again at those same OBVIOUS people posting using different names. x D I can’t lol

    • JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) August 22, 2012

      They are ridiculous, they don´t even give opinions.
      And yes, that´s what i´ve always said. Maybe you don´t like an artist work (and I´m hard sometimes) but you should never talk s*** about how a person looks or their private lives, that´s when you are just a sad hater.
      Everybody knows here I don´t like Rihanna or Beyonce but I never comment on their personal issues (I don´t even care either). I could say all types of things about both but I don´t, I don´t know them personally and I don´t know what´s truth or not, and even if I knew I shouldn´t bash anyone for their personal choices, it´s their f****** life, and I´m here for MUSIC

  68. videosux August 22, 2012

    Ok, I didn’t except much of anything from this turkey of a song or video but, what is pissing off is all these hatred being thrown at women who have NOTHING w/ Carey (i.e. Janet, Beyonce, Ciara etc.) just to make Carey look good or her fans feel better. There is no need for it.

    • MC August 22, 2012

      Maybe those stans of Janet, Beyonce, Ciara, Rihanna shouldn’t come here and be all kinds of disrespectful. Janet’s not relevant anymore (she is an icon so it doesn’t really matter), Rihanna can’t sing, Ciara flopped hard (she is going to get it this time though….hopefully), and Beyonce…..(whatever)

      The point is if you come for Mimi then we will come for your fave.

      Obviously not because it seems to keep you interested! Posting twice in a row and under a different name. You even took the time to look up where ‘triumphant’ currently sits on the itunes chart…Time for a new hobby! xx

    • Bobby Bulgaria August 23, 2012

      OBSESSED too much…? Ha ha…

  71. Josh August 23, 2012

    People just wait for Mariah to come up with new stuff just so they can criticize it. People just love to HATE Mariah, she’s a talented songbird that nobody else’s voice can hold a candle to and no matter how old she is she still looks “LIKE SHE”S 20” even better then some of the younger artist’s LOL…Bottom line she’s an AMAZING singer and you irrelevant haters don’t make or break her. Your opinion is a “non mutha f***in factor”!!!!!!! Hail the queen!

  72. Foreal… August 23, 2012

    Damn there are sooooo many haters here… Get a life.. Yeah shes 42 and how is this dressing like a s***? she wearing a two piece skirt and gowns, and has the body to do it.. wtf.. What is she supposed to wear a damn turtle neck sweater.. be real.. she looks bomb.. the concept is great and the song has an amazing message other than being f***** or killing people.. yall people disgust me.. the music industry has turned into a bunch of this poppy b******* thats out right now but she knows exactly what she is doing and the R&B era is bout to arise again and then what is the rest gonna do?? how bout get an actual vocal lesson or two might help.. appreciate good music and messages people.. stop fronting and hating cause she still the baddest in the game at 42 with more number 1’s than any other female, song of the decade for 2 decades in a row and world music awards artist of the millenium.. she dont gotta prove s***.. just stop hating.. she makin her papah. go out and get yours..

  73. Gr3g August 23, 2012

    I’m not a fan of this version of the song but I thought she looked really good. The Pulse Remix is my favorite version of this song. I don’t get the hate on Nick for doing the video. I have liked all the videos he has directed. As long as she looks good in it then I could care less about her clothing choices and especially in a video. But I would like to see her do something completely different with her hair. Given that the album doesn’t drop for awhile I’m hoping the feedback on this song is taken into consideration and spares us of unnecessary collabos.

  74. Todd August 27, 2012

    The video is great,she looks amazing,the song has a message(i havent heard a song with nice lyrics this year) and is such a grower. I dont give a s*** about numbers or chart success, MC is the best in my eyes! Bye

  75. Todd August 27, 2012

    PS :TGJ, yall are LAME!
