New Song: Mariah Carey – ‘GTFO’

Published: Thursday 13th Sep 2018 by Sam

Mariah Carey is back!

The diva supreme has unwrapped new single ‘GTFO.’

Announced just one day ago, the song’s arrival brings with it the first taste of Carey’s 15th studio album, her first since 2014’s ‘Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.’

The song sees Mimi team up with producer Nineteen85, who has helmed a number a major hits for Drake (‘One Dance’ and ‘Hotline Bling’).

With a refreshed sound, does Mariah deliver? Listen below and let us know…

This makes for an engaging listen.

Granted the profanity is a little “ugh,” the production – while still soulful – is a welcome switch-up for Mimi. It’s very 2000-and-now, while also packing appeal for her core base.

Lyrically, she’s always compelling with her pen.

Word is that ‘GTFO’ is being worked as a buzz track, with the “single-single” set to follow shortly.

If indeed this is the case, then we’re all for it.

    I AM OBSESSED! Go Mariah Carey, the icing on the cake would be amazing if Drake was on the track. But other than that I LOVE IT! Yaaaaas! Welcome back LEGENDARY QUEEN!

    • Jackx September 13, 2018

      Yesss that would be straight 🔥🔥

  3. @Kurtz September 13, 2018

    It’s a bop I do like it ALOT! But I do hope it’s a buzz track and not the 1st single!
    But then if the video does drop tomorrow
    That’ll mean it’s the single nah?

    • Shaquiiii September 13, 2018

      Yep Buzz track, first single is out Oct 5

      • @Kurtz September 13, 2018

        I just read now it’s called “With You”

    The problem is she’s wasting hype and free press on another so-so buzz single. Buzz singles don’t do anything when you’re last few songs didn’t connect with the public…(see X-tina Accelerate, Gwen Stefani, Fergie, J-lo, Britney etc). Even if the next song is fire she won’t get the press and hype she’s getting from this lesser version of Faded. To me this is kind of dated and she needs more of an update and something more upbeat

    Dull dull dull, and the swearing just seems desperate. High pitched raspy vocals too. So disappointed!

  6. DestinyBoston September 13, 2018

    How bout you .. record the same song with strong fire vocals and not whisper … gtfo?

  7. Jay Jay September 13, 2018

    I like it! My 2000 queens are coming back. Cici, Mimi, soon RiRi is dropping music….yess! I do think RiRi is coming in 2019 though. She has a lot going on right now so I wouldn’t surprise if we get something by January or February

    How about YOU Mariah GTFO with this mess of a song…

    • Anon September 13, 2018


    • Keyth September 14, 2018

      Better than what I’ve heard from her lately. But it sounds like those melodies on the album you use to sedgeway into the next song. #stepupyogame

  12. JOHNVIDAL September 13, 2018

    I don´t know bish. I love her to death forever but I have just not been enjoying her last releases. This is only appealing to a very particular public. Mainly some black people in the USA and that´s it. I have been listening to Triumphant these last few days after such a long time without doing so and let me tell that is was fire. That song gives me positivity and amazing vibes everytime I listent to it. Yes it was dated too and people didn´t like the many rappers in teh song. But it was hot. . Then #beautiful was really great. FRESH stuff. A big part of that album of hers that came after those singles was good too. And Almost Home too. Definitely. But baby she has now put herself in this little box when it comes to her traditional releases (meaning not taking into account the many new Xmas stuff and music for films) and everything now is this uneventful R&B that everybody forgets a month later. I always say Drake´s music is forgettable despite the success, so imagine where all these other releases from artists who are not successful on the charts atm will go. 98% of the people don´t care abouut this music. If it is what she wants to create then it´s ok, because she has done it all. I have nothing to say about that. One of the queens of pop music forever. But if what she was trying with these releases is to have success… just no. It´s an obvious no. This is just like “I don´t”. Who cares about that song? I don´t know, maybe it is what she can do with her current vocal condition. Regarless love her forever and I´ll keep having only good words about her talent.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B September 13, 2018

      Well Mariah Carey is black, her favorite artists are black, her children are black, her producers are black, her background singers are black… let her make “black” music if that’s what you’d like to label it. I actually like this song it’s cute.. Triumphant was ok but comeon don’t use that as a reference point cause it was NOT all that. And it was black.. much “blacker” than this.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 13, 2018

        You didn´t get any point I see. You could have saved your reply. Totally.

      • SMH September 13, 2018

        Lol Mariah Carey is not black, no matter what her PR team tells you.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B September 13, 2018

        @smh Alfred Carey, her dad, is a straight up Harlem negro. Youre delusional. Look at her brother sister and nephew. They look like straight up half breeds as does MC

        @China this whole entire blog, is invented, ran by and written by men. No women. How can you call out a man coming to a man made and man ran blog. Rather you go to a female ran blog and shame someone as John is a man coming to a mans blog. Girl..

  13. Suicide Blonde September 13, 2018

    It got me the moment she opened her mouth, very pleasant and relaxing, I like it.

  14. Drake Upset September 13, 2018

    Even after being in the game for so long, Mariah still delivers. Awesome!!! can’t wait for the second.

  15. Lake Erie September 13, 2018

    I like it.

  16. IG @mixedboy September 13, 2018

    I like it. Smart move for a buzz single. It’s catchy! The GTFO part has people talking and Mariah is in the news because of “singing” and not any other tabloid stories. I like the shift in production and producers. Hopefully she used many new ones. Can’t wait to hear the full project.

  17. Jim September 13, 2018

    The full song is much better than the snippet I heard yesterday, so that’s good.

  18. M September 13, 2018

    Definitely feeling it! Love the ambiant vibe and the way she rides the beat effortlessly. It’s definitely great as a buzz single to get her back into the current music scene, and the video is coming tomorrow and the official lead single “With You” on Oct 5th!

  19. Haterz Gon’ Hate September 13, 2018

    I’ve been following Mariah since the beginning and where as this is no ‘Vision of Love’ or ‘Anytime You Need A Friend’ it’s lyrically very Diva Mariah-Tongue-In-Cheek and is pretty laid back and Chill. it does what it needs to for s buzz single. I LIKE IT!!! 😎

    • Casual September 13, 2018

      Can you imagine if Mariah Carey came out with a Vision of Love . . . or Forever . . . or Emotions . . . or Rolling in the Deep? MC is 49 and needs to be going for timeless songs rather than trendy. This song is suitable for a much-younger artist, and while it’s nice, I’m not sure it’s a hit.

      • Audreyherbsburn September 13, 2018

        When your entire discography is full of classic and timeless music, I think it’s well deserved to be able to do trendy and fun music as well.

      • 2 Slice Hilly September 13, 2018

        thank you..

  20. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B September 13, 2018

    I like it. Very understated and clean!

  21. Hmmm September 13, 2018

    Dry vocals, no identifiable melody, uninspired and contrived lyrics…no thank you. I love you Slayriah but this is below you.

  22. Olusheyi September 13, 2018

    This has to grow on me

  23. Danzou is laughing with how the TROLLS are getting busted these days September 13, 2018

    If she embraced her black side more and less of her white said then I’ll hit play and listen to her.

    • Danzou is laughing with how the TROLLS are getting busted these days September 13, 2018

      As a biracial man I just feel that someone as big as Mariah Carey can do more to embrace both side equally that’s all I mean.

      • 2 Slice Hilly September 13, 2018

        damn right

    • pon_De September 13, 2018

      What does embracing her black side more even mean? She’s been making RnB for the last 20+ years, put numerous other black artists on (Jay-Z got the DefJam president job on her recommendation just as an example). She has children with a black man, etc etc. You aren’t making any sense. Make it make sense.

  24. tika September 13, 2018

    Its a nice smooth entrance back in the game. i play it while getting my day started

  25. 2 Slice Hilly September 13, 2018

    this bish need ta gtf-OUTTA HEA with that whisper sangin s***. been done with that.

  26. pon_De September 13, 2018

    this is the vibe when you are finished, done, finito with the situation and just need to deliver that last read before you spark the blunt and relax.

  27. SMH September 13, 2018

    Very cute song, but it sounds like it should have been on Toni Braxton’s S** and Cigarettes album, who ironically has a song on there called FOH.

  28. DanYiel Iman September 13, 2018

    I like her sound she’s always had a richness to her voice!!

  29. #TheTruth September 13, 2018

    Hmmm Mariah… I’ll start saying I know her whole catalogue, even some unreleased tracks and she’s pretty much my favorite voice.
    I do understand that for many years she didn’t exactly do the music she wanted to.
    And that she’s accomplished more than enough to record the type of music she wants to.
    However, let’s keep it real, I’m not talking around her hardcore fans, most people who used to follow her career back in the day stop caring long time ago.
    That song will do nothing for her career nor broaden her audience. At best, it’s good enough for a bonus track.
    I cannot believe those producers who get to work with a legend have nothing better on the table for her.
    Moreover, why not releasing the song they think is the strongest ? Versus going for that buzz crap that may end up having the opposite effect.
    I know she will deliver with the album. But it’s always been a struggle to pick singles and promote her properly. Keep it together please. Lately everything has been on point. We all want to see you win.

    • Leesharn September 13, 2018

      I hope your knowledge includes her dance remixes too!

    • JOHNVIDAL September 13, 2018

      Yes total agreement. I know her music as well as you and I think the same.

    • #TheTruth September 13, 2018

      Of course, Mariah has epic remixes with some of her best studio vocals.
      I just don’t know how they can think that putting this song out is going to bring in interest for what’s next.
      It’s good for her hardcore fans but at this point in her career she needs attention from a wider audience, not just her « lambily ». And this song is not going to do that.
      I really hope that this upcoming single will be a winner with great vocals.
      I could totally see her doing a dramatic accapella/piano intro like « You’re so cold » then getting into a more upbeat type of track, modern with some retro element, a nice beat with live orchestration and crazy runs and adlibs.

  30. AnonymousTruth September 13, 2018

    This sound like an album interlude …

    • The Truth September 13, 2018

      And that’s what’s so fascinating about it. How many times have you wanetd your fav to test out releasing an interlude-esque song. Interludes are sometimes brilliant mini records!

      GTFO is s*** and fire. Mimi is genius releasing an interlude-esque song as a buzz track!

  31. ~The Arcade~ September 13, 2018

    hmmm… I’m not sure how to feel about her singing GTFO all the while whispering and serenading at the same time lol. It seems like in today’s musical climate, the formula of a song title must be in acronym form, with a few curse words added in here and there; in order to get people’s attention.

    I don’t blame her for doing that, but I’m not here for it either.

  32. whhhewchil123 September 13, 2018

    song is a banger perfect time & i’d love to see her collab with a new singer like Ella mai or someone like that song bangs

  33. Mark111 September 13, 2018

    Not bad, but not a huge hit, but why? You only have a good 5 years of prime in this game, if you can get to 10, you’re great, if you can pass 20, you’re a legend. 20 is the max, anything after is touring off of your catalog, releasing a song here and there to kick off the next tour. You don’t have to make a comeback when you’re already a legend. With that said, Mariah could get more creative, but this is an artist that been writing for the pass 30 years, we pretty much seen the best she can do with a pen. I just feel that her and Janet doesn’t have to cater to what’s in NOW, they entered the level what Franklin, Wonder and so on has been in.

  35. Maxx September 13, 2018

    I can listen to Maria raspy, belting, screeching, screaming…I just love her sound…..I bet all of you that are hating or dislike the song will be the same ones humming along & singing loudly in your car to GTFO after a few listens…it will grow on ya. Plus this is just to give her fans a little taste before she comes out with that true BANGER! I’m here for all of it Mariah!!

    • The Truth September 13, 2018

      Thank you. They all sound stupid. They will literally be banging this smooth hit on the regular. People have always wanted to release this type of smooth track on the radio, and i’m so glad she changed up and went with S E X Y single for once in her career.

      DO YOU MIMI.

  36. eric September 13, 2018

    The sound is refreshing, but I wish it wasn’t written to be so repetitive like Janet’s new song. Oh well.
