8.6.12 - New Music - Mariah Carey
When I first heard Mariah Carey’s (your new American Idol judge y’all!) new single “Triumphant (Get ‘Em) (ft. Rick Ross and Meek Mill)”, I wasn’t exactly thrilled. I mean, I have never been the biggest Mariah fan in the first place, so already we’re starting from a lowpoint. But then add that the song was typical and kind of just…meh…and I just figured I wouldn’t bother writing about it. Plus, it isn’t really pop, so that’s a good enough reason not to for me.
If you haven’t heard it yet…
I just feel like we have heard this before from Mariah. And by “this” I don’t mean something similar, I mean this.
BUT THEN a friend introduced me to a remix of this song that has already emerged as the remix. It keeps the song almost the same (it doesn’t drastically change too many things), but it does give it just that little bit of “oomph” that the song was missing before. The remix is a throwback, oldschool kind of jam, and boy does it save this tune.
Seeeee!?! So much better, right?!?!
I supremely hope that when this song is sent out to radio and all that, they send the remix. They probably won’t, but we can keep our fingers crossed.
It appears that neither version is available for download…yet. The song isn’t available until August 14th, but let’s see if before then they change their mind and go with the remix.
PS – Who did the remix? Someone give them a small award. Like, a piece of paper you printed yourself, but it still has some meaning.
