Mariah's New Song Is Mostly About Other Rappers

Mariah Carey just dropped her new single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)," which is an inspirational R&B slow jam about not losing faith in your dreams, not letting negative attitudes get you down, etc. [LISTEN TO THE SONG HERE]

It's a decent track and Mariah sounds good on it, but if we're keeping it 100, then it doesn't really sound like a Mariah Carey song. The featured verses by rapper Rick Ross and Meek Mill are so dominant---and Mariah's voice is mixed so low beneath the drum track---that she seems like the guest vocalist, not the main event.I'll be interested to see if this song succeed, especially because it's got a very R&B sound, and traditional R&B hasn't really been popular for a few years.

If you'll pardon me, I'll go back to listening to "We Belong Together"...
