I love Meek Mill and Rick Ross. Maybach and G.O.O.D Music are running the rap game now.

The song is ok, may have to grow on me. I can't see it being a hit though as these types of songs don't really chart well. But it's always nice to have Mimi back making new music.

I like it. The beat is HOT. But I dont love it. How the hell the 1st 2 minutes she sings only the chorus? And this is her song. After she comes in the song just feels so much better. I could do without Rick Ross and damn sure Meek Mill. R&B stations are gonna eat this all the way up. Maybe it'll grow on me.

But Im happy her album is coming out this year

Yeah it's weird she comes across as a guest vocalist on her own song, but I actually really like it. First time hearing it and I like right away!!

Nice to have Mim back!

Gdsimmons
Aug 3rd, 2012, 04:37 AM
Ok I just re-listened to it. I still dont love it but I like it more. After listening to the words Rick Ross' verse doesnt fit at all. Meek Mill talked about coming up and coming out of something. Rick Ross was talking about throwing dough and stripper poles. They couldve cut Rick Ross and made Mariah an extra verse or something and the song would be better.

Knew it wouldn't be long before the remixes started popping up. She will need that for mainstream radio- they won't touch the original. I actually prefer the original, the pop one isn't too bad just sounds like every other song these days...

a spot-on review from slant:

Mariah Carey might be the most reactionary pop star of all time. Her creative decisions are seemly driven not by an artistic muse, but by a desire to maintain commercial viability. It's likely the result of being so intimately involved with her expectedly money-minded record-label handlers early in her career, when she was amassing gold and breaking records like Michael Phelps. Mariah has always been obsessed with the past (specifically, recreating it), sometimes resulting in sublime nostalgia (as on "The Roof"), but more often coming off as pathologically regressive (embodied by her perpetuation of the male fantasy of woman-as-little-girl, which neutralizes whatever command it might seem like she has over her own sexual image). If you thought motherhood might change Mimi's tune, or at least push her in a new direction, her new single's artwork, previewed by the singer a few days ago, quickly put those hopes to rest: Scantily clad in a flesh-colored, peek-a-boo "dress," Mariah is airbrushed into a literal cartoon version of herself…circa 1997, of course.

So, it should come as no surprise that Mariah would follow-up 2009's Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, which was tellingly both rapper-free and a commercial disappointment, with "Triumphant (Get 'Em)," a dated hip-hop track produced by Jermaine Dupri in the same manner a sick dog produces a bowel movement. It's easily the worst lead single (possibly the worst single, period) of her two-decade-plus career. JD's beyond-tired hype-man routine and guest raps by Rick Ross and newcomer Meek Mill dominate the first half of the song, with Mariah literally serving as a hook girl on a track that sorely lacks a strong hook. She finally unleashes a breathy verse of her own about two-thirds of the way through—something about breaking free of chains, seeing mountaintops, reaching for stars, and other brainless platitudes that ostensibly lead to, according to Ross, throwing money at strippers and running highway tolls. It's not just uninspiring, it's downright demoralizing.

The song debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number 144 for the issue dated August 15, 2012.

It's no "Fantasy," but it's definitely better than "Through the Rain." And it's great to hear her sing well again; just wish she'd done more of it on "Triumphant."
