Following the premiere of her new single ‘Triumphant (Get ‘Em)’ yesterday, Mariah Carey took place in a conference call where she spoke about the track and why she chose Rick Ross and Meek Mill to make guest appearances.
“Working with Ross and Meek on the same record was incredible,” said Carey. “Obviously, Rick Ross is a huge star and everybody loves him. I am a fan of his music. I really wanted to work with him. I love the tone of his voice and I felt the contrast between his voice and my voice was going to be something special. I love to do collaborations that people might think are different, so that was nice.”
She revealed that the song was “written during some difficult times and to inspire other people. That’s why it was nice that both Rick and Meek got on the record. It’s not, ‘Oh, it’s inspirational,’ but it has a message to it. They understood that.”
Carey also spoke on her upcoming album saying it wouldn’t be “following any particular trend. I want it to be well-received and I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy.”
She added that the album wouldn’t be given a title until it’s complete. “I’ve gotta live with it for a little while and then decide,” she said.
