Mariah Carey‘s new single “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” is, to put it delicately, less than a triumph — the single barely sneaked onto the R&B/Hip-Hop charts (coming in at #97), and didn’t even manage to make it onto the Hot 100. Perhaps an entertaining video will help boost terrifyingly disappointing sales?
In the 30-second clip for Carey’s video for her much-maligned song, Meek Mill gets in the ring as Mimi and Rick Ross (wearing a fur coat that could make every member of PETA faint) watch his boxing match from the front row. We also get a few shots of Carey standing stiffly in front of a gold backdrop, while sporting a gold dress and golden hair. Though she manages to wave her arms around like the diva she is, she looks way uncomfortable up there.
The full video for “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” drops tomorrow (Tuesday, August 21). Think we’ll get a video for every version of Mimi’s single?
