As we anxiously await the release of her new video for “Triumphant (Get’Em)” featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill, Mariah Carey teased pictures from the video set on Instagram to tide fans over. With the word “TRIUMPHANT” boldly splayed across the back of his golden robe, Meek stars in the Nick Cannon-directed video as a boxer heading into the ring with Mimi and Ross at his side, hoping to demolish and triumph against his competition.
The ever-glamorous Carey does not disappoint in the pictures, looking like a Hollywood starlet in diamonds and a curve-hugging gold dress while Ross lives up to his Don status in a sharp suit and floor-length fur coat.
The song, co-produced by Bryan-Michael Cox and Carey’s right-hand man, Jermaine Dupri, is the first single being released off of Carey’s highly anticipated upcoming album, which is due out next year. Cox told MTV News, “This song is kind of inspirational. It’s close to her heart, and I think her fans are going to really, really be emotionally attached to this song.” Mimi, who co-wrote the song, tweeted that she wrote this song during a “difficult time” and by the title, we are sure she will come out on top.
