Mariah’s “Triumphant” return to music, after popping out two (2) babies and marrying one (1) Nick Cannon, turned out to be not so much so after the single failed to impress critics and dropped to No. 50 iTunes soon after its release. Fans even notes that this Carey-penned track didn’t really seem like one—the diva is barely on the song itself. So much so, that Carey’s camp released three (3) versions of the song: the original, a “vintage throwback” and an uptempo remix. Problem not-so-solved, but Carey claims that the song’s spirit, written when Cannon was in the hospital with acute kidney failure earlier this year, will rise above. The lyrics speak as much. So let’s dig in.
