Mariah, Rick and Meek take to the boxing ring in the official video for “Triumphant” directed by Mariah’s husband Nick Cannon. Check it out below..
Nick did a good job. I give him a B+. Mariah is BACK and Ricky is ……
I think the video was boring but that is not all his fault. The song itself is subpar (even though it has a “good” message).
@Neil-I understand what you are saying. While many people can sing, you need to get the right vocal coach that will show them what ranges they can really hit and stay at. That too, will make sure their voices are preserved. I did notice that Mariah’s voice is NOT what it was, green tea and resting her vocal cords will help keep her in the game longer.
Sorry; I posted this comment on the wrong line.
I gotta say that I was also nervous when I heard that Nick was directing the video, but I think its pretty good. HOWEVER, If I know Mariah as good as I feel like I know her (lol) I know shes gonna come with a BANGER right before the album is about to drop. I feel like shes just making some noise right now to let the ppl know shes about to take over, she always does.
This was alright. Don’t anybody wish that Mariah would just SANG?
Good point…mariah need to pull a “We belong together!”
We all wish this would happen, but Mariah is experiencing the vocal decline that naturally comes with age, and vocal damage as a result of over-singing and poor vocal preservation technique. She was a phenomenal vocalists, but what the industry need to understand is that vocal cords arent guitars and pianos…they’re body parts..very fragile ones, in fact. People werent made to be singing at the top of their lungs 150-200 nights a year. Rest is needed…look what happened to Adele (smoking accelerated this of course). Mariah just isnt able to do it anymore. Some singers such as Patti LaBelle have been lucky/blessed to have experienced little decline…but for the most part, most singers experience it. From Whitney, to Alicia Keys (Compare her 2001 voice to her voice now), Aretha…etc. (Yes, I’ve taken drug-use into account)
To the stans: “poor vocal preservation technique” isnt synonimous to “she cant sing”…it simply means that there are techniques that promote vocal health, and she doesnt know/apply them. Whitney was in the same boat…so was Amy Winehouse; yes, they were taking drugs, which aggravated things, but the constant belting, slamming vocal cords together, took their toll.
If you don’t connect with women of your own age then may be it’s time you explored the hidden pleasures of an age gap relationship Older women can bring an exciting new dimension to relationships —-cougarloving.ｃ0m—- is the ideal place to discover what you really want from a relationship.
Mariah can still SANG, but I mean damn, I love she soft soothing sexualness lol. This new album will def have some ballads! Yall wait!
Nick Canon is a lucky man.
Whatever…Neil made the correct point. This woman can’t sing anymore so she has to go to others to help prop her up. The vocal range is all but gone.
She’s worn that same golden mini dress in every music video lol. We get it, you still “got it”. Wear something else.
it’s her music video “ensemble” lol. Remember when she insisted on always using that word to describe her wardrobe choices? lol…gotta love Mariah
OMG!!!! I was thinking the same EXACT thing! Damn Mariah, switch up the moves, those hand gestures and that DRESS!!!…You been rockin’ that thing since the 90s! Ummm…the song is OK!
Lol I agree!! Plus she looks kinda uncoordinated in her movement. I would love to see how she is in da cluub!
you had me at Mariah….then lost me at ‘directed by Nick Cannon’

well said Neil.
Finally someone put out some positive music…..GO MARIAH!
like Dale responded I’m amazed that a student can earn $4010 in 4 weeks on the computer. did you see this website (Click on menu Home more information) http://goo.gl/CJgRA
Finally a track with an uplifting message and not about sex and shaking ur ass.
I like this song better now I have seen the video, weird. This song will do well. She may get her Number 1 Hit again.
This sucks so bad and not only sucking bad. This is basic. Mariah Carey was better when she was being handled by Tommy Mottola. At least, then she had great ballads and some fusion of pop/hip-hop. This is just sad.
Right. Tommy Mottola was her “Clive Davis”…same thing happened when Whitney took a little more creative control; the quality of her music went down. They both went from torch songs and power ballads, to pseudo hip-hop/r&b tracks. Celine Dion, on the other hand, stuck to what made her who she is in the music, and look where she’s at.
I love the message and Mariah’s voice, that is the ONLY reason I watched this video; BUT I think the video should have went in another direction. I get what the video was depicting, I just thought with life as it is, a different scenerio should’ve been showed; from an every day experience. Especially with the economy being how it is, with unemployment; maybe showing people still being “Triumphant” after being laid off. Never giving up after being knocked down by life and it finally paying off. I’m tired of her videos being all about her being “golden” and showing off her not all that figure, we get it; and see you. Go a little deeper than visual appearances. I am also tired of rappers such as Rick Ross’s high ass being all in the videos. These are the images being showed to our youth and weak minded individuals, who think getting high and spending all your damn money on clothes and jewelry is all good. I hope people pay attention to MANY of our black celebrities who have had money but are now broke because they didn’t spend their money wisely. They are not always broke because someone else mismanaged their money; MOST of the time there is no one to blame but themselves.
Team Mariah! and Nick!
THIS IS A MARIAH CAREY FEATURE! I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS IS HER SONG AND SHE LOOKS AND SOUNDS LIKE THE FEATURE!
Does she really wanna dress like a cheap whore for her entire life? I mean, damn, she’ll be 50 soon and still looking like she stepped out of Rainbow with heels from gojane.com. Pull it together, Mimi!
This just seems so “Honey” to me…Stop it with the gold mini already…Ugh!!!!
Nah Mariah didn’t lose it. She can still sing the same she just dumbed down her voice for this song. I can guarantee she’s singing on her new album. She can still sing circles around any of these broads that’s out right now. I agree it does remind me of honey. The video that is with all this gold and Meek Mills face makes me angry.
I was thinking the same thing and I’m not even a real fan of hers BUT I do like this song.
That is the same thing I was thinking. She can’t sing a song like ”triumphant” like she would sing a ballad. She has a great voice and her body is on point, I am a Mariah fan and am looking forward to the album.
Always liked Mariah’s music. Glad she is back.
Unfortunately, Mariah has regressed into being a one-dimensional artist again. All she did was go from safe to sexy, from the little black dress to the little gold dress, from no movement to the same hair flipping had gestures. Regardless of her image, what always made her stand out was her singing and song quality. Without that, she will just fade into the background. We already have enough singers who are younger who are providing mediocrity. Step it up or be replaced by others with sub-par talent.
YES!!1 I will always be a Mariah fan!!!
That voice = longevity. Her body is sick and she has a nice sized derriere. Lucky man, nick cannon, this video reminds me of that Honey video with Mase and Puffy.
IM SORRY BUT WHO SONG IS THIS AGAIN???? THIS SEEMS LIKE A RICK ROSS AND MEEK SONG AND SHE WAS FEATURED IN IT…NOT A GOOD COME BACK TRACK IF U ASK ME #IJS
i cant tell whose song it is mariah looks and sounds as if shes just featured in the song to me….i hate when singers do this when they need a comback or press for their single the jump on the dicks of rappers or producers who have the most radio/music exsposure at that time to bring attention and hype…love MC and the message of the song but wish she had more shine in it
The video was ok for what it’s worth, but I’ve been waiting on someone to comment on the faulty editing that’s been done around her stomach area. It takes an eagle eye to catch it.
Song is wack. Mariah please get a new singing style.
