With just two weeks to go before the release of her fourteenth studio album, titled Me. I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse, the ever-evolving Mariah Carey unveils the lead single from her forthcoming LP with a track called "Thirsty," featuring Atlanta's own Rich Homie Quan.
Following up more emotionally in-tune ballads like the Miguel-assisted "#Beautiful" and "You're Mine (Eternal)," "Thirsty" finds Mariah taking a different approach, contemptuously sing-rapping about an especially, well, thirsty love over a trap beat reminiscient of Kanye and Jay's "Paris." The new single also continues MC's streak of unlikely collaborations with rising A-Town rappers (anyone remember that song with Gucci Mane?), a trend we can't help but endorse.
After premiering this morning on REVOLT's The Breakfast Club, we're excited to share the new track with you right here, right now. Listen to "Thirsty" above, and pre-order Mariah's new album here.
