Watch!: Mariah Carey Shines, Meek Mill Fights in ‘Triumphant’ Clip

‘Rawr’ – Mariah

I’ve been giggling at what I think has to be one of the most random combinations in music — Mariah Carey and Philadelphia MC Meek Mill. Of course the connection comes from Rick Ross, Meek is part of his Maybach Music crew and both the “I’m a Boss” rapper and Ross deliver verses on Mariah’s newest single “Triumphant (Get ‘Em).” Check out Mariah’s new clip for the track, where she’s in her trademark synthetic clothing, Meek Mill is channeling Rocky as a boxer in a ring and Ross is doing what he does best, sitting somewhere in a fur coat, raising the corner of his lip as he raps, like some trap version of Billy Idol. Said Mariah of working with her boys:

“Working with Ross and Meek on the same record was incredible,” Mariah Carey told media on a conference call today (August 2). “Obviously Ross is a star and everybody loves him. I’m a fan of his music. I really, really wanted to work with him. I love the tone of his voice. I think the contrast of his voice and mine would be something special. I always like to do collaborations that people might think are different.”
