After previewed in a 30-second snippet, Mariah Carey's latest single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" has been finally released in its full version. Featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill, the song opens with the Pennsylvania rapper spitting his lines, "I remember they said that it ain't my turn/ But it ain't confirmed/ Then the tables turned."

The R&B diva follows it by singing, "Can't fall down stay triumphant keep on living/ Stay on your toes/ Get off the ropes/ Don't let em ever count you out/ Realize all things are possible/ In your heart who's the greatest/ Reach for the stars," before Rozay delivers another rapping part.

On a conference call Thursday, August 2, Mariah talked about the collaborative track, "Working with Ross and Meek on the same record was incredible. Obviously Ross is a star and everybody loves him. I'm a fan of his music. I really, really wanted to work with him."

She continued singing praises for both Rozay and Meek, "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. Meek adds an excitement, a newness to the record that is pretty rare right now."

Brian Michael Cox, who co-wrote and co-produced the single along with the songstress and Jermaine Dupri, told MTV, "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." He added, "I expect that this record's going to be a huge record. I expect that this is going to be one of her bigger albums."

"Triumphant" is going to be featured in Mariah's upcoming album which is still untitled. She said about the new record, "I'm collaborating with a lot of my favorite people but the main thing is [that] I'm not trying to follow any particular trend. I want it to be well received. I want to stay true to myself and the music that I love and make the fans happy."

Agreed. I'm not really clear as to what Mariah is thinking releasing this as a lead single, but hopefully she has a few tricks up her sleeve. It's a decent song (considering she's only singing the hooks and it's hers) but nothing close to what I was expecting. Still love Mariah, just a little disappointed

Great to see Mariah back!! I love Mariah on this. she sounds awesome - my only problem with it is that there is not enough Mariah! It sounds more like she's the fill in extra to a rappers track and it doesn't really seem like it's her song. It should be Rick Ross and Meek Mill Ft. Mariah Carey. Shame :(
