American Idol Season 12 judge Mariah Carey is “Triumphant” today, as her first new single in two years takes the world by storm!

The track, featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill, is the first peek at Mariah’s upcoming 14th studio album.

She elaborated later on which lyrics were of significance, pointing to the words, “In spite of the chains that bind you, you can see the mountaintop, it’s not too far” and writing, “The message of #Triumphant is very close to my heart and I know you can relate to it too.”
