On this day in 2012, Mariah Carey released ‘Triumphant’, featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill.
It became her sixteenth #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart.
Mariah has said the motivational song was written in a period where her then-husband Nick Cannon was in the hospital suffering mild kidney failure, and her friend, Whitney Houston passed away.
At the time, ‘Triumphant’ was intended to be the lead single for Mariah’s upcoming album, however it ended up being a stand-alone single.
Nick Cannon directed the music video.
Mariah’s Caesars Palace residency in Las Vegas, ‘The Butterfly Returns’, is currently underway and will continue through to September. She will also tour Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe later in the year. Head to http://www.mariahcarey.com/tour for dates and tickets.
