The song, which may come as a surprise to Mariah’s fans seeing that it sounds so different from her previous work, has been confirmed as the next song to be lifted off of her forthcoming album Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse.
‘Thirsty’ which saw its premiere earlier this morning on the Breakfast Club is a certified banger.
The beat sounds very similar to Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s N-ggas in Paris, while the lyrics sound like they were written about Nicki Minaj. Haha, I’m just playing!
It features Rich Homie Quan, which is strange because he doesn’t actually do anything on the song other than repeat a certain line in the chorus. Nevertheless, the song is nice.
Judging from this song alone, I’d say that Mariah is definitely changing up her tone a little — she’s heading for that uptempo, (dare I say it) ratchet route. But Mariah’s ratchet is sort of classy… if that makes sense.
For Mariah to sing about a guy, and then goes on to call him “thirsty,” you know this album is going to be juicy — just imagine what the rest of the record is going to sound like.
MiMi’s album is expected to drop May 27th! You can hear the song below and tell us your thoughts.
