New Music: Mariah Carey f/ Rich Homie Quan – ‘Thirsty’

Thirsty

Grab some water. After serenading the lovers on the Trey Songz-assisted “You’re Mine (Eternal),” Mariah Carey takes it to the club on her brand new single “Thirsty.” On the Hit-Boy-produced banger (think “Ni**as in Paris”), the pop diva puts her man on blast, while Rich Homie Quan delivers a verse.

“You tryna be a boss now / Thinkin’ you a G now / Boy, you just looking thirsty,” sings Mimi.

Her 14th album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse arrives May 27 featuring Nas, Wale, Miguel, and Fabolous.

She will also receive the Icon Award and open this year’s World Music Awards later this month.

Stream both versions, with and without Rich Homie Quan, below.

    #Beautiful still remains the best song out of the album YET.

    What is this over-produced mess?!

    ———–

    Second of all ….. What is with J.Lo & Mariah accepting these ‘Icon’ award, they have been in the industry for many decades
    Both have accomplish so much ( I really could go on for days)

    They should be getting ‘Legend’ award.

    @KENBARBUK, I agree about #Beautiful and this song being over produced. It’s too busy and sounds noisy. Where is the power BALLAD????

    Julian Donnell Reply:

    @_naterboy_, no one wants a power ballad at the start of summer. Come on now. We want her to go #1. Not fall behind with a slow song like “You’re mine eternal” I love the song but only fans love that Mariah. We want new fans and old fans to fall in love and fall in love again. It takes getting on top to so so.

  12. ME. I AM DISAPPOINTED

    She sure is ‘thirsty’ for a hit.

    What’s with these unnecessary remixes?

    [Reply]

    daley Reply:

    She does remixes always has always will.. In order for her to be played in 2014 she needs a remix..She is over 40 the industry is biased towards women over a certain age THE DIVA can no longer do it alone,

  14. Chance

    This is TERRIBLE. Worse than “Triumphant.” What is this recycled beat?

    How did she go from “#Beautiful” to this crap? What happened to her GOOD R&B?

    [Reply]

    Alejandro TheIcon Reply:

    @Chance, that phase is dead n gon..she gave yall r&b and yall didnt buy….TRUTH be told Mariah has always been pop/hip hop……she is basically a chameleon of craft this song is wat this album needs….relevance…the 90s r gone…welcome to the new age song is 10/10…vocals..style…lyrics..beat..execution!

    [Reply]

  15. bobs

    This song sucks. She’s trying so hard and maybe she just has too much input. She has an ear for total flops. She needs to let a producer make some decisions here.

    On the real, this track is a messy rip off of Niggas In Paris. She sounds like shit and she looks busted in that picture. #Beautiful was such a great song. What is going through her head? There have to be better songs than this on the album.

    [Reply]

  18. Jackson

    On the real, she sounds busted, she looks busted, and there’s gotta be better on the album.

    The hook is hardly there and the beat might as well be Niggas In Paris.

    What is going through this woman’s head? Her duet with Miguel was one of the best songs I’ve heard in my lifetime, but everything she put out since has been the pits. This is the worst one.

    Just spotted Mariah secretly filming a video for this song in a club with a blue emerald green dress with a glass champagne and surrounded by a bunch of rappers.

  25. Guido Janssenb

    The song has to grow on me. Similar to Obsessed, not a hit in my opinion. I wish Mariah would work with people like Babyface, RKelly and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis again, to give us some quality R&B music!!

    This right here is a fucking hit! This is the song she’s needed. I also love the rap verse on this type of song.

    It reminds me of it’s like that and previous songs that are similar. Why is everyone surprised ODB on fantasy remix, snoop dog on several predecessors, jermaine dupri, diddy, shall I go on. It’s a hit get with it or get lost.

    She wants us to treat her new album like a work of art. This is just another buzz single to let us know the queen is here to stay. Queen Mariah is Back !

    After a string of ‘buzz’ singles ‘Art Of Letting Go’ and ‘You’re Mine (Eternal)’ Mariah Carey finally is back with the hot hop hip track ‘Thirtsty’. Produced by Hit-Boy with his famous beat, this is the right buzz and track for the longly delayed album. It only needs a hot music video and Mimi is on the right track.

    [Reply]

  43. Adrian

    This is the uptempo I was expecting when I heard the title THIRSTY! After seeing songs like “Migrate”, “Standing O” & “More Than Just Friends” not get the single treatment it’s a breath of fresh air to see UrbanRiah out slaying the girls with this new cut. It’s an absolute banger! & for those saying it sounds like N*ggas In Paris..Mariah has been recording this album for 3 yrs and previously worked with Hit Boy on this song so it’s not that much of a coincidence if the dame producer made this beat around 2012 for Jay Z also. Happens all the time. It’s called having a signature sound

    [Reply]

  44. Mao_the_cat

    Yes, beat very similar to Nikkkkaz in paris

    [Reply]

  45. B

    It’s what I expected! The title is Thirsty what was people expecting!! It sounds like a Hit Boy beat because it is!!! I loved Almost Home,#Beautiful, and You’re Mine(Eternal)! Thirsty is catchy. I like the beat and the lyrics are clever. It’s a cute, fun summery song. It’s perfect for summer. It’s got a beat you can bounce to!

    @Number1fan,

    Seriously! Or even a ballad version. There several stripped down fan made versions that sounded amazing. Even the remixes would have been an amazing bonus track
