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

Mariah Carey Brings ‘The Elusive Chanteuse’ to ‘Letterman’

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey returned to “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Wednesday, her first appearance in almost five years. The pop superstar discussed her new album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse, acting in Lee Daniels’ movies, and her twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

“She way out-divas me,” said Mariah of her three-year-old daughter.

She also revealed that she is down to the wire on her album, due May 27. “I keep changing the date and it’s only because I want people to experience this album as a body of work,” said Mimi. “I keep saying that and yet everybody around me is saying, ‘So what’s the single?’”

With her iPhone in hand, she tried to make Dave his own Mariah album title using TIME’s interactive tool, but she lost the page.

Plus, she showed off the self-portrait that inspired the title for her new album, and had a message for the critics: “If we are going to critique the Me. I Am Mariah, you are technically critiquing a three-year-old, so stop it.”

Watch Mariah in all her diva glory below.
