Mariah Carey Debuts ‘Triumphant’ Clip (VIDEO)
The superstar diva – and newest American Idol judge — just unveiled the brand-new boxing-themed video for her latest single, “Triumphant,” featuring Rick Ross and Meek Mill.
The clip shows a shirtless Mill doing his very best “Rocky” impression – he’s in the ring and ready to compete in a match — as Ross sits in the audience and watches.
And what part does Ms. Carey play?
Several, with each requiring less and less clothing, of course.
Carey first accompanies Ross to the fight, sitting besides him in a low-cut gold minidress – but then also serves as a super-sexy ring card girl, announcing each round in another gold ensemble, this one being two-piece and even tinier.
Finally, she enters the ring in a third slinky ensemble to belt out the song’s anthemic ending.
In other Mariah news, the singer/actress was spotted Monday on the New Orleans set of Lee Daniels’ new film, The Butler.
Wearing a brown maxi dress with a purple head wrap, she was reportedly filming the movie’s opening scene, which she shares with Vanessa Redgrave.
Carey previously worked with Daniels on his award-winning film, Precious. Her role in the film — as dowdy social worker Mrs. Weiss — won her the Breakthrough Actress award at the 2010 Palm Springs International Film Festival.
“Triumphant,” meanwhile, is the first single from Carey’s as-yet-untitled new album, due out in March 2013. Aside from Ross and Meek Mill, the “Honey” singer has been collaborating with the likes of Q-Tip, Rodney Jerkins and DJ Clue.
