After barely making a dent on the charts with her Trey Songz-assisted single “You’re Mine (Eternal),” Mariah Carey decides to turn things up a notch with the premiere of “Thirsty” featuring Rich Homie Quan. The track will serve as the third official single off her upcoming fourteenth studio album Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse, which is scheduled for release on May 27 via Island Records. Produced by Hit-Boy, “Thirsty” is an urban-leaning pop number driven by a trap-light beat and Mariah‘s sassy hook: “You tryna be a boss now. Thinkin’ you a G now. Boy, you just looking thirsty,” sings Mimi. While this certainly is the most radio-friendly serving from the album yet, “Thirsty” is missing an immediate punch Mariah could really use right now. But for all you thirsty lambs out there, this should be more than enough to quench your thirst. What do you guys think?
