Single Review: Mariah Carey featuring Rich Homie Quan, “Thirsty ” and Remix Premiere

THIRSTYSlant

The latest single to be let go from Mariah Carey’s upcoming album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, the hip-hop banger “Thirsty” is a corrective of sorts to 2011’s similarly urban-leaning “Triumphant (Get ‘Em).” Unlike that guest-littered track, though, the Hit-Boy-helmed “Thirsty” couldn’t be mistaken for anything other than a Mimi joint, with the singer taking center stage as she takes aim at a starfucker (Atlanta rapper Rich Homie Quan is a veritable hype man). It’s probably the closest thing we’ll get to an uptempo single from Mariah these days (for that we’ll have to look to the club remixes), and the chorus, though in line with much of passes for pop music today, is a far cry from the infectious hooks of “Fantasy” or “Emotions,” consisting solely of “Uh, you’re thirs-tay” repeated over and over. The rest, however, is a reminder of the pop gold Mimi can mine when she’s on top of her game. Listen to the song.
