R&B diva Mariah Carey never ceases to amaze fans. This time getting back to the basics with fiery lyrics empowering women to kick their no-good-men to the curb with her new single GTFO.
Released this past week, the GTFO video boasts Mariah’s voluptuous figure in a sexy lingerie set and red fur coat ensemble. This is the multi-platinum, multi-Grammy winning superstar’s first glimpse of her 15th studio album coming off of a five-year hiatus. The catchy track was produced by Nineteen85 who has credits with the likes of Drake and Jordan Manswell aka Daniel Cesar.
In a statement, Carey described her jocular mood while creating the album stating, “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” she said. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.” Outside of her infamous ballads, some of Mariah’s most memorable upbeat hits feature content that reflects her influence over the opposite sex. We all recall the shocking lyrical fire she spit towards Rap God Eminem on 2009 single “Obsessed.” Here are a few lines off GTFO to wet your ears:
Don’t tell me these lies when you’re bluffing
How ’bout you get the f*ck out?
Go stay at your friend’s house or something
Don’t mean to be rude, but take your shit and leave
Check out the dope visuals below.
