Mariah Carey’s new era is finally here!
The singer released the first taste of what we can expect on her new album earlier today and it’s amazing, dahhhlings!
“GFTO” is a soft and breathy slow jam disguised as a love song (thanks to frequent Drake producer, Nineteen85), but the lyrics are anything but. On the track, Mariah urges a SO to “go stay at your friends house… or something.” Oh, she gets even feistier! “How about you get the f–k out? / How about you take your things and be on your merry way?,” she sings. “Fly off with a wink, bye bye, baby / How about you scusea me baby let me call your valet.”
The singer also opened about about her new music. “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn’t so serious,” Mariah said in a statement. “I’ve had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.”
Mimi also released a video for the track. In it, Mariah lounges around a house that is certainly not one of her many mansions in lingerie.
“GTFO” is Mariah’s first official release off her imprint label, Butterfly MC Records. The music video for the track drops on Friday (see a preview below). Her first official single off of her upcoming album is titled “With You” and drops Oct. 5th.
