How does Mariah Carey do "Triumphant" in the new video for the soon to be labelled "buzz-track" of the same name? Well, the same way she does everything else: posing, pouting and trying as hard as she can to be sexy.
Just like the song itself [review here], Mariah Carey isn't even the main attraction of the video- that privilege goes to the boxers and the boxing match itself. Instead, she's relegated to the babe holding the numbered cards between bouts. Not that she seems to have a problem with it; clearly enjoying parading herself and her new slimline figure for the crowd. Or maybe I've interpreted it all wrong and this is really a visual representation of Mariah Carey's own triumph with her weight? (Why does that sound so bitchy when I read it back?)
The Nick Cannon directed promo, itself, is actually an improvement on his previous pairings with his wife- see I Stay In Love. He makes good use of the song's theme, uses a nice golden colour palette that really compliments Mariah, and manages to create and capture some great shots. However, his wife- though looking great- fails to sell the meaning of the song, herself, and that was what was really needed with this promo.
