I just heard the song and it's much better in full than what I expected. It's a hot song. If it was released by a different artist most of y'all would've liked it. Anyways, it's not for any album and it's a stand alone single. It's much better than all the other singles she's released since #Beautiful. Can't wait to hear the lead single off her next album.

It's ok, it gets a little flat towards the end but I still like the song. Can't stand the cover though, hate it when people have bad screencaps for their covers.

This is a cute lil ratchet bop but it won't do much unfortunately. I threw out any expectations after MIAM.

This isn't as bad as I feared it would be. I actually like it.

I do not know, I thing it has not been announced, I am too lazy to check. UKMix will have the video a few seconds after it is released.

I saw the preview. Lord, Mariah behaves like the MADTV version of herself.

I know plenty of people. Most of them hate Mariah. And the 3-4 people that came up to me about this song liked it. The response on social media is almost all positive. Most of the negative comments come from the video preview itself. It's literally this site that stays negative when it comes to her.

After an initial listen it's ok...I like the "I was buggin'" part. I like that the vocal is quite simple.

It reminds me a lot of a slower Shake It Off...and making songs that sound the same 12 years later is not good. Also the lyrics remind me more of Nick Cannon than James Packer. It would be been more interesting if there were some honest lyrics about that situation rather than the cliched "man done me wrong" narrative.

Oh well hopefully it's a grower.

I like it on the first listen. It's miles better than 'Infinity' (worst song she's ever done, IMO). I like the use of the sample.
Not sure this will be a (moderate) hit for her though.

The song just goes absolutely nowhere for me, I think I even liked Infinity better than this. If this is what she's releasing nowadays I wont be tuning in :(

Can't stop playing it.
The sampling's perfect, plus it ain't a WBT clone for once, THANK GOD.
Certified bop.

The whole midlife crisis for Mariah Carey is in full swing now so this image and her direction is pretty much a given. As for the song, there's nothing catchy about it, it's still the same talk-singing on a hard bass beat kind of songs she's been doing since 2005, and the whole rapper opening the song to introduce her is so twenty years ago.

Whoever thought that using the baiting song title would click and generate some memes or go viral should re-assess that this is not going to be her next "Obsessed", it's just so stale and dull. If for anything, this is probably the last time people would still want to check her out after that New Year's fiasco, Mariah should have capitalized on releasing something like "You Don't Know What to Do" or "#Beautiful" or something that's melodic enough to at least make her look like she's still someone to be taken seriously.

Ranking her lead singles and buzz singles this decade, this is by far, her worst.
1. "#Beautiful" (featuring Miguel)
2. "Infinity"
3. "Triumphant (Get 'Em)" (featuring Meek Mill & Rick Ross)
4. "I Don't" (featuring YG)
