Listen after the jump.
MTV News also chatted with the song’s co-writer and co-producer, Grammy winner Bryan-Michael Cox, who explained why the MMG rappers were a perfect fit for the new single. “This song is kind of inspirational. It’s close to her heart, and I think her fans are going to really, really be emotionally attached to this song,” Cox tells MTV News. “I expect that this record’s going to be a huge record. I expect that this is going to be one of her bigger albums.”
“I think that Rick Ross is resilient, and Meek Mill [is] a new hot rapper, who’s really hot, one of my favorite new hip hop artists,” Cox added. “Rick Ross, who’s always been one of my favorites, he’s resilient. I think that, through the years, people try to count him out, and he always comes back, comes back harder, comes back with bigger and better records. So I think that the theme of ’Triumphant,’ I think that he fits the theme of that whole concept the best, really, because through it all, Rick Ross always comes out on top.”
