Eeeeee! Calling all Mariah Carey Stans and purveyors of the 50K+ views on this CLASSIC supercut of Mimi’s best runs and riffs! Our Lady Mariah doth dropeth her new Rick Ross + Meek Mill-assisted single today! MC released the saucy, LEGGY single art for the track earlier this week. Mariah looks pheeeeenomenal in a warm gold, strapless dress with a flirty side cut-out and side slit up to there. Her waist-length locks are sleek, straight and a soft honey color, and she’s backdropped against a crackling amber glow. It’s no secret that Mimi loves her GOLD, so in honor of the song’s debut and this sultry cover snap, we’re taking a look back at her other golden album art outfits!

Talk about de ja vu! Looks like Mariah may have recycled a formula that worked well on the cover of The Emancipation of Mimi back in 2005. Right arm raised. Chin up. Gold dress. Stomach cut-out. Suuuuper high slit. And don’t forget a healthy dose of wind machine. Her Mimi dress is considerably more floaty, more ethereal than the one she wears for Triumphant, though. Also, it has an asymmetrical neckline, but overall these looks are strikingly similar. But hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

Time-hop to 1997, when Mariah released Butterfly. She may be working a tube top and pants here (side note: belly chain!!!), but the feel of this cover is definitely referenced in the new Triumphant cover. The warm honey tones echoed in the background AND wardrobe, the glowing skin, the sultry gaze, the (again) windswept hair – it’s a little more subtle than the winks at Mimi, but the notes of Butterfly in the new album art are 100% present and felt.
