Mariah Carey is back and has a new album coming out at the end of the year. She recently released a brand-new song from the EP for her fans titled "GTFO."
This new album is the first for Carey since she released Me. I Am Mariah...the Elusive Chanteuse in 2014. While she released a new non-album single in 2017 called "I Don't" featuring YG, the new song is referred to as the "kickoff single" for the new album, which indicates that "I Don't" won't be on the new album.
"I Don't" peaked at 89 on the Billboard Hot 100. Mariah Carey has not had a single rank higher than 82nd on the charts since "#Beautiful" hit 15th in 2013 from Me. I Am Mariah...the Elusive Chanteuse. She hasn't had a top 10 single since 2009's "Obsessed" from the album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
"GTFO" is the first single since Mariah Carey signed a new record deal with her own personal Butterfly MC Records and Epic. There will also be a video that hits for the song on Friday.
In a statement (via Pitchfork), Carey said that "GTFO" gave her a chance to give her fans a song that was not that serious, as she said that making the new album has been fun.
