“GTFO” (shorthand for “Get the F*ck Out”) is Carey’s second single with Epic Records following last year’s “I Don’t” featuring YG. For her latest track, she teams up with a very unexpected collaborator, Robinson.
“GTFO” samples Robinson’s “Goodbye to a World” from his 2014 album Worlds. That bit of emotional electronica mixed with trap-lite beats backs Carey’s sassy takedown of an ex. “You took my love for granted / You left me lost and disenchanted,” she sings. Mariah doesn’t mince her words when demanding, “How ‘bout you get the f*ck out?” The queen of kiss-off songs comes through with something cathartic, ethereal and empowering.
“GTFO” is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Carey will release her follow-up single “With You” next month.
