Mariah Carey makes it perfectly clear what her ex-lover is missing in the smoldering video for her new NSWF break-up ballad “GTFO.” Taking a cue from the slinky song’s no-reading-between-the-lines chorus appeal to her man to “get the fuck out,” Carey spends the entire clip alone in her lavish apartment, modeling a seductive series of lingerie combos while basking in Barbra Streisand-worthy soft focus lighting.
Her only companions in the clip are a bottomless glass of red wine and a strategically placed pillow, more than enough to keep her warm as she waves bye and rolls her eyes at the video’s conclusion. The sultry song dropped Thursday morning (Sept. 13), complete with a subtle beat from producer Nineteen85 (Drake).
The kiss-off to an untrustworthy lover will appear on Carey’s upcoming, as-yet-untitled 15th album, due out later this year, preceded by the first official single, “With You,” which is slated for an Oct. 5 release. “You took my love for granted/ You left me lost and disenchanted/ Bulldoze my heart as if you planned it/ My prince was so unjustly handsome,” Carey sings in the first verse over the spare, icy track.
