ABOUT THE SONG

  • “I wanted to give my fans and everyone a first listen that wasn't so serious," says Mariah. "I've had so much fun making this album, and I wanted the first moment to reflect that light-hearted spirit.” - PR Newswire “Legendary Global Icon Mariah Carey Returns With New Music” September 13, 2018

  • Carey’s gift for pithy, punchy phrases also led to “GTFO,” another gleaming song about banishing a callous ex. “I just walked in and tried to see where I could fit into her process,” recalls [Bibi] Bourelly, one of the track’s co-writers. “She had her wine there, her notebook there. Usually I write on the mic, just freestyling; with her I was writing my words down, pen and paper. Then we went back and forth on two mics. That was iconic. When she sang, ‘how bout you get the fuck out,’ it was crazy to hear Mariah so fabulous but so ratchet at the same time.”

  • Billboard: Speaking of the [R&B], I have to ask about Nineteen85's production on Mariah Carey's "GTFO."

    Nineteen85: We’ve spoken [about collaborating] before but it just never happened. Then her A&R reached out to me and said, “If you’re free this weekend we’d love to have you out.” And for Mariah, of course I’m free! Working with her is just amazing. She’s so chill and down to earth and such a good writer. She actually knows way more about production than most artists, so that whole process was easy easier than I expected it to be. I think the reaction to the track was really cool. She hadn’t done anything in a while, so a lot of people were like “Oh, Mariah’s back!”
