ABOUT THE SONG
Q: With your album, no comparison, but with music bouncing in strip clubs and gentlemen’s clubs so big, did you ever make records like Beyoncé’s Drunk In Love or Rihanna’s Pour It Up, that type of bounce? Have you made records like that and would you ever go to a strip club? …So, Mariah, would you make a bounce record like that and have you ever to a gentleman’s club?
MC: I have a song called Thirsty - it’s a record we did with Hitboy. Chauncey! Can we get Chauncey on the line? Did you guys have Hitboy up here yet? - Power 105.5 The Breakfast Club Interview with Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy - February 12, 2014
In a crush of fans and former campers, Mariah and I did have a chance to talk. I told her I was impressed with all the detail in her new album. She told me: “That’s why it took so long. Now you can see.” I told her I particularly liked the track “Thirsty.” She said: “I wrote that so long ago. I don’t know what Nick [husband Nick Cannon] was talking about the other day. That song is not about him.” - Showbiz411 Roger Friedman “Mariah Carey Gets Toasted by Her Fresh Air Camp Graduates on 20th Anniversary” May 30, 2014
Q: So, you did a track with Mariah Carey here, I know you were very excited. Just talk about, um, I guess how it felt to do a track with Mariah.
Rich Homie Quan: First and foremost you gotta shout out Jermaine Dupri, ‘cause that’s the one who set it up. Once we did the track I was very excited, not a lot of people get to do a song with Mariah Carey. She is one of the best, so yeah, I’m very excited about that. - Mechanical Dummy Interview with Rich Homie Quan, March 6, 2015
