Mariah Carey & Miguel Make ‘#Beautiful’ Music Together


Today is the day that the Lord hath made and that Lambs worldwide have been waiting for with the release of Mariah Carey's brand new single with Miguel, "#Beautiful." The track was teased a few weeks ago with a barely there snippet that did the final product no justice whatsoever upon hearing it now. "#Beautiful" opens with a guitar riff and a few tambourine shakes before Mimi and Miguel do a little harmonizing, singing "Uh, uh, you're beautiful." Surprisingly, the first verse goes to Miguel who invites her to hop on the back of his bike and let the wind whip through her hair while they ride. He may have taken the lead, but the second half of the song belongs to Mariah, whose voice shines like patent leather shoes on Easter Sunday when we finally get to hear it in full. Mimi sounds pretty awesome, flexing her vocal range as easily as she breathes. I love Mariah's devil-may-care laugh track that's woven into the song at various intervals, and their voices blend so well together. This Mimiguel duet is quite fetching and catchy to boot. And I'm already picturing a 1950's style, James Dean Rebel Without a Cause music video with lots of leather, bikers and babes to match the song's throwback nature. With the incredible response that "#Beautiful" is receiving and already becoming a worldwide trending topic (now that hashtag in the title makes perfect sense), I suspect that Mariah may just have another number one single on her hands. Take that, Nicki Minaj.
