“Beautiful,” which features Miguel, is the new track that is set to launch Mariah Carey’s next album. Does it have the potential to be the song of the summer?
Eager to put behind the flop that was “Triumphant” behind her, Mariah has lassoed R&B hitmaker Miguel into sprinkling some of his magic on her material.
The two reportedly co-wrote the slightly rock-tinged record which finds both singers crooning about the irresistible beauty each sees in the other. Miguel even curses (although it’s censored) in the hook to emphasize his bad boyness.
But Mariah doesn’t show such edge as she still giggles like a teenager like she did on her 1997 hit “Honey.”
The only knock on the song really is that it’s a bit too brief at 3:22. As soon as you start to get into it, it’s pretty much over.
