LISTEN: Mariah Carey & Miguel Create Something “#Beautiful”

Mariah Carey and Miguel lift their voices in praise with “#Beautiful,” Mariah’s enchanting new single that is unlike any track you’ve ever heard from the queen of the Lambs.

For this pairing, the duo harmonize over a stripped-down, insistent guitar riff and drum-machine beats. Miguel eases into the first verse and chorus over sparse instrumentation, while Mariah comes in for the second and the track beings to build.

Mariah pushes the limits with her trademark vocal accents that comes to a climax on the final chorus, where she and Miguel layer their vocals atop one another’s to create an effect that is at once delicate and powerful.

The track debuted early on Monday (May 6), at 8AM EST, with an announcement from Miguel’s twitter account.

While Mariah’s Twitter feed reflected an excited countdown to the track’s premiere, Miguel introduced himself to Carey’s fans, called Lambs.
