Mariah Carey and Miguel Release #Beautiful

May 7, 2013

To release a song right as the summer season is beginning is a risky move. Songs that are part of the soundtrack to summer are expected to be GRADE A, and anything less than that should be released earlier in the spring or once fall/winter hit. Mariah Carey and Miguel have just released a song that could possibly be one of the biggest summer hits! The duo teamed up for #Beautiful, joining and Twitter in the hashtag-obsessed phase.  Although the beginning of May is early to be declaring a song worthy of the “summer hit” title, I have to agree with the declaration. #Beautiful is definitely going to be a song you’re singing along to all summer long!

Miguel starts the track with “Hop on the back of my bike, let a cool wind run through your hair,” and adds other verses, such as, “Ride on through the middle of the night, let the moonlight kiss your skin.” He’s ready to ride off into the moonlight on a hot summer night with the girl of his dreams. The hook is extremely catchy, with the lyrics, “You’re beautiful, Good Lord, you’re f***ing beautiful, And I can’t pretend that, that doesn’t mean a thing to me.” Mariah joins in on the song, with the verse, “Oh, how you thrill me, always in control, how you do it, I don’t know, but I don’t care, take me anywhere,” proving that she’s completely ready to join Miguel on that hot summer night, on the back of his bike.

#Beautiful is the first round of new music that we’re getting from Mariah Carey since her feature on the Oz the Great and Powerful soundtrack. Miguel is the one responsible for “Kaleidoscope Dream,” which was one of 2012’s best albums. Miguel is set to hit the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 19th at 8:00pm EST on ABC, so don’t miss that! Listen to #Beautiful below and let us know if you agree with the “summer hit” declaration! Send us a tweet at @weknowthedj and let us know your thoughts on #Beautiful
