For the past week, with the exception of myself, the blogs and internet fans have been buzzing about Mariah Carey's return to music. Announcements were made on American Idol, the title of the song "#Beautiful" along with the cheap and tacky cover above was released.
The single premiere date was announced, and now we have a video premiere which will air on idol this week. It all features Miguel, he;s behind the vocals, writing and production. Mariah will perform this live on American Idol on May 16th and on the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series on May 24th. The song is sitting at #33 on the iTunes chart.
The diva also called into Ryan Seacrest radio show this morning to promote the new song and dish on her album details. The project will be released in the first half of the Summer and feature productions from The-Dream, Jermaine Dupri, Hit Boy, Mike Will and more. Check it all out below.
Hmmmmmm......The song has Miguel written all over it. With that being said, it's a great song. It's fresh, it's nifty and new. Is it comeback material? No in my book. But it is a good song. It sounds just like something that could have been featured on his "Kaleidoscope Dream" album.
It's a big BIG step up from her previously released "Triumphant" that featured Rick Ross and Meek Mill which was a HUGE FAIL. But this one has some potential. Top 10 potential? Not at all, but it has some Hot 100 potential.
As far as the interview, it's good to know that the album is coming very soon. But I'm sure that will change once once this single fails to impact the way they would want it to. A part of me feel that the track will be deemed a buzz single, just like Triumphant and we will be waiting a few more months. But that's just my opinion. What do you think about the track?
