Following American Idol, the video goes up on VEVO/YouTube and all video channels – BET’s 106th & Park (“New Joint“), MTV, VH1 and FUSE.

As Mariah recently told Billboard, her new album “has more raw ballads than people might expect.” The new album is the follow-up to her worldwide multi-million-selling Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel (released September 2009). Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date. She has a total of 223 #1 records across all Billboard singles, albums, sales, and airplay charts, dating back to her “Vision Of Love” debut, including 18 Billboard #1 Hot 100 singles (17 self-penned). With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/ producer, she has been recognized with five GRAMMY® Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard’s Artist of the Decade Award, the World Music Award for World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium, and BMI’s Icon Award for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few.

Song of Summer 2013: This is a game-changer: Not only is Miguel and Mariah Carey’s duet very good – in both a vintage Mariah and a legitimately summery sort of way — but it has an actual hashtag in the title,” says New York Magazine.

#Beautifulfeaturing Miguel is now available to download on iTunes.
