Mariah Carey and Miguel's New Song '#Beautiful' Isn't the Sex Explosion We Expected

By Kelsea Stahler, Hollywood Staff

For a week now, Mariah Carey and her most recent collaborator (and purveyor of some of the most baby-making music in the industry right now) Miguel have been tantalizing fans with snippets of their new song ''#Beautiful,'' which is undoubtedly a result of Carey's worst American Idol judging habit. (The number of times the singer has uttered ''hashtag-pow'' or ''hash-tag'' amazing is reaching Randy Jackson-levels of repetitiveness). Now, her social-media-friendly song is officially live on her website and as nice as it is, it's lacking the sheer sexual magnetism we expected from a collaboration between Mimi and the impossibly sexy Miguel.

While it's a little more on the summer fun side of pop music, the song does clearly pull from Miguel's signature gyration-instigating rhythms and Carey's signature runs. Still, it's just a little more easy-going that what we've come to expect from a pairing of this magnitude. Perhaps when we finally get a music video to pair with the music, the full picture of sexual desire will come together. Or, we'll chill out and realize this might actually make a great, simple summer jam and move on with our sunny lives.
