Grading Mariah Carey’s Comeback Singles

by (@sllambe)

“#Beautiful” (2013)

An early contender for song of the summer, “#Beautiful” was warmly received by fans. It was a solid, radio-friendly jam that worked on several levels.¬†Miguel helped Carey sound current while the song channeled a neo soul sound. It’s a shame the single was never backed by an album because it would have been great to know what else Carey was working on at that time.

Grade: A-
