Miguel Reflects on Working With Mariah Carey, Whom He “Grew up Having a Crush on”

When life comes full circle.

August’s You Oughta Know artist Miguel teamed up with Mariah Carey back in 2013 for “#Beautiful,” the lead single off of Mimi’s Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse album. “#Beautiful” was a hit, and went on to gain Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America. The song was also a major win for Miguel, who grew up listening to and crushing on Mariah.

“I grew up having a crush on this woman,” Miguel says of Mimi. “It was crazy to finally get in the studio and learn so much about her and her creative process. I didn’t realize that she wrote so many of her own records.”

Imagine having a crush on Miguel and then one day shooting a sexy music video with him. This is me right now:
