Well, Mariah Carey
‘s upcoming hundredth studio album The Art Of Letting Go
has been plagued by delays
and underperforming singles (sorry, “Triumphant”), but there’s no arguing that “#Beautiful”
was great — and she looks quite #beautiful indeed on the cover artwork for the upcoming title track
, which she’s releasing as the next single from the LP. Wearing a swimsuit thing on a beach against a golden sunset, sporting tousled waves, her body is emancipated — just like her spirit. (!!!)
It’s also an upgrade from the dismally sloppy “#Beautiful” artwork — and a good sign of things to come. Seriously, it’s nothing short of remarkable that the immaculately preserved songstress manages to look this good. Even if this album fails to launch, we’ll always have the loveliness of her promotional photos.
The Darkchild-produced single drops November 11.
