Mariah Carey Teases “Beautiful” With Miguel: Watch The Clip

Mariah Carey, the best-selling female artist of the millennium/a person who commands millions of dollars to snooze through American Idol every week, is teaming up with Miguel, the coolest cat in R&B, for some kind of new single that will probably be a thousand times better than the abysmal “Triumphant (Get ‘Em)” or the good-but-ultimately-forgettable “Almost Home.” News broke earlier this week that the two had shot a video (directed by Joseph Kahn) for the upcoming track, and now Carey’s gone and uploaded a 25-second teaser, which tells us a few things: Mariah Carey is still feelin’ herself, and a new era is beginning. (We’re not extrapolating: The text at the end reads: “The New Era Begins.”)

There isn’t much to see or hear here — just a guitar riff and Carey laughing as her lustrous mane blows around her face and Miguel checks himself out in a mirror — but it’s more than enough to get people stoked for “Beautiful,” which drops May 6.
