Mariah Carey ft. Miguel – Beautiful

Mariah Carey, Miguel, Beautiful

 

This week Mariah released her latest single with Miguel, “Beautiful,” which is pretty catchy, but also pretty short (so you can fit it into your busy day). It has all the touches of a standard Mariah Carey song: occasional creepy giggling, vocals so high-pitched only a dog can hear some of them, and wanton use of the word “fuck” – making the song more vulgar than necessary.

 

I hate that the title of this song is hashtagged… If someone goes to the Grand Canyon and tweets that it’s #beautiful, no, Mariah, that does not mean your song is trending. You can’t own the word “beautiful,”

 

…maybe Jennifer Aniston can.

The chorus of “Power Trip,” goes: Got me up all night, all I’m singing is love songs.

 

…so what do you think he’s singing? “Achy Breaky Heart,” or “Kiss From a Rose”?

I’m tired of Swizz Beatz. I understand the repetitive catch-phrase over drum-heavy beats is his “thing” his “gimmick,” his “schtick”. Whatever… I’d really like it if he tried something new, and I believe he is talented enough to do it. Until then, enjoy “Summer on Smash,” which is the epitome of Swizz Beatz music…
