Remix: Mariah Carey – ‘Beautiful (Ft Miguel & A$AP Rocky)’

Published: Wednesday 26th Jun 2013 by David

New music alert!

Minutes ago, Pop icon Mariah Carey surprised the world with a brand spanking new remix to her hit song ‘Beautiful’, featuring ‘Fashion Killa’ A$AP Rocky.

Is it any good?

You decide after the jump!

Love it!

Flaunting A$AP’s versatility as a Rapper and only adding to Mariah‘s bid to be more contemporary, this remix is an undeniable 10!

However, with the vocal wonder back in the studio to finish work on its supporting album, here’s hoping its follow up singles see Mimi take to the stage sans a supporting act…as it’s been too long since we’ve scored a cut from the star that didn’t feature somebody else on it.

Either way, the remix is great and has us anticipating Rocky’s forthcoming album even more than we already were!

    Hmmm,those lips. Beautiful. He’s beautiful. This closeup not helping me.

  3. Hi5 June 26, 2013

    ASSSSAAAAPPP! He makes this song more epic.Good choice for remix MiMi and Miguel of course.

  4. JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013

    Damn Mariah loves making music!

    • Adrian June 28, 2013

      I know! People kill me! She’s lazy if she releases too many single-fueled albums back to back, but when she takes her time on this album and is smart with marketing for the new album now she’s doing too much. I need everyone to return to their jobs at Billboard because we obviously have professional music critics in the building! They will deal. I’m through with it.

      I love A$AP! He is too damn fine. & I am excited for the next remixes!

  5. MC June 26, 2013

    “Mariah releases first of 5 remixes for #Beautiful ft. Miguel! #Beautiful Remix ft. A$AP Rocky premiers TODAY at 4:00pm EST at www. youtube. com/ mariahcarey! Forthcoming remixes with resung vocals from Mariah include a Spanglish version (“Hermosa”), a hot Hip-Hop collaboration and dance remixes!”

    This was a basic, copy and paste mess.

    • JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013

      Are you f****** serious? Resung versions including a Spanglish one? I can´t believe it!

      • MC June 26, 2013

        From her Facebook!!

        I’m excited for it tbh!

        We already know the Hip-Hop one will feature Young Jeezy produced by Mike WiLL Made It.

        Young Jeezy did Side Effects on E=MC^2

      • JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013

        Yeah I knew about the hip-hop one, but not the others.

      • Adrian June 28, 2013

        Come on now! Mariah tweeted about it days ago! You need to follow her! lol. She posted a banner spilling all the good tea on the remixes!

        & follow her on IG too!

  6. Meena June 26, 2013

    When I heard asap was on the remix I thought it would be s*** but I actually like it

  7. DOSSOME June 26, 2013

    it’s OK…I’m more excited for the Spanglish remix though

  8. LOVEBIRD June 26, 2013

    Mariah is definitely going to flop with this album

    • RICHANDBLACK11 June 26, 2013

      Why are you always so damn negative?

    • Devon June 26, 2013

      *Rolls eyes* …and this is coming from a Michelle Fan..

    • Eric June 26, 2013

      Mariah is going to flop and yet you have a pic of Michelle Williams there?

    • Adrian June 28, 2013

      LMAO! Lovebird you are a mess. You stan for Leona Lewis and Michelle Williams and you are trying to come for Mariah.

      I just can’t…

      *gapsing for air and laughing hysterically*

  9. LOVEBIRD June 26, 2013

    Mariah is so tacky for this.

  10. JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013

    I´m so late. My felow Mariah fans are way more informed than me. Can´t believe there is a Spanglish remix on the way!
    About this one: yeah it´s the same.

    • DOSSOME June 26, 2013

      It’s clever approach…the copy paste remix will help the song chart further while the completely resung versions are for her blessed lambs 🙂

  11. RICHANDBLACK11 June 26, 2013

    I like this one better……

    • DOSSOME June 26, 2013

      Gurl,why do you do that to me with the whole nostalgia???…i kinda think Mariah released this remix as my 25th bday gift,lol…i’m awaiting HERMOSA

      • MC June 26, 2013

        I know, Daydream is that album ya know? It makes me feel like I’m floating on air.

        Maybe. I hope you’re still trying for that other site, we need members like you now more than ever.

      • DOSSOME June 26, 2013

        @MC I might go back to DAYDREAM in July since i spent my entire June on Glitter & Memoirs…i literally can’t get enough of Lead The Way…..& i’m not giving up trying out for that site however they frustrate me.

      • MC June 26, 2013

        I’ve been exhausting Daydream and Close My Eyes lol. I know, Lead the Way is so f****** perfect. I just rediscovered Bringin’ on The Heartbreak this past couple of weeks and cannot get over how mellow and awesome it really is.

        Standing O, Ribbon, Angels Cry >>>>>>>>>>>


        Good, don’t give up.

  12. LOVEBIRD June 26, 2013

    Ariana Grande is way better TBH.

    • MC June 26, 2013


      Finally someone spilling the true TEA.

      AND Ariana did the Spanish version first too. Copycatriah, F******, Oldriah, Flopriah could never.

      • DOSSOME June 26, 2013

        LOL,IKR *Plays Triumphlop/Flopuphant*

      • JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013


      • Adrian June 28, 2013

        Ariana was 6 months old when Mariah first sang in Spanish. You tried it though.

        Hero (Spanish Version) 1993

        Open Arms (Spanish Version) 1996

        My All (Spanish Version) 1998

        O.O.C. (Spanish + French) 2008

        #Beautiful/Hermosa 2013

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 26, 2013

      You are right hun. Ariana is far better than Michelle.

    • Adrian June 28, 2013

      Yup! Ariana >>>>> Michelle +Leona

  13. HONEYCHILDPLEASE June 26, 2013

    New hair is delivered from the hair gods and is LayedT. Nicki Minaj inspired. I’m back b****.

    • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 26, 2013


  14. HONEYCHILDPLEASE June 26, 2013

    Where is my gravatar?

  15. HONEYCHILDPLEASE June 26, 2013

    It’s going to make its arrival soon.

  16. truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 26, 2013

    i would do ASAP til he passed out. u just KNOW he a bottom

  17. Gary C June 26, 2013

    I’m sure this can’t be the final edit of this version. The rapper is too far forward in the mix with Mariah & Miguel playing (almost) backup. The rap adlibs jar a bit, though I can see what they were going for. Pretty standard – dial a rapper and drop them in edition. I’m not really here for it, shame as I love the added rap verses normally. I’m looking forward to the MC do-over with new vocals though. Mariah is queen of the vocal remix!

  19. Todd June 26, 2013

    Mimi,i love u, but i’m not diggin this remix! Theres tons of covers+rap verses on dat YouTube that sound way more…inspired. I still love u,i aint mad , and cant wait till the Hiphop rmx!!!!!

  20. MC June 26, 2013

    On a more positive and inspired note (unlike this remix),# Beautiful sold 93,377 copies this week and a total of 673,813!

    Platinum is definitely in the view, which is nice.

    I’m willing to forgive this “remix” for the Spanish and Hip-Hop versions.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 26, 2013

      TBH, it could have already been platinum if she had been promoting it more.

      • DOSSOME June 26, 2013

        I agree,it’s selling even more consistently than TMB

    • JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2013

      It´s selling really well. It keeps on selling the same amount of copies every week.

  21. SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 26, 2013

    I LOVE IT!!

    Umm, If that’s the real Lovebird, Let’s not go there hun, because Michele Williams can’t even outsell Ciara.

    • MC June 26, 2013

      I really wish you’d remove that avie of yours. Don’t forget people attack Mariah for her weight as well and its too mean.

      I never understood the appeal of having an avie of someone you don’t like.

      Please lambchop, for me ♥

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 26, 2013

        Lmao. okay. May I at least keep the username?

      • MC June 26, 2013

        I didn’t even notice it lol

        Please change that as well to something #Beautiful.

        Stay peaceful while I’m gone lambchop, please.

      • truth(icki’s B**** ASS STANS can EAT ME honey!! Yall b**** is a STANK P**** FLOP chile! (puckers lips like Drake)) June 26, 2013

        Honey keep that avi!! Love it!!

      • Adrian June 28, 2013

        You are so sweet! That was so heartfelt ♥

  22. TaylorSwift1Stan June 26, 2013

    She’s gonna flop even worse. I feel bad for her does remix won’t get you a top 10 single ask beyonce babe 🙂

  23. JER June 26, 2013

    This remix sucks. Ill wait for the real remix

  24. TaylorSwift1Stan June 26, 2013

    I love @lovebird for dragging this porky face mooriah. She’s gonna flop even harder than kelly rowland!!! B**** is nowhere to be found in forbes! No top 10 single. This era is dead. Rihanna is coming for those 18 1#s don’t get too comfortable piggy carey

    • Adrian June 28, 2013

      LOL you are killing me. Mariah has appeared on Forbes plenty times. I normally don’t even both with your messy behind but I can’t ignore this kind of nonsense.

      Mariah Carey Net Worth :$500 Million

      Taylor Swift Net Worth: $80 Million

      worth 5 x more than crocodile tears. The lessors have really grown brave this year. Lana and Taylor stans, huh?

  25. Suicide Blonde June 26, 2013

    I don’t care, I LOVE IT!!!

  26. SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 26, 2013

    This Taylor Swift fan is obsessed with Mariah though. lol

    • DOSSOME June 26, 2013

      LOL,It’s definitely a Barb or a fighter…There’s a @MARK111 who’s just as pressed

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (JLo? WHO IS THAT?) June 26, 2013

        LOL. I think you’re right. + Why would a Taylor Swift fan be on TGJ when Sam doesn’t even report on Taylor? I don’t even pay attention to @MARK111 anymore.

  27. Mark111 June 26, 2013

    Can someone please send me some videos of Mariah “slaying” a song. The only thing she killed is her own voice. Let @Doosome and @Slayriah do the honors. I recall asking this months ago and still no video. I guess the press was right in 1991, she’s just a studio vocalist. #sorry (Oh and make sure it’s LIVE, non of that pre reorded mess.)

  28. Beyond Amazing June 26, 2013

    Singing, I don’t care take me anywhere. #Beautiful. Anyways I don’t think I want to even play it see what it sounds like. Asap sucks as a rapper to me. I wish she could have gotten Kendrick or J.Cole. Now that would have been dope.

  29. Prince vanity June 26, 2013

    I love this remix ,it could be 6 minutes longer

  30. beyhive muscle June 26, 2013

    A$AP kinda ruined the whole thing…
    *plays #Beautiful the original*

  31. Goodkushnkoochie June 27, 2013

    I never hear beautiful on the radio

    • Adrian June 28, 2013

      Boo it gets heavy airplay. Z100 NY, Kiis LA, and all local stations in South Texas play it where I’m at. I don’t hear it on XM 47 The Heat that much which is weird since it’s been in the Top 5 R&B for a month.

  32. Peace June 27, 2013


    A$AP definitely added some needed swag and attitude to bland original!

    When will this be on Itunes? can’t wait to purchase it!

  34. Harpo Who Dis B****? June 27, 2013

    F*** IS MIMI MESSIN WITH THESE F*** N***** FOR?!! I Have Owned A$AP Rocky’s Family for Generations and Never has a S**** Given Me More B******* Than Him!!! I Used to Sell His Mother All Over The Town TO Make Silk Cotton Quilts To Bargain Around the Markets!! NOW THIS COLORED BOY IS TRYNNA CROSS ME!!! AAAWWW HEEEEEEEEELLLL NO!!!

  35. Adrian June 28, 2013

    I can’t wait for the other remixes! I really wished A$AP would have had longer verses in here, preferably something right before the 2nd verse. Loved his opening verse except for the sh*t don’t stink thing. I felt they should have issued a clean version but it doesn’t matter because I know the Hip-Hop remix is the one that will be catered towards radio along with the dance remixes.

    Let’s go!
