It does seem that Mariah Carey is working hard to rejuvenate the commercial success of her music. The latest effort is a collaboration with red hot R&B singer, songwriter and producer Miguel. The song is called "#Beautiful" and will be released Monday morning, May 6, 2013. The cover art, shown at right, was revealed today. Thus far it seems that her current stint as judge on American Idol has not produced a commercial bounce for Mariah Carey. Despite the movie's success, her song "Almost Home" from Oz: The Great and Powerful failed to reach the Billboard Hot 100. It has now been almost four years since Mariah Carey's last top 40 pop hit "Obsessed." She has released a very brief preview of "#Beautiful" which amounts to tousled hair, laughter, and a tiny bit of music. Check out the preview below.
