As a thank you to her fans for patiently awaiting the release of Mariah Carey’s 14th studio album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse, available May 27th, Def Jam Recordings is premiering a previously unreleased official remix of the album’s lead single, “#Beautiful,” exclusively on Slant. Last summer, the singer revealed that she’d recorded new vocals for “a hot new dance remix” of her 33rd Top 20 hit, freestyling over a spare beat in an effervescent manner we haven’t heard from her since “Emotions.” But while that version sadly remains locked in the vaults (sorry, lambs, we tried our best!), we’re trilled to present another new mix by Swedish duo Cazzette, a.k.a. Sebastian Furrer and Alexander Björklund. The track’s hard-hitting EDM hook is right on trend, but Cazzette allows the verses to breathe just enough to preserve the original song’s old-school loop as well as Mimi and Miguel’s breezy vocals.
