"Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse" >>> " #Beautiful" was quickly met with widespread acclaim from fans and critics alike. Most critics compliment the songs instrumental, production and vocals and described it as "seductive". Although most critics were very sceptical about the hashtag used in the title upon it's release, they were eventually happy to admit to being proven wrong. Carrie Battan for Pitchfork Media was critical of the use of the hashtag in the song's title, but applauded it for featuring Miguel, and said that the song had "the finger-snapping R&B throwback charm that sounds primed for repeat play through the summer". Aisha Harris of Slate also said " #Beautiful" could be one of the hits of the summer, calling it "a breezy duet" that "is pure pop, and it sounds great." Personally I absolutely love this song so much, it's slow yet slightly an uptempo R&B jam. I'd even go as far as to say that it's one of, if not the best song on the album, its definitely my favorite cut from the album. The video was pretty simple, but nonetheless stunning. Both Mariah and Miguel looked and sounded amazing.
