WATCH: Mariah Carey Takes You Behind the Scenes of Her '#Beautiful' Video

The new era is upon us if you believe what Mariah Carey has to say. Her latest single "#Beautiful" is only the first step in her musical resurgence (her new album is set to drop in July), which is why we were all intrigued when the video — with its sun-kissed vanity close-ups, chic slip dresses, and super fancy cars and motorcycles — intrigued us. The diva has now released a new behind-the-scenes video featuring director Joseph Kahn, which shows exactly how you make self-absorption and summer flirtation look so good. It apparently takes a lot of unwillingness to roll around in horse dung, a lot of faith in your co-singer's talents (Miguel), and a lot of belief in the return of classic R&B.
