Mariah Carey's latest track "#Beautiful" has been certified platinum in the US.
The singer celebrated the success of the song, which reached number one in 40 countries, by posing with her Island Def Jam label boss Steve Bartels.
Mariah posted the image on her Instagram page with the message: "As I heal from my recent injuries, it was nice for Steve Bartels, president of IDJ to come by and celebrate the Platinum success of "#Beautiful".
"Thank you lambily for having patience with me as I recover, I've never experienced any pain like this and I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy,lol yet true, L4L LYM."
"#Beautiful" serves as the first single from Mariah's most anticipated new album "The Art of Letting Go".
Ahead of the release of "The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2," Justin just debuted his new single after dropping multiple hints about the new song on his Istagram account.
“Should I release a new single today?” Timberlake wrote yesterday along with one photo. Apparently, the answer was yes.
"TKO," featuring his longtime collaborator Timbaland, is the second Single from Timberlake's upcoming album, "The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2," due Sept. 30. In July the pop superstar put out "Take Back the Night," which itself followed a string of hits from Timberlake's first album of 2013, "The 20/20 Experience."
The new track comes on more strongly than the lightly disco-fied "Take Back the Night," with a grinding hip-hop beat and squelchy synth licks; it's also longer, at just over seven minutes.
"TKO" arrives at the start of a typically busy week for Timberlake, who is to perform tonight at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas, then head to L.A. for a free outdoor show Tuesday on Hollywood Boulevard. The singer has said he'll do new material at both gigs.
Listen to "TKO" below.
