Listen to Miguel on iHeartRadio | Listen to Mariah Carey on iHeartRadio

Before the crowd-surf-jump-move that went horribly wrong, Miguel chatted with Billboard magazine about working with Mariah Carey, new music and what inspires him.

“I’m always looking for something that I haven’t seen before,” he told Billboard in an interview before the award show. “[Also] something that’s going to make an impact [by] using simple elements but creatively so it makes people think a bit.”

Miguel recently collaborated with Mariah for her single, “#Beautiful,” and it currently is resting at No. 24 on the Hot 100 charts.

“Mariah is, she is so fast. Her mind is is extremely sharp,” he said. “I didn’t really know what to expect, how involved she would be creatively but … she was really behind the vision of ‘#Beautiful’ being a duet between her and I. The video went with all of that. She’s a mastermind.”

Miguel says he will be releasing two more singles from “Kaleidoscope Dream” and is working on a three-EP series similar to “Art Dealer Chic.” When does he sleep?!
