Hip-hop star French Montana released a remix of his smash hit "Unforgettable" on Aug. 24. Pop icon Mariah Carey jumps on the new version.

"Unforgettable" is the lead single from Montana's latest album, Jungle Rules. The original version featuring Rae Sremmurd's Swae Lee has so peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Carey, who is no stranger to the top of the charts, joins the party on a surprise remix.

The atmospheric production and tropical beats on "Unforgettable" remain unchanged on the remix. Lee used to sing the whole chorus, but now he gets help from a more than capable Carey. Her smoky vocals bring a sultriness and feminine touch to the track. "You are unforgettable / I need to get you alone," she sings with Swae. Mariah brings her A-game with those whistle register notes at the grand finale. "Unforgettable" becomes even more of what the title suggests with M.C. in the mix.

The "Unforgettable" remix featuring Lee and Carey is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. Montana's Jungle Rules album hit No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart back in July.
