Posting a photo on Instagram today (5 September), Mariah looked stunning in a cute pink mini dress with a plunging neckline.

The 'Heartbreaker' singer was also sporting a rather plain black sling as she stood next to Steve Bartels, president of Island Def Jam records.

Captioning the photo, the mum-of-two said: "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 [fans] 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."

The superstar received the injury while shooting the remix video for '#Beautiful', which was being directed by husband Nick Cannon.

Proving that she show must go on, Mariah still performed on stage and made several appearances in customised arm slings.
