"Heavenly" is a song by American actress and singer Sofia Carson. It was released on May 10, 2019 through Capitol Records via the album's, Peaceful (2019), preorder announcement. It was initially released as a promotional single from the album, but was later serviced to contemporary hit radio on May 28, 2019. The song was written solely by Carson, and produced solely by Finneas O'Connell, as was her previous single, "Blue Dreams". "Heavenly" has a slow, melodic production which is assisted by Carson's soulful vocals. In the lyrics, Carson talks about the feeling she gets when she sees interacts with her lover. An earlier version of the song was performed on the second leg of Carson's Ethereal Tour (2017).
Music critics praised Carson's vocals and lyricism, and complimented the "smooth, catchy" production. "Heavenly" entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 79, before departing the following week. After being serviced to radio, the song re-entered the chart for five non-consecutive weeks. However, the song failed to reach a higher peak. The song reached the top 50 on many international charts, including Canada and the United Kingdom, among others. The song reached the top ten of the New Zealand Hot Singles chart, debuting and peaking at number 5.
