Mariah Carey - Daydream

About Daydream by Mariah Carey Album

Daydream is the fifth studio album by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey, released on October 3, 1995, by Columbia Records. The follow-up to her internationally successful album Music Box (1993) and holiday album Merry Christmas (1994), Daydream differed from the two by leaning increasingly towards hip hop and urban music. Throughout the project, Carey collaborated with Walter Afanasieff, with whom she wrote and produced most of her two previous albums. With Daydream, Carey took more control over the musical direction as well as the album's composition. Carey said she considered Daydream the beginning of her musical and vocal transformation, a change that became more apparent in her sixth album Butterfly (1997). During the album's production, Carey endured many creative differences with her label and husband Tommy Mottola. On Daydream, Carey collaborated with Jermaine Dupri for the first time, and co-wrote and produced a song with Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, with whom she had collaborated on Music Box. It was also the first time she had worked with Boyz II Men, an R&B group consisting of four male vocalists. Together, they wrote the concept and lyrics for "One Sweet Day", a song that Carey co-produced with Afanasieff. With his assistance and the addition of a few contemporary producers, she was able to make a subtle transition into the R&B market. Daydream was nominated for six Grammy Awards at the 38th annual ceremony, during which Carey performed live. Due to the album's critical and commercial success, critics believed Carey would be one of the night's big winners. However, to her dismay, she was completely shut out, causing the subject to become very public and controversial. She left the annual ceremony empty-handed. Six singles were released from the album. Its lead single "Fantasy" became the first single by a female artist to debut at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and went on to top the chart for eight weeks, and became the second best-selling single of 1995 in the country. The song topped the charts in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, and became a top-five hit in Finland, France, and the United Kingdom. The second single "One Sweet Day" topped the Billboard Hot 100 for sixteen weeks and became the longest-running number one single in American history. In addition to its success in the United States it also topped the charts in Canada and New Zealand, and peaked within the top five in Australia, France, Ireland and the Netherlands. Jointly, the singles from Daydream spent a combined six months at the top of the Hot 100. To promote Daydream, Carey embarked on the short but successful, Daydream World Tour, visiting Japan and Europe. Daydream became Carey's best-reviewed album up to that point and an international commercial success, debuting at number one in nine different countries, and in the top five in almost every major music market. It was Carey's second album to be certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), denoting shipments of ten million copies in the United States. The album made the top five of the best-selling albums in Japan by a non-Asian artist, with 2.1 million copies sold. Daydream remains one of the best-selling albums of all time, with more than 20 million copies sold worldwide.

This is by far my favourite mariah carey album it has such beautiful ballads such as always be my baby,open arms, and looking in but it also has a pure pop feel with songs like fantasy and melt away this is mariahs greatest by far.

- Best Album Ever!

I have to say I absolutely love all Mariah's songs in this album, and the tone of her voice, is just so mesmerising. My favourite songs out of this album is Looking In, When I Saw You, Always Be My Baby and Melt Away. I also like this album as she has more control over the musical direction, and to be honest the fact that she puts in RnB and ballads, makes it priceless and unbeatable. This is my favourite album, and this Mariah Carey's best!

- Her biggest album in America!!

Can you blame them?? With HUGE hits like "Fantasy" "One Sweet Day" and "Always Be My Baby"?!?!? This album was destined to go down in history!! With classic ballads such as "Open Arms" or hints of Sexy Touch My Body- esque songs like "Melt Away"!! GREAT ALBUM!! 10/10

Her best one. Don’t @ me

- Hypnotic, Soothing, Relaxing, Emotional and Brilliant!

This is Mariah's biggest selling album in the USA, and it is easy to see why! From the brilliant dance of Fantasy to the smooth, sleek R&B of Looking In, this is absolutely brilliant, ranking as one of Mariah's best.

- One of her best

This is one of Mariah's best records. If you buy one song, make sure it's 'Looking In', the final track, which is an amazing ballad with great lyrics and my favourite song that Mariah has ever released. The rest of the album is great too, apart from the singles which most people know, the stand-out tracks are 'When I Saw You', 'Open Arms' and 'I Am Free'. This record has a great blend of ballads and up-tempo R'n'B. It's definitely worth a listen.

- Best vocals!

Daydreamish just like the title

- Heaven

The album of Mariah’s Prime Vocals!

- Mariah The Diva

This is the voice that I really like when Mariah Carey sang

Daydream Wiki

Daydreaming is the stream of consciousness that detaches from current, external tasks when attention drifts to a more personal and internal direction. This phenomenon is common in people's daily life shown by a large-scale study in which participants spend 47% of their waking time on average on daydreaming. There are various names of this phenomenon including mind wandering, fantasy, spontaneous thoughts, etc. Daydreaming is the term used by Jerome L. Singer whose research laid the foundation for nearly all the subsequent research today. The terminologies assigned by researchers today puts challenges on identifying the common features of daydreaming, and on building collective work among researchers.There are many types of daydreams, and there is no consistent definition among psychologists. However, the characteristic that is common to all forms of daydreaming meets the criteria for mild dissociation. Also, the impacts of different types of daydreams are not identical. While some are disruptive and deleterious, others may be beneficial in some way.
