One week after that it is at #2, where is seemed to stall shy of the top position, and indeed, it would be some time before it gained that elusive number 1 spot - Until Christmas, to be exact. Once it achieved #1, Music Box was very reluctant to move down again. It stayed there for 3 weeks, slipped, then came back, slipped again and returned until it ended up spending a total of 8 weeks at #1. As of today it US-sales is 10 million copies. Soundscan sales 7003017. It's the first of Mariah's albums to have gone Diamond. Sales is about 25 million worldwide.

MTV Unplugged had proved a profitable diversion, both commercially and artistically, but the time was now right for Mariah to re-enter the mainstream. The chosen vehicle was "Music Box", her third full-length release in four years and the one which took her back to the top of the album listings. Its predecessors had stalled at four and three respectively. But why the title? "The beautiful tinkling sound that comes out of a music box is so pretty and so delicate. I love it." The choice of the lead single was as ever of the highest importance: just as the runaway success of "Vision Of Love" had pulled the debut album to pole position in its wake, so it was crucial to choose the right cut. After the "revivalist" nature of her last hit the choice was made to kick off with something highly contemporary - "Dreamlover", penned by Mariah and Dave Hall, with Walter Afanasieff joining them on the production front. It was a medium tempo new jack swing-styled song and proved good enough to go all the way. The follow-up, as ever, was a Carey-Afanasieff ballad, "Hero", which emulated its predecessor
