Mariah Carey’s ‘Emotions’ single

Released: August 13th, 1991

Mariah Carey released ‘Emotions’ as the lead single from the album of the same name.

It was written and produced by Mariah, Robert Clivillés and David Cole.


The single became Mariah’s fifth consecutive #1 in the US, making her the only artist in history to have their first five singles top the chart.

It also became her third #1 on the R&B chart, and her second #1 on the Dance Club Songs chart.


The intro of the ‘Emotions’ 12″ Club Mix has become as well-known as the original song, ever since Mariah performed it for her MTV Unplugged show in 1992, and she continues to start ‘Emotions’ that way when she performs it live.

‘Emotions’ won a ‘BMI Pop Music Award’ for ‘Best Song’.
