Did you know that today is the 22nd anniversary of Mariah Carey’s debut single, ‘Vision of Love’?
Released on May 15th 1990, ‘Vision of Love’ was the frist song issued from Carey’s self-titled debut album, which was entirely co-written by the diva. The song rocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and held the top slot for four consecutive weeks as the first of Carey’s 18 #1 singles – the most for any solo artist in history.
Carey scored four consecutive #1 singles on the Hot 100 from her debut album and became the second new act to accomplish that feat, following the Jackson 5. However, many critics still herald ‘Vision of Love’ as one of her signature songs as a modern Pop music standard. In fact, even Beyonce acknowledges the tune as her favourite song of all time and the record that inspired her to sing.
