Dreamlover was the first single released from Mariah Carey's 1993 album Music Box, and spent eight weeks at the top of the U.S. charts, making it one of the biggest hits of her career. Carey's CD singles, from the offset, always came equipped with dance and R&B mixes in order to please her wide array of audiences (she has always been a cross-format star, appealing to adult contemporary listeners, urban listeners, dance listeners, and young pop fans). Dreamlover continued that tradition, which began with her 1991 hit single Someday (although it only contains club mixes, as opposed to hip-hop mixes). The song, in its original form, is a light, bubbly pop song, but in its remixed form is transformed into a tribal, dizzying club anthem, infinitely more cutting edge than the original version. For the "Def Club Mix" (the best version on the single), the vocals were re-recorded in order to fit the song's new house beat, turning this tune into a late-night dance epic. Gospel-styled backing vocals were added (featuring future star Kelly Price), as were newly recorded Carey ad-libs that pepper the latter half of the mix. There is also an instrumental, as well as two dub mixes and a tribal mix, which are also more or less instrumentals (except for the tribal mix, which includes Carey's ad-libs). Well-packaged singles such as this easily explain why and how her hits were able to top the charts for such lengthy spans of time. ~ Jose Promis
