Never Forget You

"Never Forget You" is a pop/R&B slow jam song written by American singer Mariah Carey and Babyface, and produced by Carey, Babyface and Daryl Simmons for Carey's third album Music Box (1993). It was released as the third single from Music Box in the first quarter of 1994 (see 1994 in music), as a double A-side with a cover of Badfinger's "Without You". There was no music video commissioned for the album version or any of the remixes, making it Carey's first commercially released single not to be accompanied by a video. Carey has never performed this song live.

Chart performance

At the time of the single's release, Billboard magazine's rules allowed double-sided singles to chart together as one entry. The single which would pick up most airplay/sales for the respective chart would be listed as the A-side. On the U.S. pop charts, including the Hot 100, "Without You" was listed as the A-side. It reached number three on the Hot 100 and remained in the top forty for twenty-one weeks.

The R&B charts were the opposite, with "Never Forget You" being listed as the A-side. Unlike "Without You". It reached the top ten on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart primarily because of its sales, and the RIAA certified it gold.

Remixes and other versions

Jermaine Dupri's R&B remixes of the song are included on its maxi-single release. A radio edit, an extended version and the instrumental version replace Babyface's original production with a new, pulsating synthetic R&B rhythm. The instrumental version was used on Mariah's episode of MTV Cribs when Mariah was in her living room.

The song has been covered by a Japanese R&B singer "Double" and is featured on her greatest hits album "10 Years Best: We R&B".
