First released on Columbia Records on August 31, 1993, Mariah Carey’s eagerly-anticipated third studio album Music Box built on the already extraordinary musical and commercial achievements of her debut (Mariah Carey, 1990) and its successor (Emotions, 1991) to give the world a transcendent hit-filled masterpiece while securing the singer/songwriter/performer/artist’s international status as an iconic pop culture superstar and musical visionary.
Mariah Carey’s third studio album, Music Box featured five singles with the first three–“Dreamlover,””Hero” and “Without You”–topping charts around the world. Mariah was nominated for the Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Dreamlover”at the 1994 Grammy Awards while “Hero” and Mariah were nominated in the same category at the 1995 Grammy Awards. Music Box reached #1 in 15 countries including Australia, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified Music Box Diamond status as of November 5, 1997, for shipments of ten million copies across the United States. Most recently, the RIAA certified “Hero” as 3x platinum. With more than 30 million copies sold worldwide since its release, Music Box is Mariah Carey’s top-selling album and one of the best-selling albums of all time.
