''Daydream'' is the fifth studio album by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey, released on October 3, 1995 by Columbia Records as the follow-up to Carey's commercially successful 1993 album ''Music Box'' and 1994 holiday album ''Merry Christmas''. ''Daydream'' was slightly different from ''Music Box'', as it leaned increasingly towards R&B and hip hop and features less of a pure blues sound, a decision that was made by Carey and was not initially well received by her record label, Columbia Records.

Despite her record label not being impressed about her new sound on the album, The album was well received by critics and Mariah's fans. In terms of sales, ''Daydream'' exceeded expectations - eventually becoming her second best selling album behind ''Music Box'', shipping 10 million copies in the United States alone. ''Daydream'' is Carey's second album to have achieved diamond status in the U.S. ''Daydream'' was listed by the National Association of Recording Merchandisers in their Definitive 200 Albums of All Time as the 116th most influential and popular album in history. In Australia, the album finished 9th on the ARIA 1995 & 1996 End of Year Chart and 2nd on Billboard's 1996 Year-End Chart ''Daydream'' remains one of the best-selling albums of all time, with sales of over 25 million copies worldwide. - Wikipedia
