The second album, originally to be titled "The wind" after one of the tracks it contained, had taken on the name of the proposed lead single "Emotions" when it was released on September 17, 1991. The album debuted at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 200, and that was also the albums's peak position. "Emotions" saw Mariah gain a co-writing credit for each and every track. First out of the box as a single was "Emotions", which made it five number 1s in a row on its release in mid October. Penned by the Carey-Clivilles-Cole team, it was premiered by Mariah at the eighth annual MTV Awards ceremony in September and its rapturous reception must have been music to the ears of anyone in Columbia fretting about Carey's ability to manage without her usual co-writer.

This of course, was the song that beat the Jackson Five's 21 year old record of four US chart-toppers in their first four releases - a fact that was much a thrill for the two former DJs as it was for the girl who sang the song. "Working with Mariah was fun," Cole revealed. "Robert and I came up with a whole bunch of grooves. If this worked, cool, if this doesn't work, next. We would all come together and decide..."

The album saw Mariah using the full extent of her amazing multioctave vocal range - and that's something she can thank Clivilles and Cole for encouraging. "The high stuff is what she's known for," Cole admitted not long after the session, "and we had to include it. But as we started working, we decided we didn't want to use it as much as we could have. We didn't want it to become a gimmick. But it's amazing. Listen to the very low note and you compare that to the high notes that she hits. She's got an incredible range."
