25 Years Ago in the Nineties: Mariah Carey “Can’t Let Go”
Mariah Carey hit number one on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart with each of her first five charting singles. The streak would break with “Can’t Let Go,” the second single from her second album, Emotions. “Can’t Let Go” only reached number 2, though in the process, it extended Carey’s streak of Top 5 hits that would eventually reach eleven. Exactly 25 years ago, “Can’t Let Go” climbed into the Top 5 on its way up the Hot 100 chart.
