OMG, I found this:

16.07.05- WE BELONG TOGETHER- Mariah Carey- MIDWEEK- CLOSE SHAVE- ENDED UP NO 2

The closest run race of that year- Mariah was back! Less customary histrionics from Carey on "We Belong Together" almost did the trick for her here and give her a third UK No.1 and first since 2000. The video by the way is rather good, in which she dumps an old guy at the alter for Wentworth Miller (he of "Prison Break" fame) before eloping in a car.

Anyway back to the point, Mariah was in a struggle with the aforementioned "Ghetto Gospel" running 185 copies behind on Wednesday update before steaming ahead by 1k by the Friday update- the fate of No 1 that Sunday looked a done deal and remains one of those moments when the chart threw up a genuine surprise! Come Sunday however and Carey had cancelled all her TV appearances for the following week and that day's "Chart Show" telephone call with JK & Joel due to "illness". Some have suggested this she didn't take the news too well.....she's never been this close again either....

Sales

1- GHETTO GOSPEL- 2Pac Ft Elton John (39,627)
2- WE BELONG TOGETHER- Mariah Carey (39,235)

I really want her to work with Babyface again! Though they only sampled his song "Two Occasions" here, she has worked with him in "Melt Away" and she performed backing vocals in "Every Time I Close My Eyes". :cry: :cry:

I can't believe I just read this. :roll: :lol:

Though I do believe Dont Forget About Us is a more well rounded song overall, We Belong Together is still well put together. That being said, I only play it once every few weeks or so. I suppose that helps with keeping it sounding fresh.
