http://forum.popjustice.com/threads/mid ... 85/page-1316.07.05- 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....
1- GHETTO GOSPEL- 2Pac Ft Elton John (39,627)
