Description

Music video by Mariah Carey performing Fantasy. 

(C) 1995 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT

"Fantasy" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey from her fifth studio album Daydream (1995), released in September 12, 1995 by Columbia Records as the lead single from Daydream. The song was written by Carey and Dave Hall, both serving as primary producers alongside Sean "P. Diddy" Combs. The song heavily samples Tom Tom Club's 1981 song "Genius of Love" and incorporates various other beats and grooves arranged by the former. The song's lyrics describe a woman who is in love with a man, and how every time she sees him she starts fantasizing about an impossible relationship with him. The remix for the song features rap verses from Ol' Dirty Bastard, something Carey arranged to assist in her crossover into the hip-hop market.

"Fantasy" became the second song in Billboard history, and the first by a female, to debut atop the Billboard Hot 100. Additionally, aside from topping the Hot 100 chart for eight consecutive weeks, the song top the charts in Australia, Canada and New Zealand, and was a top-five hit in Belgium, Finland, France and the United Kingdom.

The single's music video was the first that Carey directed entirely on her own. Carey had been open about the fact that she had not been happy with some of her previous music videos. She therefore decided to single-handedly direct the video, so the outcome would to her exact choosing. Carey said her inspiration for the video was to give off a "free and open feeling," trying to portray the freedom she had finally achieved in being allowed to direct her first video. The video for "Fantasy" debuted on September 7, at the "MTV Video Music Awards."
