Before the emancipation...Before the butterfly emerged from the cocoon...Mariah Carey was a class act. Around the time she released her massively successful Daydream album did she begin her never ending quest for street cred. The lead single, Fantasy, debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 and was her biggest single to date. And thus began her remixes with the rapper du jour. For the video, Mariah lets loose and has fun at Rye Playland Amusement Park, a childhood summer destination. Following an afternoon of rollerblading, she rides The Dragon Coaster and repeatedly throws her hands over her head, reminding the viewer she is not part of a rhythm nation.
