Make it happen - Mariah Carey

'Make it happen' was written and produced by Mariah Carey with David Cole and Robert Clivillés of the C+C Music Factory, and recorded for Carey's second album, 'Emotions' (1991). The song is characterized best as a dance/gospel track with uplifting lyrics like 'If you believe in yourself enough and know what you want, you're going to make it happen.'

After Carey's first five U.S. singles had reached number 1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, her sixth single 'Can't let go' had peaked at number 2. It was hoped that 'Make it happen' would be a number 1 again, but this time the single got to number 5. It did no better in the UK, where the single stalled at number 17.
