"Never Forget You" is a R&B/pop slow jam song written by American singer Mariah Carey and Babyface. It was produced by Carey, Babyface, and Daryl Simmons for Carey's third album, Music Box (1993). It was released as the third single from Music Box in the first quarter of 1994, as a double A-side with a cover of Badfinger's "Without You." No music video was commissioned for the album version or any of the remixes, making it Carey's first commercially released single not to be accompanied by a video.
At the time of the single's release in the U.S. as "Without You & Never Forget You," Billboard magazine's rules allowed double-sided singles to chart together as one entry on the singles chart. A song that picked up the most airplay and/or sales for the respective chart was listed as the A-side. On the U.S. pop charts, it was listed as "Without You/Never Forget You" and reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100, remaining in the top forty for 21 weeks.
The maxi-single of "Never Forget You" was only released in the United States and promoted to Urban radio audiences, charting as the A-side when it appeared on the R&B charts. As "Never Forget You/Without You," it reached the top ten on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart primarily due to sales, and the RIAA certified it gold.
Jermaine Dupri's R&B remixes of the song are included on its maxi-single release. A radio edit, an extended version and the instrumental version of the remix replace Babyface's original production with a new, pulsating synthetic R&B rhythm. The instrumental version was used on Carey's episode of MTV Cribs.
The song has been covered by a Japanese R&B singer Double and is featured on her greatest hits album 10 Years Best: We R&B.
