 Honey (Mariah Carey song) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Honey" was Carey's twelfth number-one single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and became her third single to debut at number one, consolidating her position as the artist with the most number-one debuts (the others being "Fantasy" and "One Sweet Day", both 1995).
After its sales had begun to decline, radio airplay was not strong enough to keep "Honey" popular, and it began a new trend for Carey's singles that would not end until the release of "We Belong Together" (2005): the CD single would sell well, but the song would only achieve average success on the radio.
Several remixes were commissioned for "Honey", most notably the "Bad Boy remix" and the "Classic mix", the latter of which appears on Carey's remix compilation The Remixes (2003).

 The World's Healthiest Foods: Honey
Primarily honey has been used as an energy source, but recent research has examined the use of honey as an ergogenic aid (a food or ingredient that helps an athlete's performance) and wound healing agent, both of which were once considered merely age-old anecdotes.
