Living legend, Mariah Carey, has a huge catalogue but there’s certain albums that hit different for me. “Butterfly” and “The Emancipation of Mimi” will always be at the top of my list because not only does she deliver VOCALS and first class songwriting (as always), the tunes are overflowing on both albums. 1997’s “Butterly” includes huge hit “Honey” and the remix, which features Mase & The Lox, as well as “Fourth of July”, “Butterfly”, “The Roof (Back In Time)” and “My All”. Elite Mariah songs!
“Butterfly” is Mariah’s first album where she took creative control including delving more into R&B & hip hop and she has often referred to the album as her magnum opas. Sometimes artists don’t always soar once they spread their wings but not only did she do just that, she continues to make good music to this day.
