#Butterfly is the sixth studio album of the singer-songwriter which was originally released on September 16, 1997. The album, which contains contemporary and hip-hop songs, was also labeled the "most personal album" of Carey after her devastating divorce from Tommy Mottola.

The Butterfly album came to be her wings in showcasing not just her vocal prowess as one of the sought-after contemporary musicians, but also her strength and essence as a woman.  

On the other hand, Lambily (name of Mariah Stans) expressed their joy and excitement through tweets. Everyone is delighted to celebrate the album anniversary on Friday and witness another breathtaking performance from their idol.  

As reported by Billboard Magazine, Mariah Carey is also set to perform at the 2022 Global Citizen Festival in New York City this September together with other performers like Metallica, Charlie Puth, the Jonas Brothers, Usher, and Sza.
