Mariah Carey to celebrate 20th anniversary of 'Butterfly' with vinyl edition

Mariah Carey’s sixth studio album, Butterfly, celebrated its 20th anniversary Saturday. To honor the occasion, a collector’s edition 12-inch vinyl picture disc will be released on October 20th. 

The original cover photo and a special note from Mariah to her fans are also included in the package.

Butterfly featured hits including “Honey” – which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of its release in 1997 and became Mimi’s 12th No. 1 song – as well as “Breakdown,” “The Roof,” and “Butterfly.” 

The 12th track is Mariah’s cover of Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” (from Purple Rain) recorded as a duet with Dru Hill. Guest artists on Butterfly include Mase & The Lox (on “Honey”) and Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone from Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony (on “Breakdown”).

In a statement, Mariah says that Butterfly “is my favorite album. It’s the most personal work I’ve ever done and always be a defining moment in my career and in my life. I’m so happy to celebrate this anniversary with such a special release! Stay tuned for more surprises!”

You can pre-order the Butterfly 12-inch vinyl picture disc now via Amazon.
