Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature forged to honour some of the brightest moments in TV and Film.
Today, we take a pleasant journey to the past to celebrate the release of Mariah Carey‘s ‘Butterfly’ album and supporting era and the interviews she gave to promote the set.
Powered by poignant storytelling and charged by feelings of love, loneliness, loss, growth and change, the album was launched on September 16th 1997 and saw her step away from her sounds of yesteryear and glide further towards R&B with help from Missy Elliott, Diddy, Bone Thugs n Harmony, Cory Rooney and Walter Afanasieff.
It wasn’t raining yet
But it was definitely
A little misty on
That warm November night
It has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
Find out how below…
Last night I dreamed that I
Whispered the words I love you
And touched you so very
Subtly as we were kissing goodbye
Pretty baby, how I’m missing you
