Mariah Carey reissues ‘most personal album’


This butterfly’s getting a new set of wings.

Mariah Carey’s sixth studio album, “Butterfly,” is being reissued in honor of its 25th anniversary Friday, the singer announced Wednesday.

“#Butterfly25 is here!! Celebrating 25… minutes… since the release of my favorite and probably most personal album,” the Grammy winner, 53, wrote on Instagram.

The album, which originally dropped on Sept. 16, 1997, was nominated for three Grammy Awards.

The title track scored a nomination for best female pop vocal performance, while “Honey” was nominated for best female R&B vocal performance and best rhythm & blues song.

Carey noted Thursday on Instagram that there is an entirely new merchandise collection available to celebrate the milestone, including pillows, shirts, a $100 rug and more.

In addition to “Butterfly” and “Honey,” the album features songs like “My All,” “The Roof” and “Close My Eyes.”

The “We Belong Together” singer’s announcement came the same day ex-husband Nick Cannon announced via Instagram that he was officially a father of nine, after welcoming his first child with model LaNisha Cole.
