Mariah Carey's official music video for 'Butterfly'. Spread your wings and prepare to fly For you have become a butterfly Fly abandonedly into the sun If you should return to me We truly were meant to be So spread your wings and fly Butterfly. I have learned that beauty Has to flourish in the light Wild horses run unbridled Or their spirit dies You have given me the courage To be all that I can And truly feel your heart will Lead you back to me when you're Ready to land.

Butterfly (Mariah Carey album). With Butterfly, Carey continued the transition that began with previous album, Daydream (1995), which pushed her further into the R&B and hip hop market and away from the pop background of her previous work. During her marriage to Tommy Mottola, Carey had little control over the creative and artistic steps she took on her albums; however, after their divorce midway through the album's conception, she was able to reflect her creative maturity and evolution in the album's writing and recording

Butterfly is Mariah’s sixth studio album. It was released on September 16, 1997 and peaked at on the Billboard 200 in early October. Developed during her separation from Tommy Mottola, Butterfly is Mariah’s most personal and introspective work. She considers it to be her magnum opus and a turning point in her career. Stylistically, this album continues a transition towards the R&B and hip-hop market, a move that had begun on her previous album Daydream.

Mariah Carey is genre-less. Of course she’s technically pop, in the purest sense of the word. With ten platinum studio albums, 34 Grammy Nominations, countless Billboard hits and a slew of other record-breaking achievements, she is undoubtedly one of the most popular and prolific artists of all time. But Butterfly was more than a statement of her proverbial metamorphosis as an artist and woman. The album had tangible implications in her personal life and musical legacy. For one, it was her first album after her separation from Tommy Mottola, a divorce that afforded her the creative and personal freedom to produce music on her own terms.
