As you might be aware, one of the reasons we are called EST. 1997, is because we feel Mariah Carey’s Butterfly is one of the greatest albums of all-time. So, it’s only natural that we acknowledge it’s 18th anniversary today. Fortunately for us, and you!, we have 9 different articles for the Lambily to delve into about Mariah’s magnum opus. We’ve discussed every song at length, as well as the album as a whole, and even its music videos. What could we cover next in regards to Butterfly? Tweet us and let us know.

In the meantime, we’ll be doing a contest, giving away one copy of Butterfly to a random winner. We imagine that if you’re voting in the contest, you own the album, and encourage you to win a copy to give to someone who has never heard Butterfly before. It makes a great gift! Fill out the form below to enter. Unfortunately, we can only ship within the United States, but please feel free to vote, still. The deadline for the contest is Wednesday, September 23rd, 2015.
