 1997年Mariah发行了她的个人第7张专辑Butterfly。这张以蝴蝶为象征的专辑是Mariah的突破专辑,Mariah无论从形象还是歌曲风格,都和以往有了极其不同的转变。造型上她变的更加性感,而曲风也有以往的抒情,向Hip-Hop方向靠近。整张专辑显的活泼,丰富。

专辑首周就登上了专辑榜第一名,成为冠军专辑。5白金的销量也证明了该专辑的成功。在美国,专辑销量为5,800,000张。专辑中产生了两支冠军曲,"Honey"和"My All"。

“我的音乐从来没有如此个人化”Mariah说。只要浏览歌词就不难发现这一点。从音乐来讲,从"Honey"开始Mariah就努力向Hip-Hop靠近。不管怎样,新的Mariah都不像Music BoxDaydream里面的Mariah。

专辑中也有一些抒情曲,Mariah称它们为“从来没有写过的好”。一些作品是针对Tommy的。专辑中Mariah和不同的人合作,包括后来非常热门的Puffy Daddy和Missy Elliot。Butterfly

1998年1月第40届葛来美音乐奖入围名单揭晓,Mariah入围“最佳流行女歌手”和“最佳节奏蓝调女歌手”两项大奖。3月在日本NHK大会堂所举办的第12届日本金唱片大奖颁奖典礼中,Mariah获得“年度最畅销国际流行专辑”奖。
