Can you believe today (Sept. 16) is the 17th anniversary of Mariah Carey‘s ‘Butterfly’? The internet celebrated the occasion by trending the phrase “#Butterfly17thAnniversary.”

It seems the time has flown by, but now is a perfect time to look back on the impact the album made. The project’s lead single, ‘Honey,’ was certified platinum in the United States and was nominated for two Grammys in 1998: Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.

Additionally, ‘Butterfly’ entered the Billboard 200 at number one and remained in the top 20 for 21 weeks. Oh, and it was certified five-times platinum. Yep, that means more than five million copies of the album were sold!

It’s no surprise that the anniversary of ‘Butterfly’ has fans buzzing. While it clearly has racked up numerous accolades for Mariah, it is a classic album that remains a fan favorite. Like Mimi’s vocals, its power has stood the test of time — and that’s certainly worthy of some praise.

Here are how some fans are reacting to the 17th anniversary of Mariah Carey’s ‘Butterfly':
