    Words cannot describe how amazing and underrated this song is. Still sounds so fresh! And the lyrics are just incredible.


    "Breakdown" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey from her sixth studio album, Butterfly (1997). It was released as the fourth single from the album on March 22, 1998 by Columbia Records. Similar to the treatments of "Butterfly and The Roof (Back in Time)", "Breakdown" received a limited worldwide release due to Carey's conflict at the time with Sony. The song was written and produced by Carey, Stevie J and Puff Daddy, and features rap verses by Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. The song's lyrics describe the emotions someone feels when their lover suddenly stops loving and leaves them, and the pain, or breakdown, it causes the person. The song was well received by contemporary music critics.

    In the music video, Carey goes through a variety of different colorful outfits, with matching make-up. Of the many changes, two scenes predominantly occupy the video. The first in Carey dressed in flamenco style clothing, while dancing on a chair with two other female dancers. The other features Carey and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony gambling in a casino. Carey performed the song live during select dates of her Butterfly World Tour in 1998 and Adventures of Mimi Tour in 2006. Due to the song's limited release, "Breakdown" did not chart in most major music markets, with the exception of Australia and New Zealand, where it peaked at numbers 38 and four, respectively. In the US, due to Billboard rules at the time, the song was unable to chart on the Hot 100, but charted at number 53 on the Hot 100 Airplay Chart.

    It's my second favourite Mariah song and my favourite Mariah video.

    I bought the 'Butterfly' album because of this song

    Without a doubt my favorite song of hers from my favorite album of hers. I wonder how this would’ve done as a fully promoted release, and wish it along with the roof could’ve had that chance.

    The lyrics of this song are sublime. It's one of those songs that connect me most to MC.

    This somehow never really clicked with me. I like it, but that's about it. I love everything else on the 'Butterfly' album though.
    Should give it another chance I guess.

    I won't call it "underrated" as it's one of her songs that usually gets mentioned to the point that it's gotten a bit overrated.

    I prefer The Roof and Babydoll to this, but this is indeed one of the high points of Mariah's career.

    Love this song, it paved the way for "I Still Believe (Pure Imagination)" and "Cry Baby" IMO.

    This is another lyrical masterpiece from her magnum opus. I wouldn't say it's underrated, but it does get lost a bit in the Butterfly shuffle.

    Underrated?
    Surely among the GP, but I feel like most lambs would put it in their top 20 of Mimi songs (and rightly so!)

    If she and Tommy were still happy together and agreed on this concept (obviously her creativity here was due to her break-up and emancipation from him) all singles here would have been huge hits. Nobody was ready for "Fantasy" with Ol' Dirty Bastard coming off a AC/Pop album that is Music Box but she and Tommy made it happen.

    One of her best underrated songs next to The Roof.
