Mariah Carey & Millie Bobby Brown Hilariously Recreate Opening Scene of ‘Honey’ Video: Watch
‘Relive the splendor and surprise of the Honey video with guests! The icon wrote.
Mariah Carey is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Butterly with some help from Millie Bobby Brown.
The iconic singer took to social media on Saturday (Sept. 17) to share a hilarious recreation of the opening scene from her 1997 music video for hit song “Honey.” In the 30-second clip, MC plays the same Spanish-speaking damsel in distress as the Stranger Things actress takes on the role of her tough-as-nails kidnapper.
“Reliving the splendor of the Honey video with surprise guests!” Carey captioned the comical skit on Instagram, tagging Brown and adding the hashtag #butterfly25.
Later in the clip, the songstress’ children, 11-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, show up to recite comedian Eddie Griffin’s comical “go eat a buffet” line from the video’s intro.
Carey and Brown aren’t the first to hang out. Mimi shared a photo of the two stars hanging out in August 2020. “A surprise visit from Enola Holmes a.k.a. princess Millie!” Carey wrote alongside the snapshot, referencing the actress’ role as the title character in the mystery film Enola Holmes.
“Honey,” the lead single by Butterfly, remained at No. 1 for three weeks. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1997.
On Friday, Carey released an extended edit of “Honey” as part of Butterfly‘s 25th anniversary celebration. The edit, which is almost eight minutes long, is included as a bonus track on the re-release of this classic album.
The remix comes among other re-release bonuses, including 4K remastered versions of “Honey” and “The Roof” music videos, a new “Honey” music video documentary, classic live performances being released through Carey’s YouTube in September, Butterfly on cassette, and Deluxe Butterfly 4LP and 2LP Editions.
