“Oh my God, I got stuck in the rain in traffic, and I thought I was going to miss this moment. I could have missed the award, that’s fine, but not Mariah Carey. I just saw you at the Hollywood Bowl, and it was everything.”

Flowers topped the Billboard Hot 100 for straight eight weeks after its release and broke Spotify’s record for most streams in a single week with more than 100 million listens.
