Mariah Carey is celebrating the 15th anniversary of her iconic album The Emancipation of Mimi with some Easter singing.

On Sunday (April 12), Carey took to Instagram in a blue silk robe to belt out some choice lines from the 2005 before playing Easter bunny for her kids.

“I’m about to start my duties as the Easter Bunny but can’t forget about The Emancipation of Mimi‘s anniversary today!” she captioned the post. “Hope you enjoy these lil moments from the album.”

The “little moments” included Carey belting out lead and background vocals for TEOM track “Stay the Night” and delivering an extremely high pitched lyric from “We Belong Together.”

The Emancipation of Mimi was released April 12, 2015, and went on to sell six million copies in the U.S. The 14-track opus also earned Carey a whopping 10 Grammy nominations across 2006 and 2007.

In honor of the 15th anniversary of the now-iconic studio project, Carey recently spoke to Billboard about the creative process, success, and legacy of The Emancipation of Mimi.

“In terms of having huge hits, [TEOM] definitely was a very successful album, so people were like, ‘It’s a comeback album,’” Carey said. “For me, it was like a coming together of a lot of things with that album more than a comeback album. But they can call it that if they want to.”
