Published: Thursday 15th Nov 2018 by Sam

The glow-up is all sorts of real for Mariah Carey‘s ‘Glitter.’

Released 17 years ago alongside the movie of the same name, the project ran risk of derailing the diva’s career after imploding on the charts and at the box office.

Yet, fast forward to now (on the eve of the release of her 15th album ‘Caution’), the LP has reached the apex of music’s biggest retail platform – iTunes.

Details below…

Powered by a discount, the set (which over the years has developed a cult-like following) steadily climbed its way into the top 10 and today reached #1:

      BITC_HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I BROUGHT the ALBUM last night and LOVE it. Lead the Way is breathtaking and why was this not the SONG of her career. She sings it like the PRO she needs to be in 2019.

    This is a testimony to the power of social media and the loyalty of mariahs fan base! The whole #JusticeforGlitter campaign took off like wildfire and now look! The amount of good press coming through from this right before her new album is amazing!

    I bought the album when it came out and still have it. Listened to it yesterday for the nostalgia. LOVe, Love, love. I didn’t Mean To Turn You On, All My Life (written by Rick James BÏTCH), want you and loverboy(the original) are my favs. Lead The Way is a great vocal moment!

  8. ??? November 15, 2018

    I have to give credit to the Lambs they did “The Impossible.” Did something no other fanbase could do.
