As the age old adage goes, “anything can happen” and for Mariah Carey it’s ringing all sorts of true.
The diva supreme may be gearing up for the release of her new album ‘Caution,’ but it’s her most polarizing project ‘Glitter’ that is glowing on the charts.
The 2001 set, which served as the soundtrack of the movie of the same name, was panned in earnest and ultimately led to the voiding of Carey’s mega-millions contract with then-label Virgin. Its arrival also arrived in tandem with the songbird’s infamous breakdown.
However, in the years that have passed, the album and movie have taken on a cult-like status.
Now, in a unique development, the set has shot into the top 10 of iTunes US. As at writing, it’s currently #8. [UPDATE: It’s risen to #3]
Remarking on the sudden surge, Mimi tweeted:
We’d rather rejoice than ask questions, because ‘Glitter’ (the album) was the definition of underrated. Case in point…
All that’s needed now is for a streaming release. Make it happen!
