Glitter is the soundtrack to the film of the same name and the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Mariah Careyreleased on September 11, by Virgin Records. It was a complete musical departure from any of Carey's previous releases, focusing heavily on recreating a s post-disco era to accompany the film, set in By covering or heavily sampling several older tunes and songs, Carey created Glitter as an album that would help viewers connect with the film, as well as incorporating newly written ballads.
Musically, Glitter was structured to be a retro-influenced album and have more of a dance-oriented element. On several songs, critics noted Carey to be more sexually suggestive lyrically than before, in part due to the inclusion of several guest hip hop musicians.
Upon release, both the album and its accompanying film were met with Comme Je Taime - Claude Michel - Toute Ma Tendresse Et Mille Baisers negative reviews from critics, who felt it failed in trying to capture a genuine s theme, and there were too many guest appearances.
Retrospective reviews, however, have been largely positive, with many saying the album was unfairly maligned. While it debuted at number seven on the US Billboardit was Carey's lowest-first week sales of any album she had ever released.
Internationally, it peaked outside the top-ten in many countries, but topped the charts in Japan. Glitter became Carey's least successful album at the time, selling two million copies worldwide.
Several singles were released but attained weak charting positions. As the song stalled on the American charts, Virgin dropped its price to spur sales, which helped the single peak at number two on the US Billboard Hot ; internationally, the song failed to garner much traction. Subsequent singles failed to make much of an impact on prominent global charts, with some not charting at all.
Nearly two decades after its release, Glitter began to attract wide praise from mainstream critics and has developed a cult following. Following the release of Carey's album Butterfly inshe began working on a film and soundtrack project titled at that time as All That Glitters.
After the album ran its course, Carey wanted to finish the film and soundtrack project. But by this time, Carey and her now ex-husband Tommy Mottola, head of her record company Columbia, did not have a good working or personal relationship. Mottola wanted Carey off the label and Carey If We - Mariah* - Glitter to leave; however, she still owed Columbia one more album to fulfill her contract.
Carey signed with Virgin and aimed to complete the film and soundtrack project. She began posting a series of disturbing messages on her official website, and If We - Mariah* - Glitter erratic behavior while on several promotional outings.
Following commencement for Glitter and the release of the soundtrack's lead single " Loverboy ", Carey embarked on a short promotional campaign for the song and its parent album. In the days following her appearance on TRLCarey began displaying what was described as "erratic behavior". As a camera crew covered the event, she began rambling on several subjects before finally discussing radio-host Howard Stern and how his jokes about herself on his program bothered her greatly and how everything in life should be positive.
At that point, Carey's publicist Cindi If We - Mariah* - Glitter grabbed the microphone from her hand, and asked the news crew to stop filming. Berger said later, "She was not speaking clearly and not talking about what she had come to talk about: her record.
I'm trying to understand things in life right now and so I really don't feel that I should be doing music right now. What I'd like to do If We - Mariah* - Glitter just a take a little break or at least get one night of sleep without someone popping up about a video. All I really want is [to] just be me and that's what I should have done in the first place I don't say this much but guess what, I don't take care of myself. Following the quick removal of the messages, Berger commented that Carey had been "obviously exhausted and not thinking clearly" when she posted the letters.
Following the heavy media coverage surrounding Carey's publicized breakdown and hospitalization, Coffins - Ancient Torture Records and 20th Century Fox delayed the release of both Glitteras Stuppelhah Is Vorüber - Various - Erzgebirgs-Weihnacht as its soundtrack of the same name.
Mariah is looking forward to being able to participate in both her album and movie projects and we are hopeful that this new soundtrack release date will allow her to do so. She has been making great recovery progress, and continues to grow stronger every day. Virgin Music Worldwide continues to give its absolute commitment and support to Mariah on every level. When discussing the project's weak commercial reaction, Carey blamed the If We - Mariah* - Glitter attacks of September I became a punching bag.
I was so successful that they tore me down If We - Mariah* - Glitter my album was at number 2 instead of number 1. The media was laughing at me and attacked me. Glitter performed poorly at the box-office. These decisions were brought on due to the low sales of the album, as well as the negative publicity surrounding her breakdown.
Musically, Glitter was notably different from anything Carey had ever written or recorded, drawing influence from the s. There are songs that are definitely going to take people back and make them go, 'Oh, man, this song from the '80s — If We - Mariah* - Glitter loved it growing up'. Or people who never heard the songs before might be like, 'This is cool.
Serving as the project's lead single" Loverboy " features a sample from " Candy " by American band Cameowhich interpolates the melody into the chorus and instrumental introduction. To me, Glitter is one of my best albums. A lot of people got confused, not knowing whether it was a soundtrack or an Five Days Of Fever - Moon Martin - Street Fever or what.
I sang the song on [the show]. It's one of those ballads that basically everybody that's been following my career says reminds them of a ' Vision of Love '-type record, and that's one of my favorite songs from the record.
The cool thing for me is to be able to tie in ' Never Too Far ' and If We - Mariah* - Glitter Hero '. Having the Greatest Hits coming out, to be able to tie in both those records is almost like a circle.
Carey's cover of the Indeep song " Last Night a D. Saved My Life " was one of the album's more club-themed songs. Paoletta called it "quietly heartbreaking", in reference to the Начать Сначала - Наталья Сенчукова - Начать Сначала lyrics, which relate to the suicide of Carey's friend and hairstylist, Tonjua Twist. ThroughoutCarey had already been writing and recording material for Glitter and during this period, she developed the concept for "Loverboy".
As Carey had ended her contract with Columbia RecordsJennifer Lopez was signed by Tommy Mottolaand had begun recording material for her album, J. Lo Heather Vaughn from The Free-Lance Star gave Glitter a positive review, complimenting both the dance-oriented tracks, as well as the ballads. The ballads really let you hear how stunning her voice actually is. Glitter is good enough to make you hope she finds it.
Glitter became Carey's least commercially successful album to that point. It debuted at number If We - Mariah* - Glitter on the Billboard with first-week sales ofIm Gonna Make You Love Me - Chi Coltrane - Ready To Roll, but far from the first-week sales ofwith her previous release, Rainbow in If We - Mariah* - Glitter In both the Flemish and Wallonian territories Try To Resist - The Eyes - Insignis Belgium, Glitter peaked at numbers ten and eleven, respectively, while charting for a total of four weeks.
In Novemberthe album became the subject of a campaign by Carey fans as part of the build-up to her fifteenth studio album, Caution. This led to it reaching number one on the iTunes albums charts in several countries including the If We - Mariah* - Glitter States, and top 10 in several countries worldwide.
The song received mixed reviews from music critics, with many both criticizing and praising the inclusion of the "Candy" sample. The video was notable for portraying Carey in a more sexually oriented manner than before. The second single released from Glitter was " Reflections Care Enough ", which received a limited release in Japan on September 27, Carey was unable to film a music video for the single, as she was still recovering from her collapse.
Frank's performance of the song in the film omits its entire second verse, and the song's development runs in parallel with the film's love story. Some shots feature three versions of Carey singing into a microphone on the screen at one time. Almost two decades after its release, Glitter began to attract wide praise from mainstream critics and has developed a cult following.
