Description

As a concept album of the sounds of the early 1980s, Glitter features contributions from dominant figures of the period: Rick James wrote "All My Life", Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis reworked their song "Didn't Mean to Turn You On" and wrote with Carey the retro track "Want You", and Cameo are featured on lead single "Loverboy". The album also includes collaboratons with rappers Busta Rhymes, Mystikal, Da Brat, Ludacris, Fabolous, Ja Rule and Nate Dogg.

Critical and commercial reception

The album was released shortly before the film Glitter, and both album and film were critical and commercial failures, although Rob Sheffield gave the album a three star review in Rolling Stone, writing, "damn if Glitter isn't a big step forward in terms of maturity for one of pop music's eternal kids."[2] However, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of allmusic was less kind, giving the album 1.5 of 5 stars; he called it "an embarrassment" and "an utter meltdown — the pop equivalent of Chernobyl." Carey attributed the low sales of the album to its release coinciding with the September 11 attacks, saying in an interview, "The talk shows needed something to distract from 9/11. I became a punching bag. They tore me down because my album was at number 2 instead of number 1 [a reference to the peak position of the single "Loverboy", and not to the album]. The media was laughing at me and attacked me."[3]

The album debuted at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Top Soundtracks chart,[4] staying at the top for three weeks, and at number 7 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling 116,000 copies in its first week of release,[5] but it had a substantial slide: it remained in the top twenty for two weeks and on the chart itself for twelve weeks. Glitter was certified platinum by the RIAA in October 2001, and as of October 2007, it had sold just 636,000 copies in the United States.[6][7] The soundtrack peaked at number-one in Japan, and was certified gold in Switzerland.[8]

Lead single "Loverboy" peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100; after the song stalled at a low position on the chart, Virgin Records reduced the price of the single.[9] The two follow-up singles, "Never Too Far" and "Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)", became Carey's first singles not to chart on the Hot 100. A music video was filmed for a fourth single, "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life", but it was not officially released after Virgin Records ceased promotion of the album and paid Carey to leave the label.

The song "If We" was later re-worked by Damizza and released as a single titled "What Would You Do" with Butch Cassidy, Nate Dogg and Carey in 2004. Conflict between Damizza and Shade Sheist led Damizza to recruit Cassidy to replace Sheist on the single version. Sheist retaliated with his own remix titled "G-Mix", which is a re-worked version featuring Nune and Carey. "What Would You Do" failed to make the Hot 100 and received minimal airplay in Europe.

In 2002 for the 44th Grammy Award ceremony, the Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis productions of the songs "Never Too Far", "Twister" and "Didn't Mean to Turn You On" were nominated for Grammy Award for Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, but lost to T-Bone Burnett's Down from the Mountain: Live Concert Performances by the Artists & Musicians of O Brother, Where Art Thou?, O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Fan Dance.[10]

"Lead the Way" has gone on to become a fan favorite, and is known for a 18 second long belt toward the end of the song.
