Mariah Carey's 'Glitter' Is FINALLY Getting the Success It Deserves

17 years later the album has entered the top 10 on iTunes! #JusticeForGlitter

Although it sold over 2 million copies worldwide, pop legend Mariah Carey's 2001 release Glitter (the soundtrack to the critically-panned film of the same name), is considered to be one of pop music's biggest commercial letdowns. (Compared to her previous, top-charting albums, the record debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and the lead single "Loverboy" peaked at #2 on the Hot 100.)

A lot of factors contributed to the album's lackluster reception (like the unfortunate September 11 release date and the very public emotional breakdown Mimi was going through at the time), but 17 years later, it looks like Glitter is finally getting the recognition it deserves!

After not being availble on many music streaming platforms for years, the album was finally released on iTunes this week (just ahead of the release of her upcoming album Caution) and at the time of reporting, it was #3 on the Top 10 Albums chart! 

As expected, Lambs everywhere got excited, and the elusive chanteuse herself even took to Twitter to tweet about #JusticeForGlitter!

So what are you waiting for! Support a skinny pop legend and buy Glitter on iTunes
