Product Overview

After closing out the 90's as the undisputed biggest-selling female recording artist of the decade--in excess of 150 million albums and singles have been sold worldwide--singer/ songwriter/ producer Mariah Carey unleashes Glitter, her eagerly awaited Virgin Records debut and first musical offering of the new millennium. Released in conjunction with her 80's-reminiscent motion picture debut of the same name, Glitter features 12 newly recorded tracks that run the musical gamut, from Mariah's highly stylized dramatic pop ballads to straight-up urban-oriented party tunes. Glitter also features some of Mariah's most stirring and emotive ballads, taken from the perspective of her sometimes-troubled character.

Looking to go down the vocal-diva-becomes-movie-star path blazed by Diana Ross, Madonna, and Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey teamed with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis to executive produce the soundtrack to her film debut. Keeping with her character Billie, a struggling 1980s singer trying to break into the biz via the club scene, Glitter has a handful of vintage dance covers given a modern twist. Chief among these interpretations are a vintage electro-funk reading of Cherrelle's "Didn't Mean to Turn You On" and a hip-shaking version of the underground classic "Funkin' for Jamaica," renamed "Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)," which features Mystikal's rough-neck rapping. Carey also represents her love of hip-hop with a groove-heavy remake of "Last Night a D.J. Saved My Life" featuring Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, and DJ Clue? Elsewhere, Billie's real-life alter ego rips through a number of ballads with her powerful pipes, including the piano-driven "Reflections (Care Enough)," the heartfelt "Lead the Way," and the show-stopping "Never Too Far." Carey's collaborations with Cameo (the pounding funk track "Loverboy"), Ja Rule and Nate Dogg (the loping reggae jam "If We"), and Eric Ben?t (the midtempo workout "Want You") also appear on this crossover project. ~ Rovi Staff

Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone ...a big step forward in terms of maturity for one of pop music's eternal kids... It's nowhere near unthinkable that Mariah, for all her success, is just now starting to get her music together. Wouldn't that be something?
Carol Cooper, VH1 ...easy feel and sparkling production..
