The album reached the top of the charts before the launch of the singer’s new album Caution, when fans bought the album to support the hashtag #JusticeForGlitter.
Glitter the film was received poorly in the box office and reviews. According to Rotten Tomatoes, “Glitter is a hodgepodge of movie cliches and bad acting that’s sure to generate unintentional laughs. Unfortunately, the movie is not bad enough to be good.” The film followed Carey as Billie Frank, a talented singer struggling to find her true identity and voice.
Meanwhile, the album was Carey’s least successful album at the time. The album had the singles “Loverboy,” “Never Too Far,” “Don’t Stop (Funkin’ 4 Jamaica),” and “Reflections (Care Enough).”
Now, justice has been served and it’s on top of the charts!
