About Glitter

Glitter is the soundtrack to the 2001 film of the same name and the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey, released on September 11, 2001 by Virgin Records. It was a complete musical departure from any of Carey's previous releases, focusing heavily on recreating a 1980s post-disco era to accompany the film, set in 1983. 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. The singer collaborated with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and DJ Clue, who co-produced the album. 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. Glitter featured several other musical acts such as Eric Benét, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, and Ja Rule.
