Through the magic of online fan campaign, #JusticeforGlitter, Mariah Carey’s 2001 soundtrack album “Glitter” re-emerged into the charts, eventually topping iTunes album chart on Thursday, November 15, the eve of release of her latest studio album “Caution.”

“Not sure what’s happening but I love it! The lambily is amazing at getting #JusticeForGlitter,” Carey commented about the strange rise of the album at the charts.

Released for the film of the same name, the album was inspired by the 1980s disco era and was a huge departure for Carey in terms of style, featuring other artists such as Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, Ja Rule, Eric Benét and Fabolous. However, the album was critically panned upon release and became one of Carey’s least successful albums.

The album was originally released on an unfortunate date of September 11, 2001. The film, released a week after, received poor reviews and failed to get traction at the box-office.

The timing could not have been more perfect for Carey. Her upcoming fifteenth studio “Caution” is slated for release on Friday, November 15, 2018. Carey has also recently been nominated for the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
