Mariah Carey’s Glitter soundtrack has re-entered the iTunes charts

“Mariah Carey did more for music with the soundtrack to Glitter than The Beatles ever did during their respective careers”

November 14, 2018

Mariah Carey is having a great month. Not only did the pop icon's seasonal hit, "All I Want For Christmas Is You," re-enter the iTunes charts two weeks ago, but now, the soundtrack from her highly underrated film, Glitter, just re-entered the charts as well.

The soundtrack's sudden surge in popularity was spearheaded by Carey's stans, who started a trend on Twitter earlier today with the hashtag, #JusticeForGlitter. In response, Carey thanked her fans on the social platform, who she refers to as her lambs or lambily, writing, "Not sure what's happening but I love it! The lambily is great at getting #JusticeForGlitter."

The film, which debuted in 2001, got very poor reviews on Rotten Tomatoes but was considered a cult classic for many. The film's soundtrack ended up not doing well either, which many (including Carey) chalked up to the fact that it unfortunately came out on 9/11.

The Glitter soundtrack is currently No. 2 on the US iTunes charts, and, according to Paper, is also trending in other countries including Italy, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, and Australia. You can see some of Carey's responses to fans below, and be sure to be on the lookout for her new album, Caution, which is due out this Friday.
