Mariah Carey’s fans are demanding justice for the pop diva’s soundtrack from her 2001 musical drama, “Glitter”.
On Wednesday, the soundtrack from the film, which became a cult favourite for fans despite it being a worldwide box office flop, appeared at No. 6 on the U.S. iTunes album chart and No. 2 on the soundtrack chart, falling closely behind “A Star Is Born” and beating out the “Bohemian Rhapsody” original soundtrack.
Ahead of the release of the singer’s 15th studio album Caution on Thursday, fans revealed on Twitter that they have been purchasing the Glitter soundtrack after reviewing Carey’s previous albums.
Sharing her excitement earlier Wednesday morning, Carey tweeted, “Not sure what’s happening, but I love it! The lambily is amazing at getting #JusticeForGlitter.”
The “Glitter” film, which marked the singer’s acting debut nearly two decades ago, was a commercial disaster largely due to the timing of its release on Sept. 21, 2001, just 10 days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
However, 17 years later, the star is finally seeing justice for the soundtrack. And on Wednesday, Carey announced the sale of tickets for her European Christmas Concerts.
