The unusual collaboration is destined for the soundtrack to the film 'All That Glitters'...
MARIAH CAREY has been working with funk soul maestro, one-time MOTOWN staff songwriter and the 80s hellraiser credited with inventing “punk-funk”, RICK JAMES, on her forthcoming soundtrack to the film ‘ALL THAT GLITTERS’.
James, who has served time in prison on cocaine charges and for imprisoning and assaulting a woman, contributes a track to the soundtrack for the film, which is being scored by Carey, and in which she co-stars with singer Eric Benet.
The ‘Glitter’ soundtrack will feature a host of guest stars, who Carey has said she will name nearer its August 21 release date, although she has confirmed that Janet Jackson‘s favoured team, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis have produced the majority of the album. Rap mix-tape kingpin DJ Clue has also produced the disco fave ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’, while Da Brat, Ludacris and 80s funksters Cameo bolster the set – with their re-working of the classic ‘Candy’.
