Twister

Songfacts®:

  • This song was used in Mariah Carey's movie Glitter, but it was not written about her character, or anything that had to do with the movie. It was written for her friend and stylist, Tonjua Twist, who committed suicide in 2000. It was a difficult time for Mariah and this song is her tribute to Tonjua. >>
