NEVER TOO FAR

The second single of the "Glitter" album, "Never too far", was released on September 24, 2001. Billboard Magazine writes about this single: "Virgin goes for the gusto with a shimmering ballad that showcases the singer/songwriter excelling at what made her a famous a decade ago: singing the hell out of a straight ahead love song free of gimmicks, gymnastics and self-conscious attempts at targeting any particular demographic."

In Europe and Australia, this single was a double A-side with "Don't stop (funkin' for Jamaica)". In Japan, "Reflections (care enough)" was released as the second single. In the USA, only "Loverboy" was released as a commercial single.

The video for this single was taken from the movie "Glitter". The record company wanted Mariah to film a new video, but having suffered a physical and emotional breakdown, Mariah had been in no condition to shoot a video.
