The Glamorous Life was the first single to be released from Sheila E.’s first album The Glamorous Life, marking the first release of any kind to be credited to Sheila E. It was released four weeks prior to the album. The a-side was an edit of the track, with the b-side, The Glamorous Life Part II a continuation. The Glamorous Life featured Prince as a writer, producer and performer, although his input was uncredited.

The single reached number 7 on the US Billboard Pop Chart (marking her highest ever position on this chart), and number 9 on the Billboard Black Chart. It remained 2 weeks at position 1 in the Billboard Dance/Disco Top 80 chart, becoming the second associated artist single to top this chart, after Nasty Girl single in September 1982.
