Nick’s Song Cries Out For Ex-Wife Mariah Carey
On Valentine’s Day, talk show host Nick Cannon dropped a new track called “Alone” on social media from his upcoming mixtape titled Raw N B: The Explicit Tape.
The song is an ode to his chart-topping ex-wife Mariah Carey and explores his emotions in the aftermath of their divorce, according to a press release sent to People.
Cannon sampled Carey’s love song “Love Takes Time,” singing in his song, “First off, I’m gonna say I ain’t got nothing but love for ya. Nothing but love/Imma stay away, I ain’t trying to f**k it up for ya/I keep my distance, stay in my lane/Cause I know you got a man, it’s a little too late.”
“As much as I want you back/ It’s probably better where you at/Cause I’m still running the streets/ I’m still all in the sheets/ Having babies, models and singers and actresses saying they pregnant by me/Have to pay $10,000 a week, I take care of my peeps/Now you don’t worry when I creep/You got a man next to you when you sleep,” he continues.
Cannon posted a snippet of the song on his Twitter page with the caption, “This is for anybody else who is #ALONE on Valentines Day… I had to come Raw from the heart on this one. #Broken #Shattered #Toxic #RAW&B #Alone.”
Cannon and Carey, who married in 2008 and split in 2014, are parents to 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
After the divorce, Carey dated and became engaged to Australian billionaire and businessman James Packer before she started dating her current boyfriend Brian Tanaka, a former backup dancer.
Cannon, 41, said he’s laying out all his emotions in his new music in an interview with E News.
“To really cry out for my soul on a lot of these records, it really has been a therapeutic process for me,”
