Nick Cannon will always have endless love for his ex-wife Mariah Carey.
Valentine’s Day? The Masked Singer host dropped his new track “Alone” that’s described as an ode to the five-time Grammy winner (ICYMI, the two, who share 10-year-old twins Moroccan and MonroeCannon split in 2014. Cannon declared in the press statement, “This gospel is my broken heart,” and that it was “as raw as it can get.”
After opening with a sample from Carey’s 1990 hit “Love Takes Time,” Cannon begins to bare all through his gut-wrenching lyrics. “First off, Imma say I ain’t got nothin’ but love for ya,” he sings. “Imma stay away, I ain’t tyrin’ to f–k it up for ya / Imma keep my distance, stay in my lane / Cause I know you got a man, it’s a little too late.”
However, it’s hard to imagine life without her. “I’d been lyin’ / I say I’m cool when I know I miss it,” Cannon belts out. “I would trade it all in for the case/If I could have your back/ If we could get back to our original point.”
“But every time I need some love, I can’t find it,” he later continues. This is my subtle reminder to myself that I am still unsure.
