“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…”
On Feb. 14, the 41-year-old daytime talk show host debuted a new love song dedicated to his ex-wife, Mariah Carey, and judging by some of the lyrics, it appears as though he might be missing the romance they once shared.
In the new track which is called “Alone,” Cannon pines for the R&B diva, reminiscing on their relationship. The song also samples Carey’s 1990 classic “Love Takes Time.”
The former America’s Got Talent host shared the new tune across social media just in time for Valentine’s Day.
“This is for anybody else who is #ALONE on Valentine’s Day…,” he wrote. “I had to come Raw from the heart on this one,” the actor and comedian added, including a few emotional hashtags along with his caption that read:
“#Broken #Shattered #Toxic #RAW&B #Alone.”
Dang Nick, it’s like that?!
In one part of the song, Cannon sings about getting back together with the 52-year-old hitmaker.
“I say I’m cool when I know I miss it/ I’d trade it all for the case/ If I could have you back/ If I could go back to where we started at,” he croons.
However, later on in the track, the Wild ‘N Out creator admits that Mariah is probably better off where she is with her longtime boo Bryan Tanaka. The singer has been quietly dating the 38-year-old backup dancer since her split from James Packer in 2016, according to PEOPLE.
Cannon confesses on the song:
“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.”
