Nick Cannon seems to want that old thing back … his ex-wife, Mariah Carey.
Hot on the heels of announcing he’s expecting his 8th child, Cannon referenced Carey in his new song “Alone,” which dropped on Valentine’s Day.
The song is described specifically as “an ode to Mariah Carey” in a press release for the single.
The talk show host shared the song to Twitter and wrote: “This is for anybody else who is #ALONE on Valentines Day… I had to come Raw from the heart on this one.”

Not only does the track sample Carey’s 1990 single “Love Take Time,” but Cannon also includes some pretty emotional lyrics about his former wife.
“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 sings.
Cannon, also says while he wants to reunite with Carey, he knows she deserves better considering his latest baby drama.
“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.”
“Alone” is one of 12 tracks off Cannon’s forthcoming album, “Raw & B The Explicit Tape.”
Carey and Cannon were married from 2008 to 2016 and share twins Moroccan and daughter Monroe, 10.
The same day Cannon dropped his single, Carey posted a photo with her Valentine – son Moroccan.

She also posted another photo with boyfriend Bryan Tanaka with the caption: “Valentine’s marathon continues. Hour 23!”
In the selfie, Carey snuggles up to Tanaka rocking what appears to be a silk robe and night gown.

A source recently told PEOPLE Carey and Tanaka’s relationship is strong. “Mariah is really happy,” said the source. “He’s always doting on her and they have a great time together.”
“He’s also great with her kids,” the source added.
