“Alone,” one of the most anticipated songs of the year, was released yesterday by multi-talented entertainer Nick Cannon. In a sample of Mariah Carey’s hit song “Love Takes Time,” Nick expresses his feelings about the time he had with his ex-wife Mariah and the desire to get that old thing back. 

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,” Cannon sings. “As much as I want you back/It’s probably better where you at.”

Raw N B The Explicit Tape will feature a total of 12 R&B tracks, the second of which is titled “Alone.” The experience is “as raw as it gets” for Nick, who describes the endeavor as the “gospel” of his “broken soul.”
