"This is the gospel of my broken soul," Cannon — who recently announced he is expecting his 8th child — noted of the tune. "This is as raw as it gets."

In an ultimate ode to the Grammy Award winner, the song opens with a sample from Carey's 1990 hit "Love Takes Time." The lyrics then start off with Cannon singing, "First off, Imma say I ain't got nothin' but love for ya."

"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," the Drumline star sings, seemingly referring to the superstar's boyfriend, Brian Tanaka, whom Carey began dating in 2016.

"I'd been lyin' / 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 croons to Carey — who he married in 2008. The former flames were married for six years before they parted ways in 2014.

Then, The Nick Cannon Show star delivers a devastating truth. "But every time I need some love, I can't find it," he later continues. "This is a subtle reminder that I'm still undecided."

"As much as I want you back/ It's probably better where you at," Cannon belts out before addressing how he has multiple baby mamas. "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 about when I creep / You got a man next to you when you sleep."

Despite trying to move on with multiple women — whom he has welcomed seven children with collectively — it seems Carey will always have his heart.
