Is Nick Cannon trying to get back together with Mariah Carey?

On Valentine’s Day, the singer/TV personality dropped what’s being described as an “ode” to his famous ex — a track called “Alone,” which samples Mariah’s 1990 ballad, “Love Takes Time.”

Nick sings about having “nothing but love” for his ex but he knows it’s “a little too late,” so he’s keeping his distance.

“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,” Nick sings. “Have to pay $10,000 a week, I take care of my peeps/Now you don’t worry when I creep/You got a man next to you when you sleep.”

Nick and Mariah were married from 2008 to 2014 and share 10-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan. As he references in the lyrics, Nick has gone on to father children with various different women. He recently announced he’s expecting his eighth child, with model Bre Tiesi.

“Alone” will be featured on Nick’s new mixtape, Raw N B The Explicit Tape, coming February 18.
