As Cannon readies the release of “Raw N B: The Explicit Tape” this week, he speaks about Carey’s reaction and penning lyrics about the women in his life.
The two superstars share 10-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe, and Cannon has recently revealed what Carey thought of the track. He told E! News that despite reports, “Alone” wasn’t an effort to “get Mariah back.”

“I heard through my kids that she knew about it,” Cannon told the outlet. “They were like ‘Dad, you wrote a song about Mom?’ I was like, ‘Um, not necessarily.'” He went on to describe the singer as “a queen on another frequency,” adding that Carey “didn’t say anything negative” about the song when they’ve spoken.
“We talk every day,” he said. “We keep our conversations about family and positive things.” Cannon explained that the song’s message was: “Let me gracefully bow out and thank you for the love.”
Raw N B: The Explicit Tape will reportedly showcase Cannon speaking on the women in his life—and with eight kids and five mothers, not including his rumored romances with his exes, Cannon has quite a bit to talk about. “They know me and they are like, ‘Oh, here he goes again.’ Everybody’s so supportive and so loving, especially when it comes to art. I’m not intentionally trying to be a messy individual or anything, but one has to speak their truth and one has to be authentic.”
