The stilettos are about to come off. Mariah Carey is firing back at a certain “Obsessed” rapper on her new single.
The pop diva may be giving Eminem a taste of his own medicine on “Obsessed,” the first single off her new album Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. Mariah and Eminem were rumored to have had a romantic relationship in the past. Since then, the rapper has made songs about their alleged affair, most recently on his new album Relapse (Bagpipes From Baghdad”). The “Touch My Body” songstress has remained relatively quiet about the topic until now, despite her husband Nick Cannon’s outspokenness.
The-Dream, who helped pen the new single, spoke to HipHopDX about the answer record. “I don’t think anybody is going to expect her to come out punching like she is going to come out,” he said. “It’s going to light the blogs up too because you don’t know who she talking about, what she talking about, but she talking about something. Mariah Carey has a record, and somebody’s going to be very upset.”
Mariah recorded a track called “Clown” for 2002’s Charmbracelet that addressed her relationship with Eminem. “You should have never intimated we were lovers/ When you know very well we never even touched each other,” she sang.
