We’ve been waiting almost two decades to hear Busta Rhymes and Mariah Carey team up again and we can officially confirm that the wait has been worth our while with the release of ‘Where I Belong’ from the pair of superstars.
‘Where I Belong’ was dropped on Friday (American time) and is a follow up to their 2002 tune, ‘I Know What You Want’.
Busta announced the banger on social media.

Fans have unsurprisingly gone nuts over the announcement, with all sorts of emojis littering the comments section along with a lot of supportive comments.
“Busta is coming back wit that original music… 🔥 lets gooo,” said one fan.
One Twitter user even believes that the track is so iconic that Busta Rhyme’s should ‘NFT’ it.

The track picks up where “I Know What You Want” left off, with Busta and martial artist Michael Jai White attempting to rescue White’s wife who has been kidnapped by masked men.
The track is a delicious trip down a very nostalgic memory lane and is featured on the deluxe version of Busta Rhymes’ Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God .
It’s been a busy year of Mariah, who recently released a memoir titled, The Meaning of Mariah Carey. The memoir revealed very intimate details about Mariah’s family and both her brother and sister are reportedly suing the singer over it.
According to Page Six, Mariah’s sister Alison has filed a lawsuit against her for using, “her status as a public figure to attack her penniless sister, generating sensational headlines describing lurid claims to promote sales of her book.”
