Mariah Carey Writes a Song For Obama

Last night after everything was said and done, Barack Obama was President and Mariah Carey had a new song.

Producer Jermaine Dupri leaked word of the track on Twitter, letting fans know Mariah had written a song specifically for Obama.

The song “Bring It On Home” is a gospel-tinged anthem that pumps up the President’s ability to bring the American people together.

Mariah sings, “When it comes down to win or lose, don’t give up the fight. Because strength is what we need and love can save our lives.”

But Mariah wasn’t the only one writing music in honor of Obama.

Will.i.am also tweeted last night about a song he wrote for the President. This is the Black Eyed Pea’s second song dedicated to the President. The first was “It’s A New Day,” which was written before his historic win four years ago.
