Songfacts®:

  • This song is about Carey's overwhelming love for her twin children, Moroccan and Monroe (who turned 3 on April 30, 2014, the night of the album's announcement).

    The song opens with the voices of "Dembabies" a.k.a. Moroccan and Monroe, a.k.a. Roc 'N Roe. Speaking with Hot 97's Angie Martinez, Carey recalled, "I like to work in my home studio, which is one… not even a sliver the size of this studio," (referring to the Hot 97 space). "I'm talking about the corner. So I sit there, sing… and see dem babies - Roc and Roe."
  • Carey began working on her 14th studio album, Me. I Am Mariah...The Elusive Chanteuse, in 2010 but took a break when she found out she was pregnant. By the time the album dropped in 2014, a lot had changed in her personal and professional life. Not only was she a new mother to twins, but she was on the verge of separating from her husband, Nick Cannon, and preparing to leave her label, Def Jam.
