I think this is perhaps the worst album Mariah has made. Her voice is over engineered and she has become very commercial. I personally hate it when she does that hip-hop mess, I pray that she remains true to herself and takes some time to put the thought and heart back into her music. I miss her melodious tones and her beautiful voice.

Mariah Carey thought at first that she wanted to come back with a ballad but she really felt the energy and the heart of this song and thought it was nothing like she's ever released.

So she went with "Obsessed" her first single off of the then anticipated follow up to "E=MC2", "Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel".

It's an upbeat song about dissing someone who dissed her husband, her relationship and is "obsessed" with her for some odd reason.

"See right through you like you're bathing in windex" is one of the many insults she puts inside the song.

At first I wasn't sure about the song and didn't think much of it but it grew on me almost immensely and now I really do like it.

And thank goodness it wasn't played out nearly as much as a Beyonce song or a Lil' Wayne song!

Written by Mariah Carey, The-Dream and Christopher "Tricky" Stewart.

4 stars.

Mariah is best known for her ballads and this is no ballad. You wont hear any of her superior singing skills (which have been diminishing with time, maybe her vocal range is shortening due to straining on her vocal chords?)

This is a recommended song for someone who experienced a breakup (remember: they are obsessed with YOU, not you to them) a good workout song, and a nice dance hit.

The lyrics are standard for a R&B pop song. The song ends (if you have nice speakers with...) "you like me, you like me, you really really like me..." (cute).

My favorite lyrics:
You're a mom & pop, I'm a corporation
I'm the press conference, you're a conversation

Need I say more? :)

Obsessed! The song is about a guy who is obsessed with you and is just spreading all these rumors that are just not true. I love the digs she throws in the song "...you're a mom & pop, I'm corporation, I'm a press conference, you're a conversation...".

It's one of my guilty pleasures. I don't care how manly you are, this is a good cruising song. Can't go wrong with Mariah.

This is a playful song. It is not her greatest work. It was a bit immature to write such lyrics. I do listen to this while working out.
