I KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

In April 2003, Busta Rhymes and Mariah released a duet, called "I know what you want". This song was taken from Busta's album "It ain't safe no more". Business Write wrote about the track: "Winter just got hot now that hip-hop luminary Busta Rhymes and superstar Mariah Carey have teamed up on the explosive new song 'I know what you want'."

When Busta was asked why he chose Mariah for the track, when he could have had any diva he wanted, he said, "They went through a whole bunch of suggestions around, Split came up with suggestions, but ultimately the best was the one we didn't make, which was let's just see how, you know... let's just see who the best person would be to sing the part and it's without question that Mariah is one of the best singers period, hands down." Spliff Star from the Flip Mode Squad added, "She's viola, viola."

In the USA, it became Mariah's 22nd top 10 hit, solely on airplay. It was also a top 10 hit in many countries aroudn the world. A press release said it is a soft-rapped, delicate song with lush vocal parts provided by the one and only Mariah Carey. A slow funk groove and a host of guest raps make this a typically infectious Busta track. One for hip-hop fans and lovers alike. The video is a Busta spectacular, the movie style plot featuring a cameo performance from Ving Rhames.
