Music Video: Busta Rhymes – “Where I Belong” (featuring Mariah Carey)
This week, Busta Rhymes dropped a video for his new single, “Where I Belong” (featuring Mariah Carey). The song was recorded many years ago, and its video was actually filmed this week in 2017. Both song and video were kept in the vault for years, most likely due to delays in the release of its parent album, Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath of God, which dropped last October — seven years after it was first announced.
“Where I Belong” is clear in its attempts to recreate the magic of Busta and Mimi’s 2003 collabo, “I Know What You Want,” employing a similar call-and-response hook and similarly breathy vocals from Mariah. Rick Rock, who produced “I Know What You Want,” is back on production duty (along with Navi Beats).
The “Where I Belong” video is a sequel 18 years in the making, with Michael Jai White and Tae Heckard reprising their roles — and the latter looking as if time stood still. Check it out below.
