Relationships are like prescription drugs – they always have side effects. No, that wasn’t an attempt at humor. Rather, it was an educated comparison based solely on Mariah Carey’s newest feature inside our Booth: a remixed version of the Jeezy-assisted Side Effects, which now boasts a new middle verse, compliments of Busta Rhymes. Over an uncomplicated, synthesized production from Scott Storch, Carey describes the problems she has encountered as a direct result of her past relationships. Blaming youth, inexperience and men, Carey seems strung up on her past, but Rhymes plows through the door and reminds the newlywed to forget the past and focus on the future. There is no word on whether or not Side Effects will officially be released as the next single from Carey’s platinum-plus album, E=MC².
Note: The streaming of “Side Effects (Remix)” has temporarily been suspended.
