Obsessed is an R&B hip hop song by American singer Mariah Carey, from her 2009 twelfth studio album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
Carey wrote the song with the production team of The–Dream and Tricky Stewart.
Island Records released the track as the album’s lead single on June 16, 2009, receiving generally positive reviews from music critics.
However, the song was the centre of controversy, as some critics and the media suggested Carey was aiming it at American rapper Eminem, who had negatively referenced her several times in songs.
After the song’s release, Eminem released a song titled The Warning in response.
Obsessed peaked at Number 7 on the US Billboard Hot 100 but reached Number 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs. It was also a top-ten entry in many other countries.
It has earned a platinum certification in the US and gold in Australia.
