“Boy (I Need You)” is a song by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey, taken from her ninth studio album, Charmbracelet. It was written by Mariah Carey, Justin Smith, Norman Whitfield and Cam’Ron, and produced by the former and Just Blaze. The song was released as the album’s second single on November 26, 2002. Initially, “The One” had been chosen as the second single from the album, however, halfway through the filming of a music video for it, the singer decided to release Boy (I Need You) instead. Considered by Mariah Carey as one of her favorites, the track is a reworked version of rapper Cam’Ron’s song “Oh Boy” released earlier that year.
