With President Barack Obama's re-election last night, his supporters in the music community are celebrating the best way they know how — by making new music. Mariah Carey, a longtime Obama supporter, released a new song last night in tribute to the president's victory.

The song, "Bring It Home," was produced by Jermaine Dupri and originally performed at a fundraiser for Obama over the summer. On the track, the pop diva and American Idol judge encourages unity and strength in the face of adversity.

“Congratulations to our beloved President Barack Obama, our spectacular First Lady Michelle Obama & the adorable Malia & Sasha," Carey wrote on Twitter in reaction to the night's news. "We love you!”

Also with new music commemorating the president's accomplishment is Young Jeezy, who followed up on his 2008 hit "My President" with the new banger "We Done It Again." Just as Obama's second campaign was more down-to-earth than his idealistic first, Jeezy's take two has a more solemn tone as he addresses the hardships faced by those living in poverty and the damage done by the financial crisis.

"It's us against the world, we playin' to win," he rhymes, taking on an air of defiance. "We done it again."
