Aaron Carter’s New Music Is Low Key Killing It
Aaron Carter was one of the top teen heartthrob of the early millennium. If you didnâ€™t know every word to â€œAaronâ€™s Party (Come Get It)â€ or lose your mind when you saw him and Lizzie McGuire kiss under the mistletoe then, you probably werenâ€™t a 90â€™s baby.
For those of you that do recall the golden age, Aaron is making a major comeback with his new EP â€œLÃ¸VÃ«â€ and his single â€œSooner Or Laterâ€ that has over 45 million plays on Spotify.
We sat down with Mr. Carter to talk new music, his infamous love triangle with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan and whatâ€™s next for the singer.
You recently released new music for the first time in a little bit, how do you feel about all the positive feedback?
Itâ€™s great, itâ€™s so overwhelming. I just want to make people proud and be really good at what I do. You know, there is always going to be someone out there thatâ€™s better than you and as long as I feel like myself, as long as I have that in mind, it will keep me striving to be the best. Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with saying â€œI want to be the bestâ€ or â€œI am the bestâ€ because for me the best is like the sky. I will never be the best so I’m always aspiring to be the best, and to be better.
Whatâ€™s the biggest sound evolution from when you first released your demos to now?
My sound has changed, a lot. Iâ€™ve added a lot of more drum beats, synths, VST programs for making music, to make the quality for my music so much better. Iâ€™m a producer. I write my own music. I produce my own music. I constantly stay working, and listening to new music seeing whats poppinâ€™, seeing if someone is ahead of the game, things like that.
How do you want people to feel when they hear your new song â€œSooner Or Laterâ€?Â
I just want people to enjoy it, like really enjoy it. You know, there is a story to it but, it can relate to anyone who is feeling like they are going crazy in a relationship and they are doing so much for someone and they arenâ€™t getting anything back in return. Thatâ€™s what the song is about.
Who is the person that you feel is taking over the music industry and is your favorite to listen to?
Kap G is my favorite, heâ€™s killinâ€™ it. I would love to collaborate with him.
Okay, now let’s do some silly questions, whatâ€™s your funny Uber story?
I had an Uber driver take me 400 miles to a show from like SeattleÂ to Washington. It took 3 or 4 hours, and then he became my personal driver.
Is it true, you had a love triangleÂ with Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff?
Haha, that is absolutely NOT true. But itâ€™s crazy how long that rumor has been going around for.
Do you ever rock out to your old music?
No, I donâ€™t ever rock out to my own music, however every time I turn on my car the first song that plays off my phone is â€œAaronâ€™s Party (Come Get It)â€ Because it [starts with] A-A.
Last question, whatâ€™s next for you?
Just focusing on the music, you know thatâ€™s the key. Just working on my craft, perfecting everything. Doing lots of radio tours, and show. Iâ€™m going to be booking a lot of shows. International shows, too. I donâ€™t really stop. I donâ€™t really have a break right now but, I love it.
