Future Hit: Aaron Carpenter’s “Attitude” Is A Soulful Pop Surprise
Aaron Carpenter makes the leap from social media sensation to pop star look easy with “Attitude.” Co-written with heavy-hitters Scott Harris, Chad Hugo and SG Lewis, the 20-year-old’s debut single is an instantly catchy R&B-pop anthem that evokes early Justin Timberlake. “What you standing over there for, come and meet me on the dance floor,” the newcomer sings cockily over a chunky bass line and percussion. “I can see you with your hands on me, yeah I know you got a thing for me.”
He then shows off an impressive falsetto on the chorus. “Something about your attitude, yeah baby you know I’m mad for you,” Aaron croons. “There’s something about your attitude that makes me wanna stay the night.” Instead of jumping straight into music after finding social media fame as a founding member of MAGCON (the tour that launched Shawn Mendes and Jack & Jack), the Shreveport, LA native spent a couple of year learning his craft and discovering his own musical identity. It’s an investment that pays off with “Attitude.” Listen below.
