Aaron Carpenter Is Really Going Through It On The Moody “Next”
Aaron Carpenter made the leap from social media sensation to pop star look easy with “Attitude.” The Justin Timberlake-channeling, R&B/pop song caught everyone’s attention, and he built on that momentum with the slinky “Chase.” The 20-year-old now showcases his versatility on “Next,” which is a little less pop and a whole lot more introspective. It finds our hero battling a nasty case of lovesickness over The Roommates’ mellow beats. “What am I supposed to do, I never wanted to be this close,” Aaron laments on the chorus.
“Now I’m here right next to you, I think I feel something maybe you don’t,” he sings. “You’re still talkin’ about him during your sleep, but when you touch me like that I can never leave.” It’s a real grower that will strike a chord with anyone going through it. Aaron is currently chipping away at his debut album. The rising star has been in the studio with a bunch of big names including Scott Harris, SG Lewis, Pop Wansel, Happy Perez and Mozella. While we wait for that to take shape, listen to “Next” below.
