With new single “Pyro”, @AaronCarter is no fluke comeback king, and serves up more slick soulful pop/dance grooves


Just when you thought his 2017 EP LøVë was a one-shot fluke of a comeback for the man who sold millions as a pre-teen at the start of the last decade, the Aaron Carter story continues through his music with his newly released independent single called “Pyro”.  As with songs from LøVë like “Fool’s Gold” (delightfully remixed last year with hip hop singer 3letterznuk) , which were as on the mark as any other soulful pop/dance release two years ago, “Pyro” brings us a sophisticated, well-produced groove with interesting lyrics that will all resonate well alongside music by Bruno Mars or Sam Smith.  Aaron’s vocal glides along in his head voice most of the time, with some well-placed harmonies that reinforce the chorus of the song.  It’s time to dispense with so many of those preconceived notions and thoughts and let Aaron Carter’s music speak for itself.  And for those of you producers, remixers and vocalists who are interested in getting in on his music, he’s posted three instrumentals with which you can be creative, as free downloads at the link below.

Mixing it up with two recent duets with Florida’s @3letterznuk – “I Wonder” with NYC’s @MarcoFoster_, and a reboot of “Fool’s Gold” with @AaronCarter


AARON CARTER and 3LETTERZNUK, “Fool’s Gold” (remix)

I’m one for connecting the dots with music, and sometimes it takes me to interesting places whether in person or with the songs themselves. 

So I had got word that NYC’s rising and talented singer/songwriter Marco Foster – always on my radar – had a new song out called “I Wonder”.  It offers a sweeter-than-usual vocal by Marco that works in beautiful contrast to a fun rap by Florida’s 3letterznuk, newly signed to Sony.  Both styles come together to make the song really gel memorably. 

And in discovering this winning pairing, I found that 3letterznuk’s re-emergence on an earlier single this past summer latched on to another performer’s own re-branding  – fellow Floridian, Aaron Carter.  “Fool’s Gold” was initially released a few years ago and was included on Aaron’s first album in 16 years (and first as an adult!) called LØVË, released earlier this year.  A remix was an awfully good idea, letting 3letterznuk’s verses flow freely over the beginning of the song, allowing a segue for the lush production and a sincerely restrained and bright vocal by Aaron that has a lot of delightful breathy qualities about it too.  

Both “I Wonder” and the remix of “Fool’s Gold” happen to have 3letterznuk in common, but they’re true 2018 sleepers waiting for you to discover them.
