Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys pays homage to his late brother Aaron Carter with his moving new solo song “Hurts to Love You.”

It really tugged at the heartstrings and it is filled with raw emotions. Carter maintains solid control over his rich, resonant voice, and anybody who has ever lost a loved one is bound to find it relatable and relevant.

“We all have someone in our lives that no matter what they do and how bad it hurts you still love them,” he said. “So I worked it out the best way I know how. In my 30 year career this is my most personal record to date. A story of unconditional love and heartbreak.”

The music video for his single may be seen below. It is a fitting tribute to Aaron, and it deserves to be enjoyed for its beauty, melancholy, and simplicity.

His brother, singer Aaron Carter, passed away on November 5, 2022, at the age of 34.

“Hurts to Love You” is available on Apple Music by clicking here.
