LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA: Two months after the death of Aaron Carter, Nick Carter has released a music video 'Hurts to Love You' to pay tribute to his late brother. In the song, he spoke of how he hoped his little brother living his happily led life in this world. Aaron, 34, was found dead at his home in Lancaster, California on November 5.
In his track, Nick sings, “Always hoped your tomorrows / Would be better than the days before / I hoped you’d find your road to follow / To a place you were happy in this world," and further explained that he still loves Aaron even though it "hurts to love" him. “Miss you with all my heart, you know I always will / I always prayed for peace my soul could feel/ It’s hard to let go of the anger / I know for me it took some time / Sometimes the darkness lasts forever / Feels like the light won’t ever shine.”
A preview of the music video dedicated to his late brother was shared by the singer on Instagram, which featured childhood pictures of the brothers. “We all have someone in our lives that no matter what they do and how bad it hurts you still love them. So I worked it out the best way I know how,” he captioned the post.
With toxicology results pending, the 'I Want Candy' singer's official cause of death has not yet been determined. Despite their turbulent relationship, Nick expressed his grief at the loss of his brother and shared an emotional post on Instagram at the time. Sharing a carousel of images of the brothers together over the years, the 42-year-old singer wrote, “My heart has been broken today. Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded.”
Nick added that he hoped his little brother would “someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed,” and mentioned that addiction and mental illness was the “real villain.”
The 'Backstreet Boys' member concluded the post by writing, “I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz., now you get a chance to finally have some peace you could never find here on earth….God, Please take care of my baby brother.”
Aaron is survived by his son Prince. He shared his one-year-old son with fiancée Melanie Martin.
