Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys invited Avril Lavigne to feature on his whiny anthem.
“What can I do to get you out of my life,” Carter sings in his new song “Get Over Me” which features Lavigne off his forthcoming record All American. Carter says their collaboration came about after touring together with the Backstreet Boys.
“She was into the idea, and she really liked it,” he told Bustle last month. “She liked the song that I had written, and she put her vocals on the song, and it was really cool.”
He adds, “it’s a really fun play on a couple. It’s like a crazy stalker guy, but then I’m calling her a crazy stalker girl,” Carter explained. “And we’re saying, ‘You need to get over me,’ and then she’s like, ‘No, you need to get over me.’ We’re giving our own stories of the situation that had gone down in the song.”
It’s the ode to ’90s nostalgia you didn’t know you needed.
