Aaron Carter, the singer who broke out with the pop hit “Aaron Party (Come Get It)” in 2000 and tried to make a name for himself apart from his older brother Nick of the Backstreet Boys has died. He was 34 years old.
According to TMZ, law enforcement officials in Lancaster, Calif. (about 70 miles from Los Angeles) “received a 911 call at 11 a.m. Saturday that a man had drowned in the bathtub.” This man was later determined to be Aaron Carter, who was about a month away from his 35th birthday.
Aaron Carter released five albums during his career, including his most popular, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” from the 2000s, reaching No. 4 on the Billboard 200. In addition to the title track, it also featured a song titled “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” about beating Shaquille O’Neal in a basketball game (don’t worry, it was all just a dream). His latest album, ” Love”, was released in 2018.
Aaron Carter has also appeared in various movies and TV shows, mostly as himself, including Lizzie McGuire, Sabrina, the teenage witch and the reality series House of the Carters. Carter has also become, like so many other boppers before him, tabloid fodder, with gossip rags focusing on his drug addiction and his whistleblowing against getting the Covid-19 vaccine.
Many pop stars and journalists sent their condolences via social media, including New Kids on the Block, who tweeted, “We are shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Aaron Carter. Sending prayers to the Carter family. Rest in peace Aaron”while Jon Alba noted his influence on a certain generation, tweeting, “If you haven’t had the Aaron Carter experience with the fall of ‘Aaron’s Party’ back then, you’ve missed your chance. The essence of early 2000s pop culture.” The great Diane Warren took a more poignant approach:
While Aaron Carter never enjoyed the success of his older brother, Nick, his following in the early 2000s was undeniable.
