Cameroonian American singer, songwriter and rapper Carter Ace has shared the music video for his new single “Me Sometimes,” which appears on his 2021 EP, The One And Loney via Let’s Get It Records/Republic Records.
The clip opens on a closeup of Carter as he raps directly to the camera. His first line, “I wish I wasn’t me sometimes,” cuts deep as he examines his own anxiety, self-doubt, and mental health in the ensuing bars. Uplifted by guitar and an off-kilter funk groove, the action on-screen ebbs and flows with the song as his expressions emanate raw emotion.
Right out of the gate, The One And Lonely received millions of streams and garnered critical acclaim. OnesToWatch predicted the title track “may just be the breakout track he’s been waiting to put out into the world,” and Foolish Ambition praised, “the 5 track ep takes you on a journey of love, freedom and everything of that nature.” In support of the EP, he wowed audiences on tour with Jonas Brothers.
However, it just sets the stage for much more to come from Carter Ace in 2022.
Rising up out of the San Fernando Valley, Carter Ace initially incited waves through the culture with If It Don’t Work in 2017. A year later, he served up “I Think I’m Normal” with production by Isom Innis of Foster The People. It notably eclipsed 3.4 million Spotify streams as he buzzed to the forefront of the conversation with features in GQ and Flaunt. Joe Jonas heard his music and immediately reached out, signing him to Let’s Get It Records in conjunction with Republic Records. In 2022, Carter has much more music to come. Get ready!
