Singer Nick Merico On His Debut Single ‘Save Your Love’ [VIDEO EXCLUSIVE]
Nick Merico, the former Nickelodeon star, has just released brand new music, including his debut single “Save Your Love,” and he sat down to answer fan questions from uInterview.com’s users.
“Some of the emotions I felt during ‘Save Your Love’ were definitely heartbreak, some angst, and I definitely felt very proud of who I was,” said the 22-year-old Argentine former star of the series Every Witch Way. “I was able to let go of her. That’s a feeling that you’re just finally ready to move on.”
“When I was recording the video, I made sure we captured all those emotions, because it’s kind of a roller-coaster of emotions,” Merico added of the making of the music video for the song, a smooth, slow pop track.
Merico is set to release his single through a partnership with music label We Are Musik and UK-based digital distribution company AWAL. The young star began by releasing covers of his favorite songs and posting them on his YouTube channel, where he eventually compiled more than 18 million views.
Merico added that he also wants to return to acting, and teased one of his upcoming film projects.
“I will be branching out in my acting career,” he revealed. “I actually filmed a movie last November that should be coming out on Netflix later on this year, so more on that later.”
Merico said “Save Your Love” was inspired by a girl who told him she loved him despite not having seen him in many years.
“I was just like, ‘Save your love for something better than me,'” he explained. “That’s when the best songs are written, when it’s just something you feel in the spur of the moment.”
Merico also revealed the top three musicians he would most like to work with are three late legends of rock music: John Lennon, Freddy Mercury and Prince.
How did Merico first become involved with music? He said it was simply “natural” for him.
“When I was a young kid, I would hear something and then sing it back and harmonize to it,” he said. “I didn’t know what I was singing, but I knew that was something I’ve always loved to do.”
Merico said he plans to promote “Save Your Love” and his other music as much as possible in the coming months, particularly during the summer.
