Aston Merrygold has unveiled his first video for his debut solo single “Get Stupid”.
The track is taken from his debut solo album “Show Stopper” which is set for release in October and will follow on from the July 17 drop of the single. “Get Stupid is a phrase that people are going to hear and at first not really understand it,” explains Aston. “In my thinking get stupid means be free, get loose and when five o’clock hits and people are finishing work, it’s time to get stupid and let your hair down. That’s when a lot of people come alive,” he added.
“Get Stupid” has similarities to the huge Bruno Mars hit “Uptown Funk”, which is a great song to have your new single compared to considering its long lasting stay at Number One early this year. Merrygold’s debut track also has a reference of a Michael Jackson style and even has a cool, hip Motown vibe to it. All in all with think Aston may have a huge hit on his hands with this upbeat number and we can’t wait to hear the whole album!
