Love Somebody

Album: In a World Like This (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • Nick Carter and Howie Dorough wrote this tune with producer Jordan Omley, who also co-penned the title track to Backstreet Boys' This Is Us album. Carter told the story of the song to Radio.com: "Jordan had this idea, we came in and sat down with him. The one thing that I can do is I can write lyrics, I can write melodies and hooks. I'm an all encompassed person. So, we just sat down and banged it out."

    "He had this idea for a hook for 'Love Somebody,'" continued Carter, "and we relate to that so let's speak to it. We then came up with the first verse, second verse. It was a collaboration, that's what songwriting is, especially in the pop industry. It's fun to work with different producers that can give certain things. Different tastes and different feelings to each song."
