Addicted

Album: I'm Taking Off (2011)
  • Carter has admitted to struggles with drug and alcohol addiction in his younger days. AOL Music asked him if these past battles inspired this track? He replied: "I've done my share of drugs and alcohol, but I've come to find that love is extremely addicting and probably the biggest drug in the world out of all of them. At the same time, it's the healthiest drug. So yes, it was inspired by my experiences and things I'm going through right now."
