PRETTYMUCH Get Serious About Loving You on Sultry Ballad 'Open Arms'
PRETTYMUCH, Simon Cowell's latest boy band up dropped their latest song on Friday (Oct. 27), the sultry ballad "Open Arms". The track has the group -- Nick Mara, Brandon Arreaga, Zion Kuwonu, Austin Porter and Edwin Honoret -- showing off their a cappella skills for the minute before an R&B beat drops in to compliment their lovesick lyrics and da-da-um-da-eh vocalizations.
Lead vocals alternate cohesively throughout the song between the five men with these lyrics closing off the a cappela section: "Got that key to your heart / Scrape my knees on the pavement / Here with open arms / So when you're ready you know where to find me."
Previously, they have released the songs "Would You Mind" (June 21) and "Teacher" (Sept. 28).
Earlier this month, Arreaga told Billboard that "Something to expect in the future is the diversity from song to song, video to video, person to person. We’re going to continue to switch it up, but at the end of the day, it’s still all going to make sense because it’s all going to be PRETTYMUCH." And they definitely switched it up with "Open Arms," a much more serious and mature sounding track than anything we've heard from them so far.
Three of the boys took to their individual Twitters to express their excitement about the tune.
