"Caroline" is the debut single by American hip hop recording artist Aminé. It was released on March 9, 2016 and was produced by Aminé himself and Pasqué.[1]

Background[edit]

In an interview with Genius, Aminé said that:

The first time I heard the name "Caroline" was in OutKast's "Roses", so that was definitely an influence on me in general. But I wrote this song with the intentions of hopefully making a modern day "Billie Jean". Caroline represents the handful of women I’ve met in my life that I would put genuine effort in..[2]

Music video[edit]

The song's accompanying music video premiered on June 1, 2016 on Aminé's Vevo account on YouTube. As of 23 February 2019, it has amassed nearly 250 million views.[3]
