Unfortunately, though, Ari and Nick’s characters are — spoiler alert! — maybe, probably deceased (still not sure what’s up with Boone, tbh). Which leaves us wondering… how is the rest of the cast coping without their two angel-voiced comrades?!
Well, as it turns out, there’s another mega-talented musician roaming the Wallace University set: Diego Boneta, a.k.a. our fave mysterious barista and Grace’s maybe boyf, Pete Martinez.
When he’s not serving up trenta, no-foam, five shot, half-caf, no foam pumpkin spice lattes with no foam at 210 degrees as Pete, the 24-year-old actor is working on his impressive music career (he already has two albums under his belt): 2005’s Diego and 2008’s Indigo). On Friday (Oct. 23), he gave fans the first taste of his upcoming bilingual EP with the song “The Hurt.”
The retro pop-rock tune has a bit of a Black Keys vibe with its irresistible, in-your-face groove and slightly distorted vocals, as Boneta belts, “I don’t want love, I don’t want love/ I want the hurt.” This one’s a toe-tapping jam, for sure.
In a statement via Just Jared, Boneta said, “I am ecstatic to be releasing ‘The Hurt.’ Music has always been a passion for me and I cannot wait to share with my fans my five other singles, which are very different from each other.”
He also added that two of the EP’s songs will be sung in Spanish, which is something “very important” to him. “Most of the movies and TV shows I have been part of are in English but I am also proud to be Mexican and I want to represent my country and my roots through my music.”
Suffice to say, we'll be eagerly awaiting more tunes for Boneta -- that is, if he doesn't fall victim to the Red Devil before then.
