Charlie Puth, celebrates summer with his first solo release of the new year, “Girlfriend” –available now via Atlantic/Rumson Records. With infectious, soulful grooves, the song complements Puth’s signature falsetto. In true Charlie Puth fashion, “Girlfriend” is self-produced and co-written alongside longtime collaborator, J Kash (“Attention,” “How Long, “The Way I Am”).
“I am very bad at communicating, so most of the time, I just express my feelings in my music and ‘Girlfriend’ is an example of that. The song is about being persistent and letting someone know that your feelings for them aren’t going to just go away. But rather, they’re always going to be there, and you can’t sleep another night until you have that person by your side every day,” says Puth. “But it’s really intense to say all that out loud, so I just put it in a song to make it a little easier for myself.”
During the quarantine, Puth has participated in various live performances including Global Citizen & WHO’s #TogetherAtHome Concert, At Home With Apple Music, Jersey 4 Jersey Live, and more. He also joined forces with Katy Perry, as a guest mentor on her team, on American Idol. In addition, Puth’s Instagram has become a destination during quarantine for its creative and funny videos. Check out some of his recent posts including, “Baby Charlie”, an acapella version of Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage”, his “Quarantine Song”, and a showcase of some impressive new beats
