Charlie Puth in the news
Singer Charlie Puth says his new single was inspired by the “worst year” of his life and an incredibly difficult breakup.
The 30-year-old pop star announced his new single ‘That’s Hilarious’ and said that he based it on a breakup which happened during a particularly tough 2019, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Charlie Puth said: “It just rears its ugly head every time-sorry-every time that I hear it. I’m also really excited for you to hear it as well, because I just heard the master, but it just brought me back to 2019, which was the f****** worst year of my life.”
The ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ hitmaker went on to explain that although Charlie Puth e had never opened up about it at the time he had gone through the “worst breakup” of his life that year and had initially wanted to forget all about it before using it as inspiration for his music.
Speaking in a video posted to Instagram, Charlie Puth said: “I never told people what happened to me and the pain that I went through going through the worst breakup of my life in 2019. I just wanted to throw it under the carpet and just start over and surround myself with better people.”
Charlie Puth did not reveal who the song was about, although he was reportedly dating fellow singer Charlotte Lawrence during 2019 and is also thought to have been previously linked to pop star Selena Gomez and actress Halston Sage, but claimed that the song is the “hardest” he has ever had to write.
Charlie Puth concluded: “This is the hardest song that I’ve ever had to put together and I’m so excited for you to hear it. So thank you.”
Who is Charlie Puth
Charles Otto “Charlie” Puth is a popular American pop singer and songwriter. He started gaining fame by posting his original songs and covers to his YouTube channel. After his talents were exposed to the world he was signed in by Ellen DeGeneres for a record label, which led to the start of his official career.
His debut studio album was released in January 2016 by the American record label Atlantic Records. Even though it received negative reviews from critics it peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 published by the ‘Billboard’ magazine. A deluxe edition was also released in November which contained three additional songs.
Puth wrote, co-produced as well as sang the hook on Wiz Khalifa’s hip-hop anthem ‘See You Again,’ included in the soundtrack of the motion picture ‘Furious 7.’ It became a huge hit, reaching the No. 1 spot in nearly 90 countries worldwide.

For a singer with so many accomplishments, Charlie Puth is definitely not considered “general.”
Due to lack of publicity and promotions, also due to employment of poor publicist can leave an artist with limited limelight.
As his fans know, Charlie Puth is self sufficient, evident from his social media posts which are mostly unfiltered. His habit goes to an extent that he has been recording his albums at home. He’s just two years old in mainstream music industry.
Apart from that, fans start losing interest in an artist when there’s is a long gap between albums. Puth released Nine Track Mind in January 2016, and since then, he has been out of spotlight until he released Attention this year. When fans dont get new stuff, they can only chew the old one for so long. Slowly the interest dies. The hype only sustains if there is something worth tapping into. When singers alleged link ups and bar brawls surface, they keep themselves under constant media & thus public’s scrutiny. As it’s been a well knows fact, everything’s fair when it comes to creating public image. The artists utilizes every option to keep that coming.
So yeah, some artist are underrated, and good music can’t always make them popular, its what they can do apart from that to get maximum crowd.
Justin Bieber hasn’t been always so positively received by crowd. In his starting years, he was heavily criticized from his looks to his voice. Agree or not, it was the plus point for him either way. Girls like him and gradually, he improved his image. What he is now, is a result of years of hard work and persistence, no matter what people said.
Everyone gets what they plan on from day one. It’s their daily choice that shapes them. If Charlie Puth wishes, he can be linked in scandals, but he chose to keep his personal life private. Fans always tend to dig that, but when the artist doesn’t open up about that, fans divert their attention on their music.
It’s a long road of patience, and with consistency, he will be someday on top, a long way ahead of what he is today. In my views, this is the appropriate way.
