Charlie Puth gives us a little taste of his upcoming debut album ‘Charlie‘ with the new single ‘That’s Hilarious’
The new single “That’s Hilarious,” produced by Puth and co-written with longtime collaborator JKash, deeply shares the pain of feeling betrayed by a breakup with Puth’s emotional and charring vocals and lyrics. The song is from his forthcoming album entitled CHARLIE, due out later this year, and it is his most personal work yet.
Charlie shared the poignant journey of how “That’s Hilarious” was inspired by a painful breakup he experienced to his 16 million fans on TikTok.
Charlie says: “I’m really excited for the song to come out, but every time I hear it, I’m kind of brought back to a time that was really, really challenging in my life,” “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 start over and surround myself with better people. But this is the hardest song that I ever had to put together, and I’m so excited for you to hear it.”
The highly-anticipated, critically-acclaimed single hit #1 on the Apple iTunes Pop Chart and has garnered over 211 million streams globally and more than 50 million YouTube video views to date. Puth recently appeared and performed “Light Switch” on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE and the iHeart Awards, where he did a special fan-favorite dueling piano performance with EGOT John Legend. Puth will next appear and perform on ELLEN on Wednesday, April 13
Puth co-wrote and produced The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber’s record-breaking single, “Stay,” which quickly become one of the biggest songs of 2021 and holds the title for the longest-reigning No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart and the first to lead it for double-digits – spending a total of eleven weeks at the top of the chart. Puth’s 2020 collaboration with Gabby Barrett on their “I Hope” Remix earned him his fourth top 10 track on the Billboard Hot 100, hit number one on the Billboard “Adult Pop Songs” chart, and won a 2021 Billboard Music Award for “Top Collaboration.” His 2018 GRAMMY-nominated LP, Voicenotes, was RIAA Certified Gold only four days after its release and has logged over 5.6 billion streams worldwide.
