“This is the hardest song I’ve ever had to put together”


Charlie Puth has built a brand on being the goofy, creative songwriter/producer who likes to have a good time. In fact, his recent song “Light Switch” was partially created while experimenting with sound for a TikTok video.

But now Puth fans are seeing a different, more vulnerable side of the singer.

In an Instagram post, Puth explained that his next outing was inspired by a “difficult” time in his life when he went through a tough breakup. Puth choked up as he explained the emotion behind the upcoming song titled “It’s hilarious.”

“He just rears his ugly head every time – sorry – every time I hear it,” Puth said amid a surge of emotion. “I’m also really glad you heard it too because I just heard the master, but it took me back to 2019, which was the worst fucking year of my life.”

“I never told people what happened to me and the pain I went through during the worst breakup of my life in 2019,” he continued. “I just wanted to throw it under the rug and start over and surround myself with better people.”

Then, in an attempt to bring some humor into the ad, he said, “I don’t make stupid videos like this, I make videos like ‘What if there was a sound like this one? “”

The subject still hung heavy on Puth, however, and he concluded on a grateful note for his fans. “It’s the hardest song I’ve ever had to compose and I’m so excited for you to hear it,” he said. “So thanks.”
