Music lovers, Charlie Puth wants your attention!
The “See You Again” singer has dropped his latest single, titled “Attention” – the first single off his upcoming untitled sophomore album.
To promote his new single, a place called “The Attention Room” was established in Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles. At the launch, the Grammy-nominated musician said that he is not one to look for any unnecessary attention on social media.
“We’re in a world of Facebook and Instagram. If you get a ‘like’, you get this rush of dopamine to your mind. Social media is important, but we should venture out a little bit and not rely on it for self approval,” he explained.
Besides that, he also shared that his past relationships didn’t work out because “he wasn’t ready to fully commit”. He continued, “Maybe at that time, I couldn’t give it all to them because I focused on my career. There are a lot of different takes.”
Charlie’s new track is about an attention-hungry girl who has been “running around throwing dirt” on his name. “You just want attention/ You don’t want my heart/ Maybe you just hate the thought of me with someone new/ Yeah you just want attention/ I knew from the start/ You’re just making sure I’m never gettin’ over you,” he sings.
