AceShowbiz - %cCharlie Puth% debuts a music video in support of his latest single called "How Long". The 25-year-old singer/singwriter shows off his dance moves in the video. Wearing a suit with gleaming shoes, he defies the odds as he climbs the wall while dancing to the pop-funk beat and continues his solo party on the roof of a skyscraper.
While the music is upbeat, the lyrics are remorseful. He sings about apologizing to his girlfriend for "actin' so shady" and "creepin' 'round" on her, "I'll admit, I was wrong, what else can I say, girl? /Can't you blame my head and not my heart? /I was drunk, I was gone, that don't make it right, but /Promise there were no feelings involved."
The single is recorded for his upcoming second studio album "Voicenotes". Released earlier this month, it became the most-added song at Pop Radio. "To all of my friends at radio, thank you for making this happen and thank you for believing in me. And thank you to the fans," he wrote on Instagram to express his gratitude.
"Voicenotes" is named after an actual app. "The reason why is because every song - I produced the whole album - every song came about from the VoiceNotes app on my iPhone," Charlie revealed during his visit to NBC's breakfast show "Today".
"I'm not really good at writing down music, I just have it in my head and it needs to be immediate for it to work, so when I came up with 'Attention', I was on this train in Tokyo and... I had this in my head and I couldn't get my laptop and make the beat real quick, so I just (beatbox)," he explained. "I wanted it to be this like, kind of disco-y thing, and then I went back to my hotel and made the beat and listened back to the Voice Note."
