Single Review: Charlie Puth releases ‘Attention’



Not to be outdone by his North American tour buddy Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth released a brand new single. But unlikely Shawn, Charlie just released it on it’s on and not a part of an album that is already out. See how that makes more sense?

“Attention” is a single pretty much makes you want to dance. It’s the first single off his second album. It’s not titled yet. The song is catchy. The lyrics are something that I wouldn’t have expected from him. The song is about getting played by an ex and that she didn’t want to date him. Pretty much, she was using him because she wanted the D.  This is very adult. It’s a welcome change. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that his next album will be his “sexual awakening album.”

His vocals are great. Before he gets to the climax of the song, you can hear his voice crack a little bit with emotion. That is most people don’t put into their music these days. It shows his vocals raw and I don’t know about you, but raw vocals are always better than overproduced/perfect ones. They just flow so nicely with the bass line that is through the entire song. Like, you can feel that bass in your bones. It’s all about that bass, no treble. I also really liked how they add more to the bass as the song progressed and then kept the chorus simple.

There really isn’t that much bad about the song. The only thing that I wish was that the climax was felt more like the end of the song and not just a continuation of what we had before. Sure, the cracking of his vocals was a nice touch but other than that, it was just the same. It’s an amazing song that will probably be another summer hit that I’m predicting now in April. I’ve predicted that a lot of songs will be summer hits, one of them is bound to be right.

Overall, It’s an amazing song that is sung very well and produced like a boss. Besides the lack of change in the climax of the song, it’s a very catchy song that will do amazing in the charts.
