New Track: Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez – ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’
Charlie Puth is finally ready to drop his debut album, ‘Nine Track Mind’, early next week after breaking out last year with his #1 hit single, ‘See You Again’ ft. Wiz Khalifa, and its follow up ‘Marvin Gaye’ ft. Meghan Trainor.
Charlie is obviously no stranger to a collaboration or two so he’s hooked up with Selena Gomez for the album track ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’. Curious to hear the song before the record drops?
The twosome have been hyping up this duet since the end of last year so it’s nice to be able to put into context the tiny snippets of the song they’ve shared. When speaking about his latest duet to MTV, Charlie revealed how he actually snagged the last minute assist from Selena on ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’.
I met up with Selena, and she went through a very public relationship, on and off, and she could just relate to the song and the lyrical sentiment. I was playing the song for her, and she just started singing the second verse. I got chills. I was like, ’Oh my gosh, that sounds so real. You need to sing on it.’ And she said yes.
As for the vibe on the song, ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ falls more in line with the sound found on Selena’s new album, ‘Revival’ – heavy on the tropical R&B influences. Selena and Charlie sound great together and the song’s hook is perhaps one of the catchiest we’ve heard in a while. By no means will it change the face of pop, but it’s a nice song that rides the breezy tropical house wave well and has a decent amount of hit potential. We smell a spring hit coming…
Would you be down with ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ becoming a single this spring?
