Charlie Puth Teases New Single, ‘Girlfriend’

On the list of new releases is none other than Charlie Puth, in with his brand new single. The artist recently surfaced with news of his upcoming single titled, ‘Girlfriend’. Oh but here’s the best part, we won’t have to wait long to get a peek at it. ‘Girlfriend’ is set to drop this Thursday, the 25th. 

Honestly, Charlie should’ve warned us earlier, there’s no way we can prepare ourselves for this one. The star took to Instagram to break the news, with a rather steamy picture of the cover art. 

We see the text ‘Girlfriend’ scribbled in a sunny yellow, against a bright blue backdrop. Charlie Puth, appears to be squatting in hot pink leopard trunks and white sneakers. His comment section has revealed support and enthusiasm from a number of his contemporaries like Lauv, One Republic’s Ryan Teddar, record labels and more.

“Girlfriend” Thursday June 25th

This tune will mark Puth’s first solo single of 2020. Speaking about it, the only thing he revealed in a recent tweet was this, “Girlfriend is one of my favourite songs I’ve ever made.” Well, that just leaves us even more intrigued.

The star’s had quite the winning streak with his singles. Just last year, in September, he put out the incredibly catchy tune, ‘Mother’. Sprinkled with rather cheeky lyrics and Charlie’s top notch falsettos, in no time, ‘Mother’ began soaring through charts world over. 

But, once again, coming back to ‘Girlfriend’, this song might just find its space on an album. And we’re saying this because, back in April, Charlie teased yet another tune based on the COVID-19 pandemic. Titled, ‘Sick’, the star played a snippet of the tune during an Instagram live session.

So, yes, we’re putting our bets on the album finding its way to us soon. But for now, let’s wait and see what ‘Girlfriend’ sounds like.

John Legend Pays Tribute To George Floyd As A Father

John Legend did a Father’s Day special with ABC this Sunday and the message was powerful and resounding. Though the special was beautifully set with appearances from Chrissy Teigen, Mila Kunis, Stevie Wonder, and more — what really stood out was John Legend reminding the viewers that George Floyd was also a father who has left Gianna Floyd behind.

The special called John Legend and Family: A Bigger Love Father’s Day had a strong message he said, “With all that’s going on in the world right now, we’re all the more grateful for the opportunity to entertain the whole family and, hopefully, spread a little joy.”

 While promoting his new album ‘Bigger Love’ he sang ‘Never Break’ from the album for the protestors and supporters of #BlackLivesMatter movement.

He also spoke about the song ‘Bigger Love’, “‘Bigger Love’ is a song that I wrote last year before the pandemic and before the most recent demonstrations, but its message resonates all the more now. It’s about hope, optimism and resilience. And a love that can help you through tough times.”

Continued John Legend as he closed the show, “I’m glad we could celebrate dads today, but the kind of love we need right now goes beyond our fathers, beyond our immediate family and our close friends. It’s about seeing the value and humanity in all of our brothers and sisters, whether they’re next door or across the globe. That’s the kind of love that’s bigger than racism, or any other ism that divides us. The kind of love that believes that black lives do indeed matter. A love that will bring us closer to justice and peace. Love is a big, beautiful, unstoppable force. So no matter how you choose to be part of the change we want to see in the world, may our love for one another continue to fuel our actions in the months and years ahead.”
