Charlie Puth has unveiled the official music video for “Girlfriend,” his first solo release of 2020.
The new visual follows Puth preparing for a dinner date that results in an unexpected turn of events.
“I’ve never released a music video that wholeheartedly showed my personality. The video for ‘Girlfriend’ is the first time I’ve truly been myself in every aspect. I can’t cook and I’m an absolute nerd. It’s also meant to visually represent what I want people to do when they hear my music and that’s to have fun in their very own way,” says Puth.
In the funny video, Puth prepares for a dinner date at his house, but he burns the food so ends up having to order delivery. After a quick spray of air freshener and the table all set, the clock strikes nine and Charlie’s date has yet to arrive. To pass the time, Puth throws a solo dance party at home, and when his date shows up, she finds him twerking on the dinner table.
“Girlfriend” follows Puth’s appearance on Lennon Stella’s “Summer Feelings” from SCOOB! The Album and Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” Remix, along with his trio of songs released in 2019 – “I Warned Myself,” “Mother,” and “Cheating On You” – which have racked up nearly 250 million combined worldwide streams and over 65 million video views. He most recently co-wrote on John Legend’s “I Do,” Katy Perry’s “Small Talk” and “Harleys In Hawaii,” and 5 Seconds of Summer’s “Easier.”
