It’s finally here! Charlie Puth dropped the sizzling music video for his duet with Selena Gomez, ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ on August 2! HollywoodLife.com has all the details on his new hit, which will definitely leave fans missing their ex. See the epic collaboration for yourself, here!
Charlie Puth, 24, totally delivered with his new music video, playing out a sad love story which will likely cause viewers to feel nostalgic about their former flames. It begins with a split-shot of Charlie and his love interest going about their lives in New York City after breaking things off. Both can be seen partaking in their daily routines, while clearly missing the other. Although Selena Gomez, 23, doesn’t make an appearance — her vocals are featured and offer the perfect touch!
Charlie did join up with Sel to perform the catchy jam for the first time EVER during her Revival Tour on July 10. He also performed the single at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards and even received a nomination for Choice Breakup Song. Since then, we’ve had high hopes for the video, especially considering it’s unique origin.
The crooner said a friend’s breakup with his girlfriend was actually the source of inspiration, according to MTV News. He asked his lovesick buddy: “So, are you going to talk to her anymore?’ And he was like, ‘Nah, we don’t talk anymore.'” Charlie said he was trying to cheer him up, so he did a “dumb little face” and began singing the line. LOL!
Charlie also recalled how Selena got involved on the duet. He met with the songstress as she was going through a public breakup (right around the time of her split with Justin Bieber, 22). Obviously, she could relate to the touchy subject matter. He said: “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.'” What a dream team!
