When Shawn Mendes brings his Illuminate World Tour back to the United States on July 6, Charlie Puth will join him as his opening act. Earlier this week, Mendes debuted a new track ahead of the tour launch. Puth has followed suit by premiering a new bop of his own. Like Shawn’s “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back,” Charlie’s single is equally as fantastic.
“He’s such a professional and a really cool guy,” Mendes told EW about Puth. “And an incredible writer-producer. He’ll be really cool to work with.”
“Attention” is the first taste off Puth’s sophomore album. If the rest of the LP is half as good as the lead cut, I’m optimistic it’ll match the heights of his debut. Nine Track Mind spawned the hits, “One Call Away,” “Marvin Gaye” (ft. Meghan Trainor) and “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (ft. Selena Gomez)” and peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
Give “Attention” a listen below. It’s a groovy polished track with slight disco influence. Expect radio to fall in love with this. It could easily be a contender for “Song of the Summer” for 2017.
