For his Boyz II Men collabo, “If You Leave Me Now,” Charlie Puth slowed things down. The 26-year-old singer picks up the tempo for his latest taste off his forthcoming album Voicenotes.
“Done For Me” finds Puth teaming up with Kehlani again. They previously joined forces on an excellent cover of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” back in 2015. I’m glad they decided to work together once more, because they sound fantastic on the catchy bop. Charlie reveals he drew inspiration from ’80s sensation Wham on his new offering.
“I made this record, I produced this after an unsuccessful party in L.A., which is what all these records are based off of on my album. But I just went home played these, I have my little Juno keyboard over there that I had….I just hit one of these settings here and just played a B minor cord and it just made me think of Wham!, it made me think of 1988 and I put that chord down and I immediately thought of Kehlani too,” Charlie explained to Zane Lowe.
I love all things George Michael, so naturally, I’m all over Puth’s tribute to the late singer. Give it a listen below.
