Update, 12:30 p.m.: Talk about a glow-up. Charlie Puth released the music video for “Light Switch,” in which he goes from eating and drinking away his feelings on the couch to training his way back into shape. The video culminates in (you guessed it!) a performance of “Light Switch” to get back the girl he lost, only for Puth to realize she already has a new man. Back to the couch! As he did with the song, Puth teased the music video on TikTok before its release — even that beard-hair combo that somehow manages to be messier than his current moppy do.
Original story follows.
Charlie Puth is ready to flip on his new single. The singer-songwriter-producer released “Light Switch,” a groovy and sensual love song (sadly, not the heartbreak anthem he’s been waiting for), on January 20. He hadn’t been keeping fans in the dark prior to that — Puth had been documenting the creation of the song on TikTok for months. And yes, it even includes the sound of a light switch flipping! Puth produced the song himself and co-wrote it with JKash and Jake Torrey. But in a statement, he said the fans who followed the song on TikTok “almost wrote it with me.” “Light Switch” is the first single off Puth’s upcoming third album, Charlie. Since his last album, 2018’s Voicenotes, Puth has released a number of one-off singles and collaborated with Elton John, blackbear, Sasha Sloan, and Gabby Barrett. You could say he still wants the attention.
