Artiste: Char­lie Puth La­bel: Warner Mu­sic

DE­SPITE be­ing a YouTube star, I’m sure it wasn’t un­til the re­lease of the film, Fu­ri­ous 7, that the world re­ally took no­tice of Char­lie Puth.

Puth pro­vided the vo­cals for the very catchy cho­rus of the heart­break­ing See You Again, a trib­ute to the late Paul Walker.

Now, the singer has re­leased his very own al­bum, filled with sickly sweet lyrics and Puth’s en­chant­ing falsetto that aim to make teenage girls swoon.

While I per­son­ally feel Puth has the vo­cal chops to veer out of the pop genre, he seems to have played it safe here. Still,

is a very de­cent ef­fort from this young singer, as it has a good mix of songs and most of them are in­cred­i­bly catchy.

Af­ter a lis­ten or two, you would prob­a­bly be hum­ming or singing them out loud. There are 13 tracks in

– all about fall­ing in love, fall­ing out of love, deal­ing with breakups and the like.

If you’re like me and pre­fer al­bums filled with tracks that don’t just deal with re­la­tion­ships and want some­thing a lit­tle more

One Call Away, Marvin Gaye fea­tur­ing Meghan Trainor, We Don’t Talk Any­more fea­tur­ing Se­lena Gomez, and, of course, See You Again fea­tur­ing Wiz Khal­ifa.

Other than those tracks, the ones that catch my at­ten­tion for a split sec­ond are Suf­fer, Some Type of Love and Los­ing My Mind as they feel a lit­tle more ex­per­i­men­tal.
