“That’s Hilarious,” produced by Puth and co-written with longtime collaborator JKash, deeply shares the pain of feeling betrayed by a breakup with Puth’s emotional and charring vocals and lyrics. The song is from his forthcoming album entitled CHARLIE,due out later this year, and it is his most personal work yet.
Charlie shared the poignant journey of how “That’s Hilarious” was inspired by a painful breakup he experienced to his 16 million fans on TikTok.
“I’m really excited for the song to come out, but every time I hear it, I’m kind of brought back to a time that was really, really challenging in my life,” he says. “I never told people what happened to me and the pain that I went through going through the worst breakup of my life in 2019… I just wanted to throw it under the carpet and start over and surround myself with better people. But this is the hardest song that I ever had to put together, and I’m so excited for you to hear it.”
“That’s Hilarious” follows “Light Switch,” Charlie’s most successful release ever. Puth released “Light Switch” in January 2022 after months of fan anticipation and teasing via TikTok. The highly-anticipated, critically-acclaimed single hit #1 on the Apple iTunes Pop Chart and has garnered over 211 million streams globally and more than 50 million YouTube video views to date. Puth recently appeared and performed “Light Switch” on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE and the iHeart Awards, where he did a special fan-favorite dueling piano performance with EGOT John Legend.
