Remember that scene in 500 Days of Summer when Tom puts his shit together while Summer marries off? Charlie Puth’s new video “We Don’t Talk Anymore” ft. Selena Gomez is kind of like that but focused on the painful stage of still getting over the person. The American pop singer interchangeably chants about the vocal distance with Selena in a midtempo, urban pop soundscape. The music video captures how life keeps moving and looks deceivingly normal on the surface:

Charlie Puth first hit the spotlight with his viral work on YouTube and worked as an independent artist until he decided to sign with Atlantic Record in 2015. He released his debut album, Nine Track Mind, on January 29 of this year and includes the single “We Don’t Talk Anymore.” He has show dates coming up:
