New Music Fridays are an exciting, yet daunting prospect for any music lover.
It’s essentially a weekly holiday where fan-favorite artists and new faces drop their latest offerings for the world to hear, flooding streaming services and digital retailers with an onslaught of sonic goodies. But who has time to sit down and listen to everything before updating their playlists? There are too many good things! (And, if we’re being honest, usually a few stinkers too.)
Turns out we do. Welcome to Mixtape!
New Friday music is no joke for Charlie Puth!
On April 8, the singer released a moving new song ironically titled “That’s Hilarious.” According to the 30-year-old, it’s one of the most powerful songs he’s ever helped create.
“Every time I hear it, I’m kind of taken back to a time that was really, really tough in my life,” Charlie said in a statement. “I never told people what happened to me and the pain I went through during the worst breakup of my life in 2019… This is the hardest song I’ve ever had to compose , and I’m so excited for you to hear this.”
