Charlie Puth Rolls Out Haywyre Remix Of “Girlfriend”
Charlie Puth’s “Girlfriend” is a summery delight. The self-produced bop, which evokes ’80s Prince with its sexy lyrics and elastic synths, has already racked up more than 27 million streams — a number that will rise exponentially with the arrival of the pitched-down remix. Electronic producer Haywyre works his magic on the track, transforming it into club fodder… if clubs were still open. Given our current reality, this is a perfect addition to your workout or house party (for one) playlist.
“Girlfriend” is expected to be the lead single from Charlie’s third album. Of course, the 28-year-old released a trio of stand-alone singles in 2019 — the alt-R&B “I Warned Myself,” a deceptively romantic tune called “Cheating On You” and “Mother,” which feels/sounds like an earlier draft of “Girlfriend.” He also lent his voice to a remix of 5 Seconds Of Summer’s “Easier” and Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope.” Oh, and the pop star also teamed up with Lennon Stella for “Summer Feelings.” Listen to Charlie’s “Girlfriend” remix below.
