Charlie Puth released the video for his newest song “Attention.” This video continues to show that Charlie Puth is experiencing his sexual awakening through his new music. And that isn’t a bad thing because this is one of his best songs.
One of the great things about music videos is that it shows another meaning behind the song that we wouldn’t get or understand without the help of the video. This is very much the case when it comes to “Attention.” The video showcases a relationship from seeing each other, the honeymoon phase, the whole way to the vicious end. Pretty much, captures the ups and downs of a relationship with the lyrics explain the reason they aren’t together.
it’s also worth mentioning that the model slightly looks like Bella Thorne, Charlie’s ex. Now, is this just a confidence? Probably but I won’t put it past because talking about exes in songs if you are a singer seems to be the norm these days. You can thank your little darling Taylor Swift, who is amazing, for that. And it would make sense if it was her because while Bella Thorne seems like a very nice girl, she comes across as a wild child. And while I’m not calling Bella an attention whore who plays with people’s emotions like an emotionless bitch, but it appears that Charlie Puth is…allegedly.
The video really adds to the song and makes it better than what I said in the review. Here’s another link for the video because #selfpromo. He really used the music video for its intended purpose, which was to add to the song and make it stand out visually and not just audibly. It also very relatable because it’s what all people deal with the ups and downs of relationship like this.
The part of the video that stands out for me is the girl in the video throwing shit and their fighting because I’m sorry, it really didn’t add much to it. She had the crazy ex girlfriend that’s going to kill you eyes. It made me smile because it was just so much. And then the cuts to them hate kissing was just like “wow, I know where this is going.” If you don’t, they had breakup sex. Or so we think.
The probably best scene of the entire video is when Charlie is sitting at the end of the bed and his love interest/ex is sitting at the top in lingerie. He just totally denies her and shows himself finally moving and not letting her control his life. Oh, and the recording of Charlie singing a rough version of the song at the end was a very nice touch.
Overall, it’s actually a great music video that really helps take a song that I rated as 4 out of 5 to another level. The only bad thing about the video is the fight scene because it was just funny.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
