Charlie Puth kicked off the rollout for his sophomore album VoiceNotes strong with its massive lead single “Attention,” and we have a feeling this new version featuring KYLE will only expand its reach.
The L.A.-based rapper, who will be performing at this year's ComplexCon, opens up the track with a few bars aimed at his ex, and pops up later to let her know she’s playing with the wrong guy. “Searching for attention in my mentions/But talkin’ shit’s the only way to get some/Nope, but you can try/Trust me baby you ain’t gon’ be gettin’ none of mine,” he raps over the catchy backdrop that’s been a staple on the radio all summer long.
“Attention” has become one of the biggest pop anthems of 2017, with a platinum plaque and a top-five showing on the Billboard Hot 100 chart to boot. If the rest of VoiceNotes—which will feature a more personal narrative from Puth than his debut album Nine Track Mind—follows suit, fans have a lot to look forward to.
