Charlie Puth bombing again. Is it over?

After his Tringle bombed last year (Mother, the “official” single that was pushed on TTH + Radio only charted in NZ and nowhere else...)

 

Now his new lead “Girlfriend” is bombing hard in its first week:

 

#32 US ITunes 

#898 US AM

OUT on Spotify in every single Country

 

The song is honestly a cute Summer bop and deserves to at least chart on the BBH100 :rip:

There are too many songs called girlfriend... And there was NO promo for this ...

He deserves better than this. Should be bigger than Shawn Mendes

Yeah, I like his music but I'm afraid he is not gonna bounce back like Meghan Trainor.

Bounce back and Meghan Trainor don’t really go together

Yes the GP is finally over him doing the same thing all the time. If he wants to stay popular he needs to try a new sound because this is very stale.

Well I mean the way he said the three songs he released earlier weren't the direction he wanted and how he would never release a generic song again, only to return with a song that easily could fit on an album with those songs :rip: he is talented, but I feel he need a guide in this business that is a little more experimental. He should give Rick Rubin a call

I like his music, but he really needs to try something other than the 80s sound.

He's not the type of artist that will get people flickering around his every release. Without airplay and playlist exposure he won't smash outside the once in a while smash.

Yes, but he's gonna have a good career as a behind-the-scenes songwriter.

A song on a straight relationship in 2020 is boring.  Straight people need to understand that it's not 2005 anymore.

To be honest he's never gonna see the success of SYA, Attention or WDTA but he has 3 songs over 1b streams, multiple Grammy nomineee, a decent insta following (15 m), a 11x plat single, a 2x plat album. So he will continue to flop, well I don't care as long as he makes music I enjoy and drops more music and an album I'm happy. He had his 15 mins and unfortunately he doesn't have the star power of Shawn Mendes. Nobody outside stan world really knows Charlie Puth and I don't care. I'll still follow his career flop after flop because that's what a real fan does unless fakes who stop following their faves when they completely fade

That song was even more dull than I thought it would be. Why go with an 80s sound if you're going to be this boring?

Umm Meghan's new album was great. She returned to pure pop & slayed. Good songwriting. Catchy hooks. A complete bop. She needs better promo tho. No way Dua lipa should be outselling. But Due uses so much payola

To add more:

He is also a producer, so he can continue making music for other artists.

He's respected among his peers.

Just because it’s not a bad song it doesn’t mean it’s good or deserves success. 
 

With that being said Charlie can always have a career behind the scenes. Most importantly, he’s a straight white male, he can always come back with the right song at the right time.

Meghan flopped though and the album is not good. Did you just imply that her album is better than Future Nostalgia? That it objectively not true :rip:
