Charlie Puth's latest single “The Way I Am” sees the 26-year-old singer singing about the struggles fitting in and finding someone to love, but in the video for the song, at least the latter might not be a problem.
As the video opens, a house party begins, with empty bottles and busy bodies swirling around Puth as he sings “Maybe I might get a little anxious, maybe I might get a little shy.” The camera flashes between shots Puth sitting amid the party craziness and alone on the ro the house, exemplifying the feelings anxiousness he expresses in the electric guitar-heavy Voicenotes track.
But among the madness, Puth catches the eye a brunette partygoer. The two make eyes at each other while Puth continues singing and the rest the party continues to rage, until they come face to face as the rager (and video) come to an end. Though they exchange nothing but flirty smirks before the clip fades to black, it seems Puth may not have to sing “all I want to do is just hold somebody” much longer.
Puth's most recent video arrives just before he kicks f the 2018 Honda Civic Tour — his biggest headlining trek to date — on Friday (July 13) in Boston. Check out his full list tour dates below.
