Charlie Puth goes ‘Fast and the Furious’ in ‘I Warned Myself’

Charlie Puth has been quiet for a bit, but things are about to change. On Wednesday (Aug. 21), the New York-born singer unleashed his first new song in over a year. Titled “I Warned Myself,” the tune was written by Puth and produced by the singer and Benny Blanco.

In conjunction with the new song’s premiere, Puth has also released the two-and-a-half-minute music video for the song. The clip features Puth in different scenarios including a desert, a soundstage with a model, inside a warehouse surrounded by women, and pulling off an incredibly-dangerous stunt by climbing onto the roof of a moving car and just standing on it as it goes.

Let’s just say that this music video could easily be an outtake from a “Fast and the Furious” film. Watch the Brendan Vaughan-directed video above.

“I Warned Myself” is Puth’s first new song since the release of his Grammy-nominated sophomore album Voicenotes. The album was released in 2018 and produced several hit singles including “Attention,” “How Long,” “The Way I Am,” and “Done for Me” featuring Kehlani.

While it’s taken almost a year for Puth to release new material, he’s been keeping busy behind the scenes. He recently provided his gifts for several artists including Katy Perry (“Small Talk”), 5 Seconds of Summer (“Easier”), Maroon 5 (“Lips on You”), Michael Bublé (“Love You Anymore”), and more.

As previously revealed, Puth will perform at the Midtown Music Festival in Georgia and a few weeks later headline the Palco Sunset stage at Rock in Rio on Oct. 5.
