“Charlie Be Quiet!” by Charli Puth

In his recent cover story with GQ, writer Ira Madison III says, “In one song (“Charlie Be Quiet!”), he has Hamlet-esque battles with his inner monologue about how talking too much will turn women off.” Whether Madison simplifies Puth’s quick rambling or the chorus’s nostalgic rock guitars as a “Hamlet-esque battle,” both are correct!

On the chorus, the guitars and Puth get angsty, “Charlie, be quiet, don’t make a sound. / You’ve got to lower the noise a little bit now. / If she knows you’re in love, she’s gonna run, run away.” It is an all-too-knowing feeling to make yourself smaller to keep others around.

First teased on August 29 via TikTok, he revealed to Apple Music that the Ying Yang Twins’s “The Whisper Song” inspired his whispery vocals. He continues, “Then, in the second half of the chorus, you have the illusion of it getting louder for the listener, but it’s actually all mastered to the same level. You just jumped the octave.”

This year, the singer shared singles “Light Switch”, “Smells Like You,” and “Left And Right” ( featuring Jung Kook from BTS.)

Now, this is not an album review, but Music Daily wants to preview its readers on what to expect. Puth’s newest work is about a breakup, making the past two years unbearable; however, there’s an unexpected sonic twist!

GQ’s Ive Madison III writes, “[…] the album isn’t Puth doing some Adele post-divorce impersonation—it’s an upbeat, synthy, ‘80s pop album. ‘[Charlie] totally is a breakup album,’ he says. ‘And the major dichotomy, the elephant in the room, is that the music is almost joyful.'”
