Charlie Puth released MV for the emotional song “That’s Hilarious” yesterday, May 5.
The song is Charlie’s confession when going through a painful breakup. The entire process of composing “That’s Hilarious” as well as Charlie’s confessions were shared on his TikTok with more than 16 million followers.
Charlie once said on TikTok: “Every time I listen to ‘That’s Hilarious’ I remember again difficult time in my life. 2019 was really a terrible year for me. Writing this song is one of the hardest challenges, listening to it again is also very difficult for me.”
“But through this song, I want you to know that you and I, we’re not that different. We all go through despair, heartbreak, joy and sadness etc. Sometimes all of these feelings come at the same time. That’s the message of the song.”
Charlie also posted on TikTok a short clip of the music video, and said that some of the scenes he shot while drunk were to avoid getting immersed in the song’s melancholy emotions.
Billboard commented, “If “That’s Hilarious” reaches the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 like “Light Switch”; Charlie once again confirms his reliable “hitmaker” title, similar to the period before 2019″.
Maybe after all, Charlie is the only one who should be laughing and enjoying himself.
