Charlie Puth doesn't draw on his own heartbreaks for musical inspiration but rather that of his close friends
Charlie Puth uses his friend's break ups to inspire his music.
The 'See You Again' hitmaker has revealed his latest track 'We Don't Talk Anymore' with Selena Gomez was partly-inspired by the heartbreak of a good friend.
He shared: "I remember a conversation I had had with my friend. He had just broken up with this girl, and I was like, 'So, are you going to talk to her anymore?' And he was like, 'Nah, we don't talk anymore.'
"I was trying to cheer him up, so I did a dumb little face, and I was like, (singing) 'We don't talk anymore.' It became a cool melody, and I realised that this guitar beat fit perfectly over it."
The 24-year-old singer also revealed the 'Heart Wants What It Wants' hitmaker felt a sudden connection with the song when he played it for her.
He shared to MTV News: "I met up with Selena. And she went through a very public relationship, on and off, and she could just relate to the song and the lyrical sentiment.
"I was playing the song for her, and she just started singing the second verse. I got chills. I was like, 'Oh my gosh, that sounds so real. You need to sing on it.' And she said yes."
