We’re still two months away from the release of Charlie Puth’s sophomore album Voicenotes, however, today he ramped up the excitement by dropping a brand new track.
‘Done For Me’ is a collaboration with RnB princess Kehlani which received its premiere on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 earlier today. The track is a pop/RnB bop which has Charlie’s signature infectious vibe written all over it. Both Charlie and Kehlani’s soulful vocals shine during the song whilst also blending perfectly together.
Speaking about the track, Charlie told Zane: “I made this record…I produced this after an unsuccessful party in L.A., which is what all these records are based off of on my album. But I just went home played these, I have my little Juno keyboard over there that I had. It’s the top keyboard over there.
“I had gotten it that night and I just hit one of these settings here and just played a B minor cord and it just made me think of Wham!, it made me think of 1988 and I put that chord down and I immediately thought of Kehlani, too.”
As for working with his good friend Kehlani, Charlie added that “she’s just such a warm and outgoing person and just such a good distinct voice.”

Voicenotes was originally due to be released in January. However, Charlie announced that it was going to be pushed back as he was producing the album himself and did not feel that it was perfect at the time. We can now expect Voicenotes on May 11.
