It’s a great song, but he doesn’t have the voice for it. His vocal works best with sugary pop songs, it doesn’t have enough swagger for something more Prince-esque. Miguel or Bruno would slay a track like this.
As for the video, this is more a D’Angelo homage, isn’t it?
I want to bury my nose in those armpits, I’m sorry
I really love this, it's the kind of summer bop I've been craving. Only Kylie really delivered up until now imo.
I actually think Charlie is really under-rated as an artist/creator and I don't quite understand why he gets a lot of crap because of what he posts on social media. If we're going there, you should really take a deeper look into other (and more popular) artists.
Maybe I'm in a minority but I loved Charlie and thought it was a decent continuation to Voicenotes.
I only got into Charlie during his last album. I’ll be honest, he only got on my radar because of the thirst traps. I’m a tacky gay. But i stuck around because i liked the music. The album has bops and he’s cute and a bit awkward.
But the new song is a snore and that spoken word part in the middle is so cringe.
