Ha ha ha,” he mentioned he thought.

It’s probably about a real conversation she had with somebody.’ And I thought to myself, ‘Why don’t I get hyper specific in my lyrics ever? Because I’m so concerned about a song being a hit? No.’ I feel like I owe it to myself to make a song where people really know the true backstory of something.”

Regardless of being stunned by the lyric point out, Puth has but to instantly communicate to Swift. Although he revealed that he wrote her a notice. “I was just like, ‘This means more, and I will take this newfound courage to put this new body of work out.’ Again, I was working on it already, but I was just unsure and it’s cool to get a stamp of approval from an artist that you have idolized for such a long time and still do.”

Puth just lately launched a brand new tune known as “Hero” which he credited Swift for giving him the braveness to launch.

“I’m just very thankful. I’m a broken record, but I’m very thankful for her shout-out because I really don’t know if I would’ve had the courage to put a song like this out. And all I needed was just that little ‘You’re good, put it out’ reminder. And I’m very excited for people to hear this kind of new side of me,” he mentioned.

As as to if he thinks he ought to be a “bigger artist” because the lyric suggests, Puth mentioned he agrees: “I think I should be.
