Charlie Puth defies gravity in his new music video for “How Long.”
Puth traverses buildings and manipulates gravity in his head spinning new clip. He might look innocent in his tailored suit and shiny shoes as he Hotline Blings his way down a deserted city street, but he’s no angel.
On “How Long,” Puth himself trying to explain why he cheated on his girl. “I’ll admit, I was wrong / What else can I say, girl,” he sings over an infectious clap and soaring falsetto background vocals. “Can’t you break my head and not my heart / I was drunk, I was gone / But don’t make it right / But promise there were no feelings involved.” She’s not buying it. “She said ‘Boy, tell me honestly / Was it real or just for show?’ She said ‘Save your apologies’ / Baby, I just gotta know.”
