  • Nine Track Mind (2016)
  • Voicenotes (2018)



Tropes include:

  • Attention Whore: "Attention" is about Puth calling out one of these, talking about how she doesn't care about his feelings and only wants him to pay attention to her.
  • Bowdlerise: Nickelodeon's online/New York radio station "Nick Radio" edits "We Don't Talk Anymore" in an attempt to remove "I overdosed", however the editing is quite sloppy, making the line "I over (sudden cut) should've known your love was a game..."
  • Celebrity Elegy: "See You Again", which featured Puth, was one to the late Paul Walker.
  • Drugs Are Bad: Puth used to be an avid pot smoker, having taken up the habit after working with pot enthusiast Wiz Khalifa. He quit in early 2018 after a six-hour cannabis bender made him almost deathly ill.
  • Poor Communication Kills: "We Don't Talk Anymore"; both singers assume that the other has moved on from their relationship and is happy with their life, not knowing that the opposite is true because, well, they don't talk anymore.

  • Similarly Named Works: His hit duet with Selena Gomez, "We Don't Talk Anymore", is not a cover of the 1979 hit by British pop legend Cliff Richard.
  • Stringing the Hopeless Suitor Along: "Attention" is about he's trying to move on from an ex, but she follows him around just to prevent him from moving on. This song provides the trope's page quote.
  • Telephone Song: In "One Call Away", he assures his lover he'll be there if she calls.
