Charlie Puth Opens Up About The Meaning Of ‘The Way I Am’

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Charlie Puth is not afraid to be himself!

In a recent interview, the 26-year-old singer opened up about the meaning of his newest single, “The Way I Am.” This upbeat bop wowed fans with its honest and raw lyrics since Charlie’s sophomore album, “Voicenotes,” was released in May and listeners got the chance to hear Charlie’s take on the tune, which might possibly be his most personal song, yet!

Charlie reveals that after releasing his first album in 2015, he often was caught in between being true to himself and doing what he thought a “famous person” was supposed to do. Ultimately, he realized that he had to stay true to himself and hence, “The Way I Am” was born!

“I just had to take a step back there for a little and realize who my true friends were and who would be a good girl to hang out with and I just haven’t found that yet. I want something that’s real.”

ICYMI: Charlie just released the music video for “The Way I Am”!
