Stephen Puth

Singer, songwriter, and musician Stephen Puth came by the Hollywire studio to talk about his career, life, and the release of his new single ‘Sexual Vibe.’ The music video to this song is out now! Puth says about his song, “It’s about that moment when you see someone across the room, and how you feel before anything even happens. It’s about the build up and seeing where it goes. When I’m writing, I’m interested in how something started, how it ended, and everything in between.” The music video takes place at a Hollywood Hills house party where it creatively shows the instant chemistry between two people, himself and a girl attending the party. We are taken on the journey of their night together as they flirt from room to room, eventually ending up in the pool together and acting upon that instant chemistry. While in the Hollywire studio, Puth performs an acoustic rendition of his song ‘Sexual Vibe’ and informs our host that the story in this song was discovered while in a nightclub about a year ago! Puth remembers those small moments that some may look over and turns it into an instant hit! He says about those moments that, “I try to focus on the tiny, specific things I can’t forget, things I didn’t think anything of at the time, but that later become powerful, emotional memories.” We can’t wait to see what he has in store for us next!
