Charlie said the catchy song would drop on Friday if it received 500,000 pre-saves (June 24).
As the BTS break era begins, get ready. Charlie Puth teased last week that he would release his song with BTS’s Jungkook if he received 500,000 pre-saves.
On Thursday morning, Charlie Puth shared two intriguing teasers of the pair’s bouncy pop song “Left and Right” (June 23).
In the sneak preview of the video, Puth can be heard singing in his trademark falsetto, “Memories follow me left and right/ I can feel you over here/ I can feel you over here/ You take over every corner of my mind.”
The two guys sing back-to-back while changing into various clothes in the brief clip, while Jungkook grabs onto a car hood for dear life as it races through town while attempting to hear a conversation on the other side using a glass.
A short while later, Puth released a second preview, uploading a video on Instagram in which he and Jungkook bob their heads while sitting in an old sedan and beatbox up to the song’s beat while using the click of the door locks as an additional rhythm track as Charlie shouts, “so cool!”
The official music video for the single will premiere at midnight along with the release of the song.
In a video released last week, Puth called up Jungkook and enquired, “Hey dude, what does it sound like when you sing “Memories follow me left and right?” After Jungkook gave it a try, Puth instructed him to stand to the left of the microphone and sing “I can be over here,” then to the right.
“And it sounds like this… this is going to be insane!” Ruth exclaimed once that relatively easy task was finished.
A few days had passed since Jungkook and the other members of BTS made their decision to take a break from their group activities in order to focus on their solo careers when the song’s teaser was released.
