"We Don't Talk Anymore" is a song produced and performed by American singer Charlie Puth from his debut studio album Nine Track Mind (2016). It contains guest vocals from Selena Gomez. Jacob Kasher co-wrote the track with the artists. The song was released on May 24, 2016,[1] as the third and final single from the album. Musically, it is a pop song with a tropical-inspired production.

The song peaked at number 9 on the US Billboard Hot 100, earning Puth his second top 10 single and Gomez's sixth. It has also attained the top 10 positions in more than 20 countries, and reached number one in Italy, Lebanon, Serbia and Romania.

Background[edit]

Puth created the guitar line during a trip in Japan. He produced the beat in the Philippines and recorded his vocals in Los Angeles.[2] Months later Puth played the song for Selena Gomez,[3] whom he had met previously at an after party following the MTV Video Music Awards.[4] He thought that their voices would complement each other well[4] and then asked her to sing the second verse. Gomez's vocals were recorded in Puth's closet.[5] Her recording session lasted approximately 15 minutes.[6] On December 10, 2015, Puth posted a snippet of the song announcing the collaboration with Gomez.[7] On January 10, 2016, Puth posted a second teaser.[6]

Composition[edit]

"We Don't Talk Anymore" is a pop song with a tropical-inspired production.[8][9] The song is in the key of C minor and has 100 beats per minute. Bobby Oliver of NJ.com described it as "a pulsing club jam."[10] Lyrically, the song takes perspective from a former couple and their struggle to maintain a normal communication system in the aftermath of their break-up. Puth said the song is about "relationships where you're obsessed with that one person, but then you break it up peacefully, but it's changed. You can't talk to them like friends anymore. You can say you want to remain friends, but it's easier said than done. It’s heartbreaking. 'We Don't Talk Anymore' is basically the conversation a month after that type of breakup."[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Writing for Spin, Brennan Carley found the song "wisely trades verses between the two pop forces, cashing in on the trop-house trend" and added that it is "a worthy, breezy slice of pop."[8] Bobby Oliver of NJ.com wrote the song is "wonderfully infectious, and feels destined for hit radio."[10] MTV's Madeline Roth praised the singers' vocals by saying they "blend so beautifully together."[11] Marie Sherman of Fuse said the song is "freaking catchy" and that the chorus would be stuck in people's heads.[12] Lindsey Sullivan of Billboard called the song "ridiculously catchy".[13] Idolator's Mike Wass opined that the song "sounds like a smash."[14] Dee Lockett of Vulture.com deemed it "the chillest breakup duet."[15]

Music videos[edit]

Live performance video[edit]

A live performance video was released on July 19, 2016.[16] It features Puth and Gomez performing with the latter's Revival Tour in Anaheim, California on July 9.[17]

Official video[edit]

The music video premiered on August 2, 2016, on BuzzFeed and was directed by Phil Pinto. It shows Puth and Mirella Cardoso as his love interest. This video does not include the appearance of Gomez, but only used the version of Puth and Gomez. As of December 2018, the video has more than 2.0 billion views and 7 million likes on YouTube[18] and is the site's 28th most-viewed video.[19] It was nominated for Best Collaboration at 2017 MTV Video Music Awards but lost to Zayn and Taylor Swift's I Don't Wanna Live Forever.[20]
