Charlie Puth has unveiled a sensual new single, “Lipstick.” The song arrived with an intimate music video that zooms in on Puth as he removes his shirt and blows smoke out of his mouth.
“Lipstick,” which sees Puth asking someone to put their lipstick on his neck and body, was produced by Happy Perez and Pop Wansel. It will serve as the lead single of Puth’s forthcoming fourth LP, which has yet to get a release date.

“In regards to the song I’m putting out tonight, it is the start of my new album,” Puth shared on social media. “It’s also one of my favorite mixes I’ve ever done. I think it’s damn near perfect…”
Puth’s last album, Charlie, was released in 2022. It featured singles “Light Switch,” “That’s Hilarious,” and “Left and Right,” a collaboration with Jungkook of BTS. The musician embarked on his Charlie Live Experience tour in May in support of the LP.
The singer has since released “Angel, Pt. 2,” recorded for Fast X. The sweet, sad song also features BTS’ Jimin, Muni Long, and Jvke and follows Jvke’s “Angel, Pt. 1,” which featured Kodak Black and NLE Choppa.
Last year, Puth told Rolling Stone he prefers to make music in full view of his fans. “I don’t think I’m ever gonna make an album where I’m hiding away from people,” he said, “and I’m in my little cocoon and then one day I’ll be ready to share it with everybody. It just doesn’t feel like me.”
