Welcome to the new episode of the Billboard.com Pop Shop Podcast, Billboard's weekly audio breakdown of the Billboard charts, hottest music news and year's biggest musical events. Casual pop fans and chart junkies can hear Billboard co-director of charts Keith Caulfield and Billboard.com senior editor Katie Atkinson every Tuesday on the Pop Shop Podcast, which can be streamed on Billboard.com or downloaded in iTunes (click here to listen to the previous Tuesday’s edition of the show on Billboard.com).
On the latest show, the Pop Shop team goes on location -- to Charlie Puth’s house! We sat down with the singer/songwriter in his home studio in Los Angeles, where he walked us through some of the recording process of his new single “Attention.” In the podcast, Puth plays some of the 250-plus individual tracks that make up the song -- a tune he created from the ground up on his own. (On the June 10-dated Billboard Hot 100 chart, "Attention" became Puth's fifth top 40-charting hit, rising 45-35.)
