Watch Charlie Puth Sing Easy Listening '90s Punk on 'Tonight Show'
Put also sang his new single, "The Way I Am," on Tuesday night (July 17).
Charlie Puth brought back some classic '90s pop punk hits with a twist on Tuesday night (July 17) during his visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Fallon set up the bit by professing his love for "the angsty, fast-paced sound 90's punk" and the "relatable, catchy pop sound of super mega star Charlie Puth," in order to promote a fake album entitled, Charlie Puth Sings 90's Punk. He even rolled "clips" of the pop star crooning smooth pop versions of Blink-182's "All The Small Things" and Lit's "My Own Worst Enemy," in front of a green screen showing scenes of skateboarders, people crowd surfing at concerts and cheesy '90s graphics.
But that was not all. Because Fallon also promoted Puth's other "upcoming album, Charlie Puth Sings Spice Girls. Showing a different side of the '90s, the promo clip showed Puth bursting into the hook and chorus of the girl group's most famous hit, "Wannabe."
After all the antics were over, Fallon finally introduced Puth, who is currently on tour and promoting his new single "The Way I Am" off of his album Voicenotes. The real-deal performance was a bit edgier than Puth's typically smooth, electro pop tracks. Instead, the crooner opened with a fast paced electric guitar that remained consistent throughout most the song, matching the anxious feelings Puth expressed in the lyrics.
