“When I wrote ‘Marvin Gaye,’ my whole intention was to make a record that people would put on a record player… and just instantly make out with each other,” Puth tells Billboard. 

Well, mission accomplished! But are he and Trainor… together? Based off what he told us, fans will probably be left hoping; it appears Puth and Trainor just wanted to recreate making out of the "Marvin Gaye" music video.

“It’s kissing your best friend,” Puth says. “It’s a little tricky, but she’s a great kisser.”
