GRAMMY-nominated and multi-platinum singer-songwriter and producer, Charlie Puth, has joined forces with three-time GRAMMY Award-winning and multi-platinum country duo Dan + Shay for their new song That’s Not How This Works.

Known for giving a glimpse of his creative process to his more than 21 million followers on TikTok, Puth recently teased the track while fans speculated about the song's official release and collaborators.

Produced and written by Puth and co-written with Dan Smyers, That’s Not How This Works opens with soft solo vocals featuring Puth accompanied by only his piano, narrating the back-and-forth of a relationship at its end. The track continues its soft momentum as it integrates the soulful vocals and harmonies of Dan + Shay.

Directed by Phillip R. Lopez, the official video for That’s Not How This Works, also stars singer, songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter as Puth’s love interest.  Through a series of flashbacks, we see the pair navigate the high and lows of a young toxic relationship.

The new track follows the release of Puth’s third studio album CHARLIE, his most personal album yet. Even before its highly anticipated release, CHARLIE surpassed two billion global streams with the releases of I Don’t Think That I Like Her, Smells Like Me, That’s Hilarious, Light Switch and Left and Right (featuring Jung Kook of BTS) which has garnered over one billion streams alone and stands as Puth’s most successful chart debut to date.

Puth will take his latest album along with his greatest hits on the road later this year with his recently announced The Charlie Live Experience Tour kicking off this May in Mexico City.

Dan + Shay is composed of vocalists and songwriters Shay Mooney and Dan Smyers. Before the duo’s formation, Mooney was a solo artist and Smyers was a member of a group called Bonaventure as well as a previous member of the band, Transition. The two met in Nashville, Tennessee in 2012, and started writing together shortly after. They released their debut single the following year.

Their debut album, Where It All Began was released in 2014, and saw them open for artists like Hunter Hayes and Blake Shelton. That same year, they also made their Grand Ole Opry debut and received their first ACM Award nomination for ‘Vocal Duo of the Year.’ Their albums Obsessed (2016) and Good Things (2021) followed.
