Charlie Puth recently debuted his new single, “Hero,” on TikTok, declaring that it will be out everywhere on May 24th as the first single of his new album. Puth explained that the song was about his friend and had been sitting on his hard drive for a while before deciding to release it. The announcement was met with excitement from fans, who have been eagerly awaiting new music from the 32-year-old artist.

Taylor Swift’s 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, featured a mention of Charlie Puth in the title track. In the lyrics, Swift sings about smoking, eating chocolate, and declaring that Puth should be a bigger artist. Fans speculated that the mention could be a nod to Swift’s ex-boyfriend, Matty Healy, who had tweeted praise for Puth in the past. Puth’s repost of Swift’s photo from the recording studio further fueled speculation among fans.

Fans of both Puth and Swift flooded Puth’s TikTok comments with theories about the connection between his caption and the TTPD lyrics. Many agreed with Swift’s sentiment that Puth should be a bigger artist. Some fans also pointed out that Puth’s use of “you know who you are” in his caption was an iconic reference, possibly linking to his past relationship with Swift or similar experiences in his life.

Swift’s brief fling with Matty Healy reportedly took place during her Eras tour in spring 2023. The pair were seen attending each other’s concerts in the U.S. before parting ways in May. Swift later moved on with NFL star Travis Kelce, while Healy began dating Gabbriette Bechtel. A source revealed that Swift had given Healy a heads-up about the TTPD tracks inspired by their connection, and he was reportedly pleased with how she portrayed him in the songs.

Swift’s previous relationship with Joe Alwyn, which lasted for six years, also inspired songs on TTPD, along with her current relationship with Kelce. The album explores themes of love, loss, and personal growth, reflecting Swift’s evolution as a songwriter and artist. Fans have praised the album for its introspective lyrics and emotional depth, further solidifying Swift’s reputation as one of the most influential artists of her generation. Despite the personal nature of the songs, Swift has always been open about her experiences and relationships in her music, connecting with fans on a deep and relatable level.
