Views on the campaign video
Charlie Puth was in Singapore after four years, promoting his upcoming album CHARLIE, slated to release on October 7, 2022, via Atlantic Records.
Commenting on the collaboration and sharing his thoughts about being back in Asia, he said, “This is my third time in Singapore, and each time there’s something new to learn and discover. But this visit is extra special because I’m using the details of everyday life in this city to tell a story through music. Singapore is full of colours and unique sounds at every turn. That’s what makes it so fascinating, and that’s what inspires me when I make music.”
Puth previously had concerts in Singapore back in 2016 and 2018.
Sharing thoughts about the video, brand director at STB, Choo Huei Miin said, “The sights and sounds of our city is a great match with Charlie’s passion and creativity. We were thrilled that Charlie chose Singapore as the only destination in Asia for his album promo, giving us the opportunity to work with Warner Music to showcase our diverse offerings through his talent.”
Speaking about international travel gaining momentum, Miin added, “As international travel recovers, such creative collaborations help us reach a global audience and position Singapore as a must-visit destination that offers unlimited possibilities.”
STB’s other collaborations
The Singapore Tourism Board is going big with celebrity collaborations. Prior to Puth, the board teamed up with K-pop icon Jackson Wang, in August, for a travel log series to promote Singapore as part of the same campaign.
