The album already boasts back-to-back smashes in its now 3x-Platinum certified lead single “Attention” and Platinum certified follow-up “How Long.” “Attention” marked Charlie’s fifth RIAA-certified platinum selling single, third Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 (peaking at #5), second solo #1 on Hot AC radio, and first solo #1 on Top 40 radio. In addition to his continued commercial success, Charlie’s new music has found critical acclaim with The New York Times calling “Attention” one of the best songs of 2017. “Attention” also proved to be a worldwide smash outside the U.S., receiving a remarkable 47 Platinum certifications as well as a Diamond certification in France.
