Losing My Mind

Album: Nine Track Mind (2016)


  • This was the last song that Charlie Puth wrote for Nine Track Mind when he was getting pressured to finish the album. He recalled to AT40: "I had 12 hours to finish it, and I was kind of having a mental breakdown because I couldn't think of anything. I thought I was losing my mind, and I didn't know what to write about. And I stopped myself and I was like, Dummy, why don't you just write about what you're feeling right now? You're losing your mind."
