Averaging over 750,000 views per day just on YouTube, “Mother” is projected to receive 21 million views in just four weeks, exceeding the views for “I Warned Myself” by over 4 million in the same amount of time.

In an interview with, Puth explained how these songs should be “fun” and “carefree” because “everything is so serious in the world” and wants people to take a “three minute break.” In order for this to work, Puth tried to make his album more “minimalistic sonically” in order for people to listen to the songs just for fun, rather than thinking too much about it. Puth added that the track “I Warned Myself,” was made in “three seconds and then [he] finished the song.” By not over complicating the song and making sure everything “sounds perfect and pristine,” Puth focused on making a connection with his audience purely out of entertainment rather than critique.

Puth’s fans were extremely excited for “Mother” to come out and could not hold back on Twitter by calling it “a bop” and saying that they “cannot stop listening to it.” “Mother” and its corresponding music video resonate with his younger audience. According to The Fader, Puth’s song also intrigued the older side of his audience by creating a That 70’s Show vibe in the music video and adding Chad Smith, a member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, on the drums.
