Charlie Puth shared the music video for the wistful “We Don’t Talk Anymore” on Tuesday, a collaboration with pop star Selena Gomez. But something was missing in the video: Selena Gomez.

The video of the Nine Track Mind single shows a couple — the male being Puth — going about their own respective lives away from each other. Both the man and woman struggle to move on, each imagining to kiss someone at the end of the night after partying with friends. At the start and end of each day, the two think of each other and are on the verge of sending off texts to reconnect. But they never do.

As for why Gomez did not appear in the video, Puth offered up a titular reason: “because we don’t talk anymore,” he tweeted a fan. Gomez has not offered up a social media explanation why.
