About Charlie Puth
New Jersey-born multi-platinum and multiple GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist, songwriter, and producer Charlie Puth catapulted to superstardom in 2016 at light speed. He maintained this perpetual motion in 2017 with hits "Attention" and "How Long," the first two singles released from Puth's highly-anticipated sophomore album, Voicenotes. The album's first single "Attention" – now 3x-Platinum certified - marked Puth's third Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 and first #1 on pop radio, cracking 3 million Spotify streams in just a week, with its sexy music video racking up over 3 million views in under 24 hours. The New York Times praised the track as one of "The Best Songs of 2017" while noting upon the release of platinum-certified follow-up "How Long"' that "the once tightly controlled pop-soul singer is maturing with a robust second act full of bruises." The album's latest single, "Done For Me (feat. Kehlani)" is already beginning its ascent up the pop radio charts. Puth's RIAA platinum-certified first album NINE TRACK MIND made a remarkable chart debut upon its 2016 release, hitting #5 on Billboard's Top Current Albums Chart, fueled by the 2x RIAA platinum-certified top 40 smashes, "One Call Away" and "Marvin Gaye (featuring Meghan Trainor)," as well as the 3x RIAA platinum-certified "We Don't Talk Anymore (featuring Selena Gomez)." A worldwide phenomenon, the debut album reached #1 on iTunes charts in 28 countries around the globe. Puth fully exploded onto the music scene as a songwriter, producer and vocalist on Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," the emotional tribute to Paul Walker in "FURIOUS 7." The song has officially entered the history books as one of the decade's biggest singles, topping Billboard's Hot 100 for a stunning 12 weeks and has become YouTube's "second most popular video of all-time." It won two Billboard Music Awards, a Critic's Choice Award for "Best Song," a Hollywood Film Award, 2 Teen Choice Awards, a Golden Globe® Award nomination in the category of "Best Original Song" and three GRAMMY® Award nods, including the prestigious "Song of the Year."
