Thanks to YouTube, we know of this guy! Before we knew him as a superstar, he was a quiet boy who lived in New Jersey. But, he loved music and rose to fame after recording his covers of well known songs and gained the attention of several recording agencies.
His mom probably helped a teensy bit considering she used to write commercial jingles for HBO.
He then broke into the mainstream following his back to back hits “See You Again” and “One Call Away” in 2015. The former reaching #1 in the US, which is rare for a first time artist! Puth collaborated with several other artists, such as Meghan Trainor and Selena Gomez, before branching out to find his own music.
His new album, Voicenotes, is already being hailed as a banger considering he gained massive fanfare by releasing “Attention” and “How Long.” Critics say his album has hits from start to finish, which is somewhat of a rarity these days.
He’s come quite a long way from his time on his very own Michael’s Jewelers’ Acoustic Session! WTG Charlie!
