You may know him as the singer behind the vocals ‘See You Again’ featured in Furious 7 and ‘Marvin Gaye’ featuring Megan Trainor, but there is more than meets the eye for this Berklee graduate! Here are 5 things you need to know about Charlie Puth.
#1 He was a YouTuber discovered by Ellen DeGeneres
His cover of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ with Emily Luther gained a lot of attention, so much that Ellen DeGeneres wanted both of them on her show! When the Ellen team called him up, he thought that it was a prank and hung up on them, thrice! But everything went well in the end, he appeared on the show and even signed to her label, eleveneleven.
#2 A dog attack almost killed him
He got his permanent scar on his eyebrow from a dog attack which almost died from. So no, he didn’t shave his brows to seem cool. He is cool without trying.
#3 He’s a producer too
He wrote, co-produced, and was featured on a song with Wiz Khalifa, ‘See You Again’, a tribute to the late Paul Walker, included in the Furious 7 soundtrack. He also worked on several albums of other artists. He co-wrote and produced the ‘Broke’ and ‘Pull Up’ for Jason Derulo’s album Everything Is 4, and produced “Working Class Heroes (Work)” on CeeLo Green’s album Heart Blanche. Is he talented or what?
#4 He’s not dating Selena Gomez or Megan Trainor
He has worked with Megan for his debut single ‘Marvin Gaye’ and Selena for a track in his debut album ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’. Despite all rumours, he’s just really good friends with both Selena and Megan.
#5 He will be performing in Singapore
Singapore will be one of his stops for his ‘Nine Track Mind Tour’! Catch Charlie Puth live in Singapore at The Coliseum on 10 August! Tickets are now available for sale via sistic.
