Charlie Puth

National Recording Artist, Charlie Puth signed with Atlantic Records and co-wrote, co- produced, and featured on Wiz Khalifa’s Furious 7 ballad “See You Again” — a 4x-platinum smash that topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks, tying the record for the longest run at No. 1 for a rap song, and became No. 1 in over 100 countries, while its video racked up more than a billion YouTube views. He followed that up with the British chart-topper “Marvin Gaye,” featuring Meghan Trainor, which gave Puth another platinum record and his second Top 40 hit in the U.S.

Charlie is currently seeing success with his latest single, “One Call Away.” The track is blowing up at multi-format pop radio outlets nationwide while also approaching the top 20 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” – Puth’s third consecutive top 40 hit in less than one year. The song’s massively popular companion video has already drawn more than 40 million views at Charlie’s official YouTube channel.
