Charlie Puth Teases 'Voicenotes'
Prior to the release of Voicenotes, the 26-year-old musician said his goal is for fans to hear his real sound this time around.
"I'm glad people are finally hearing the real me. This isn't the story of how I got hooked up with some cooler producer - I always had this music in me, it was just a matter of executing it," said Puth.
Singer's Music Career
Puth's music career took off in 2015 after he had released the carrier single for Furious 7 called "See You Again." Wiz Khalifa wrote the rap parts featured in the song, but Puth was mostly credited for the track.
In fact, he received three Grammy awards for "See You Again," namely Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, and Best Song Written for Social Media.
Since then, Puth has released a five-track EP called Some Type of Love. Other songs in the album are "I Won't Tell A Soul," "Marvin Gaye," "Some Type of Love," and "Suffer."
On top of this, Puth also previously collaborated with other artists such as Jason Derulo, Liam Payne, Meghan Trainor, Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign, and Lil Wayne.
Two years ago, he released the album called Nine Track Mind, and it featured his collaboration with Selena Gomez, Shy Carter, and more. The songs in the album are "One Call Away," "Dangerously," "Losing My Mind," "We Don't Talk Anymore," "My Gospel," "Up All Night," "Left Right Left," "Then There's You," "Suffer," "As You Are," "See You Again," "Nothing But Trouble," and so on.
'See You Again' Criticized
In his recent interview, Puth opened up about "See You Again" and acknowledged that the song was quite bland just like how the critics described it. At the time of the song's release, Puth said that he did not plan on becoming a recording artist. He simply wanted to be a songwriter.
"I wasn't planning on being an artist. I had to figure out my artist career in front of millions of people while we had the biggest song in the past decade. Everyone was like, 'Oh, he's going to be a piano player artist' and I was like, 'I don't even know who I'm going to be...'" said Puth.
