About Charlie Puth
Charlie Puth has proven to be one of the music industry's most consistent 
hitmakers and sought-after collaborators. Puth has garnered eight 
multi-platinum singles, four GRAMMY nominations, three Billboard Music Awards, 
a Critic's Choice Award, and a Golden Globe nomination. His 2018 
GRAMMY-nominated LP, Voicenotes, was certified Gold by the Recording Industry 
Association of America (RIAA) only four days after its release and has logged 
over 5.6 billion streams worldwide. Puth's 2020 collaboration with Gabby 
Barrett on their "I Hope" remix earned him his fourth top 10 track on the 
Billboard Hot 100, hit number one on the Billboard "Adult Pop Songs" chart, and 
won a 2021 Billboard Music Award for "Top Collaboration." Puth also co-wrote 
and produced The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber's record-breaking single, "STAY," 
which quickly became one of the biggest songs of 2021 and holds the title for 
the longest-reigning No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 chart and the first to 
lead it for double-digits -- spending a total of 11 weeks at the top of the 
chart. Puth recently released his highly anticipated third studio album CHARLIE 
via Atlantic Records. Featuring hit singles "Left and Right (feat. Jung Kook of 
BTS)," "That's Hilarious" and "Light Switch," the "expertly crafted collection" 
(from Rolling Stone magazine) has surpassed 1 billion global streams and 
received critical praise. Puth recently set out for his "One Night Only" tour, 
welcoming fans around the world up close and personal as shares his latest 
album and greatest hits.
