An emerging talent from New Jersey, Charlie Puth initially gained attention after his song videos went viral on Youtube. Blessed with perfect pitch, he has been playing the piano ever since he was four years old; by the time he was eleven, he had recorded and produced his own Christmas album. In 2009, the teen launched his Youtube Channel to which he began posting a number of acoustic covers. With a little bit of luck, he eventually won an online competition sponsored by Perez Hilton which landed him on the Ellen Degeneres Show. Signing to her music label, he later released his promotional single, Break Again in December 2012.
Featuring added vocals from Meghan Trainor, Marvin Gaye proved to be a huge success, having topped the charts in New Zealand, UK, Ireland, and France. In the United States, it also peaked at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100, and at number 15 on the Mainstream Top 40. Responsible for his rise to fame, an accompanying music video was later uploaded to Youtube; as of 2017, it has been played over 533 million times. In support of the single, Puth performed the song with Trainor at the 2015 American Music Awards later that year. As of July 2016, Marvin Gaye has gone platinum twice in the United States.
Riding on his momentum, he released the extended play, Some Type of Love on May 1, 2015. In addition to the above single, its tracklist also included, I Won’t Tell a Soul, Some Type of Love, and Suffer. A solid addition to his growing catalog, the EP reached as high as number 37 on the Billboard 200 and at number 3 on the Top Heatseekers Albums chart. Later that year, Puth also came out with the single, One Call Away, which became another instant hit. Written in part by himself, it became his third top 40 single in the country, having reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Elsewhere, the song also enjoyed success in countries as far Italy, Finland, Austria, Denmark, and New Zealand.
His debut studio album, Nine Track Mind eventually came out on January 29, 2016. Supported by three singles, it boasted twelve tracks including, Left Right Left, As You Are, Dangerously, Then There’s You, and Up All Night. A few months into its release, Puth also dropped the single, We Don’t Talk Anymore (Feat. Selena Gomez) which reached number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it his best-selling record to date. Though reviews were mixed, the album charted in numerous countries such as Ireland, Japan, Scotland, Canada, and France. In support of its release, he hit the road for a Nine Track Mind Tour in the spring of 2016.
