American singer, songwriter, and record producer Charlie Puth has released his new single titled, “That’s Hilarious.”
Charlie Puth’s initial exposure came through the viral success of his song videos uploaded to YouTube.
Charlie Puth initially signed with the record label eleveneleven after performing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, while songwriting and producing for other artists. With primary intent on a solo career, Atlantic Records and Artist Partner Group eventually sought the artist and released his debut single, “Marvin Gaye” (featuring Meghan Trainor), in 2015.
Charlie Puth’s next single and first feature, “See You Again”, which he co-wrote, co-produced, and performed with Atlantic label-mate Wiz Khalifa for the Furious 7 soundtrack as a tribute to actor Paul Walker. It peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for 12 non-consecutive weeks. After the success of “See You Again”, he gained worldwide recognition for multiple subsequent releases, including his next single, “One Call Away”. The single reached number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Puth’s debut studio album, Nine Track Mind, was released in January 2016 to moderate commercial success. The album was preceded by the singles “One Call Away” and “We Don’t Talk Anymore” (featuring Selena Gomez), which peaked at number 12 and number 9 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100.
In 2017, Charlie Puth released two songs, “Attention” and “How Long”, with the former peaking at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both were included on his second studio album, Voicenotes (2018), with ameliorated critical reception and a peak of number 4 on the Billboard 200.
On August 13, 2019, a remix version of the 5 Seconds of Summer song “Easier” with Puth (who also co-wrote and produced the original version) was released. On August 21 of the same year, Puth released a single called “I Warned Myself”; another single, “Mother”, was released on September 12. A third single, “Cheating on You”, was released on October 1, 2019.
Puth would later reveal in an interview with Zane Lowe that he “didn’t really like any of the music” he released in 2019. “I felt like I was kind of pretending to be a cool guy,” he said of the singles.
On April 17, 2020, Puth appeared on a remix of Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” and performed the song live alongside her at the 54th Annual Country Music Association Awards. The following day, he performed a song titled “Sick”, which was made during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In November 2020, Puth appeared in a remix version of Sasha Sloan’s “Is It Just Me?”. On September 22, 2021, Puth released a song with Elton John titled “After All” as part of John’s album The Lockdown Sessions. On January 20, 2022, Puth released “Light Switch”, the first single of his third studio album Charlie, due out later in 2022.
