Being not only a vocalist but also a producer, a songwriter, and an instrumentalist, Charlie Puth is definitely a multitalented celebrity. From getting popular with his covers to becoming one of the most loved songwriters of this generation, Puth has surpassed a long way as a brilliant musician.
Here, we bring to you the 13 best songs of this pitch-perfect singer, Charlie Puth.
13. CHANGE :
The tenth track on ‘Voicenotes’, and a heartfelt duet between Puth and five-time Grammy-winner James Taylor. ‘Change’ is an understated piano ballad.
12. SLOW IT DOWN :
The ninth song on ‘Voicenotes’, ‘Slow It Down’, sounds like a lost Hall & Oates track – the legendary duo helped write it. The shiny 80s synth sounds are almost gelatinously thick here and there’s an especially nostalgic hook, ‘Girl you gotta slow it down’, where Puth rebuffs the immediacy of modern dating.
11. MARVIN GAYE :
Featuring singer-songwriter Meghan Trainor, ‘Marvin Gaye’ is from his third EP Some Type of Love (2015), and debut studio album Nine Track Mind (2016). Puth co-wrote it with Julie Frost, Jacob Luttrell, and Nick Seeley, and produced it.
10. THE WAY I AM :
As ‘Voicenotes’ opener, ‘The Way I Am’ sets the tone for the rest of the album: it’s electro-flecked perky pop with lyrics that aim for honesty. While Puth confronts his anxiety here, the chorus is feel-good and instantly memorable.
9. ONE CALL AWAY :
‘One Call Away’s lyrics are optimistic, catchy, and sweet; moreover, his fans can easily relate to the song’s hopeful message. This track is from his studio album, Nine Track Mind, which will be released, via his record label, Atlantic Records. Puth co-wrote the song with Justin “DJ” Franks, Maureen Anne McDonald, and Matt Prime.
8. DONE FOR ME :
Done for Me embraces urban contemporary music, an excellent look for Puth. On Done for Me, the fourth single from his sophomore album ‘Voicenotes,’ Charlie Puth continues to show greater maturity as an artist.
7. HOW LONG :
‘How Long’ is funky, soulful, and thrives off its groove. This complements the lightness and airy nature of Puth’s voice exceptionally well. It’s the second single of his highly anticipated album ‘Voicenotes’.
6. MOTHER :
The lyrics of ‘Mother’ are pretty deep, as Puth describes how a girl’s mother wouldn’t be his biggest fan if she actually knew what they got up to. Directed by Dawit N.M with COUSCOUS acting as the production company, this accompanying music video fits in perfectly with the song itself.
5. SEE YOU AGAIN :
‘See You Again’ became an instant hit upon its release. It spent 12 weeks on top of the US Billboard Hot 100. Charlie Puth’s career skyrocketed.
4. WE DON’T TALK ANYMORE :
‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’ is a light, innocent-sounding pop. Featuring vocals from fellow American singer Selena Gomez, it’s the third single from Puth’s debut album ‘Nine Track Mind’.
3. ATTENTION :
‘Attention’ is the first single from his album ‘Voicenotes’. It touches upon emotions that everyone goes through at some point in a relationship. It is one of the massive hits in Charlie Puth’s career.
2. STAY :
Laroi and Bieber wrote the song with producers Cashmere Cat, Charlie Puth, Omer Fedi, and Blake Slatkin, alongside FnZ members Finatik and Zac, and Haan. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 3, before hitting No. 1 on the chart.
