  • It feels like Charlie Puth went from showcasing his vocals on YouTube to recording hit singles with the hottest artists in the music game overnight. The singer's sweet melodies were featured on one of the biggest songs of last summer, Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again,” which put Puth on the map as it dominated the music charts. But that was just the beginning of the 24-year-old’s success. He’s been working on killer collaborations, recording tracks with stars like Meghan Trainor and Lil Wayne. And he recently took to Instagram to share with his 1.2 million followers that he’s teaming up with Selena Gomez next.
  • That wasn’t the first time that Puth used social media to give fans an inside look at his music-filled world. Whether he’s beat-boxing with friends or dancing to his catchy new tune with Gomez, Puth often shares singalong-worthy videos. Here are nine of our favorites.
