Charlie Puth Takes Off as Two New Singles Light Up the Airwaves

New Single "Marvin Gaye (Feat. Meghan Trainor)" Has World Video Premiere Exclusively via Buzzfeed as Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again (Feat. Charlie Puth)" Ascends on Multi-Format Radio and Billboard's "Hot 100"

Acclaimed Singer/Songwriter/Producer Joins Meghan Trainor on Her Hugely Anticipated "Mtrain Tour" This Summer

Eagerly Awaited Label Debut EP Due Later This Year

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2015) - Artist Partners/Atlantic recording artist Charlie Puth has announced plans for a major summer tour. The New Jersey-based singer/songwriter/producer will join Meghan Trainor on her upcoming "MTrain Tour," with dates getting underway July 3rd at Atlantic City's Borgata Festival Park and then travels through September (see below itinerary).

Puth and Trainor are already making waves together with the talented young tunesmith's breakthrough single, "Marvin Gaye (Feat. Meghan Trainor)," which is now available at all DSPs. The track -- which debuted last month at TeenVogue (http://teenv.ge/1OZSvma) -- is accompanied by an ebullient companion video; the clip has just had its world premiere exclusive via Buzzfeed (http://bzfd.it/1bPAZSj) and is streaming now at Puth's hugely popular YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/CharliesVlogs.

"I was a big fan of Marvin Gaye growing up," Puth says. "I was inspired by the soulful feeling he evoked through his music and wanted to bring that quality to my record. I am so appreciative that the Gaye family has allowed me, as a young artist, to reintroduce his music to the masses and a younger generation. The song 'Marvin Gaye' is an opportunity to celebrate Marvin's life and legacy. And having Meghan Trainor join me has been incredible; her soulful vocal put the bow on the whole record."

Meanwhile, "See You Again," by Wiz Khalifa (Feat. Charlie Puth), is proving one of the popular highlights of FURIOUS 7: ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK, Atlantic Records' official musical companion to Universal's new action-thriller. The track -- which was also written and produced by Puth -- is now ascending Billboard's "Hot 100" while climbing multi-format radio outlets nationwide. In addition, Puth and Khalifa recently united for an electrifying live performance of "See You Again" on NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, streaming now at www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/wiz-khalifa-ft-charlie-puth-see-you-again/2853260. Billboard said about Charlie's performance, "live, he sounded like he could give Sam Smith a run for his money." Khalifa and Puth also performed the anthem in front of a massive live audience at Los Angeles' Hollywood & Highland complex for Revolt TV's FURIOUS 7 premiere broadcast event earlier this week.

Charlie Puth first attracted national notice when his YouTube cover version of Adele's "Someone Like You" caught the ear of Ellen DeGeneres, who invited Puth to perform on her nationally syndicated show before signing him to a development deal with her eleveneleven record label. The young artist has since found himself among modern pop's most in-demand co-writers and producers, with recent credits including tracks by Pitbull, Jason Derulo, and Songbook Entertainment/Atlantic's own Trey Songz.

A New Jersey native and Berklee College of Music graduate, Puth -- who makes a surprise cameo in Meghan Trainor's smash "Dear Future Husband" companion video -- is currently hard at work writing and recording his Atlantic Records debut EP. The as-yet-untitled collection will arrive later this year.
