Proof positive that Atlantic Records is committed to Charlie Puth . the major label has aligned his talents with Meghan Trainor, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne and, most recently, Wale. ‘Marvin Gaye’, his collaboration with Meghan Trainor has since been re-styled as a production between him and Wale who deals a verse.
Prior to signing with Atlantic, Puth was a student at Berklee University and had grown a sizable following on YouTube for his viral covers of pop records. Interestingly enough, he was originally signed to Ellen Degeneres label for a few months but opted out of his contract due to the lack of creative freedom.
His track with Wiz jumped to #1 on the iTunes and Billboard charts in an instant and his track with Lil Wayne is following suit.
