    Charlie Puth in Billboard!
    May 11, 2015
    Charlie Puth and Wiz Khalifa sat down to talk about their global #1 hit See You Again and more in the May 16th issue of Billboard magazine. Billboard caught up with Puth and Khalifa as they rehearsed to appear on Saturday Night Live a few weeks ago. 
     
    "Just a few months ago, Charlie Puth was a mostly unknown 23-year-old singer from Rumson, N.J., waiting for his big break. But on this sunny afternoon in Manhattan, he's fresh off rehearsing for his Saturday Night Live debut, unwinding in a two-floor penthouse suite at the ritzy Gansevoort Park Avenue hotel, and turning down weed from none other than Wiz Khalifa.”
     
    "The song scores the last scene of Furious 7 -- the blockbuster film that has grossed $1.4 billion worldwide (according to Box Office Mojo) since its March premiere -- and launched its soundtrack, released March 17 by Atlantic, to No. 1 on the Billboard 200. It also has made an overnight star of Puth, who boasts a Sam Smith-like vocal range, piano skills honed at Berklee College of Music and teen-idol looks with one noticeable twist -- a large scar on his right eyebrow, the result of a childhood dog bite. "We brought the power ballad back," says Puth of "See You Again." "It's a big, uplifting song anyone can connect to."
