Take note music fans, because Charlie Puth is bringing his voice to Malaysia this November!
The multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter will be performing here as part of his Voicenotes Tour. The concert will take place at 8.30pm on November 14 at the Malawati Indoor Stadium, Shah Alam, Selangor.
Over the past three years, Puth has proven himself commercially with the extraordinary success of multi-platinum hits like One Call Away, Marvin Gaye, and We Don’t Talk Anymore from his Top 10 debut album Nine Track Mind.
His breakout hit See You Again was the best-selling song of 2015 worldwide,earning him three Grammy nominations (including Song of the Year) and a Golden Globe nomination.
Puth has not only written and produced his own massive hits, but also for other artists spanning a range of genres, including Jason Derulo, Trey Songz, Thomas Rhett, Maroon 5, and G-Eazy.
The New Jersey-born musician co-wrote every song and recorded and produced his latest album, Voicenotes, named after the trusty iPhone app he uses to collect his musical ideas.
It is an album that is largely about Puth’s struggle to find a normal relationship when his own life has hardly been normal since finding success, and the anxiety that pursuit has induced.
“I wanted it to be a story of my travels from the East Coast to the West Coast and how my growing fame has affected my mind in good and bad ways,” he says. “I thought I was supposed to go to all these parties and be this type of person so I’ve always shoved my anxiety under the carpet because I didn’t think anyone cared to hear about it.”
“This album touches on that, but I also wanted to make sure that these songs, at the end of the day, are fun because some people choose not to listen to the lyrics. They just want to go to the club, listen to the beat, and have a great time. And that’s totally fine, too.”
This new direction has definitely paid off for Puth, Single Attention, in particular, has certainly grabbed fans’ attention, hitting No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, Puth’s highest-charting single as a solo artist.
