The song has topped the digital songs chart since Furious 7’s strong opening on the silver screen.  It became the most added, and most active song at Top 40/Pop radio since its promotional release, becoming a power player at radio stations in major markets across the country.  It has also become a career best for Wiz this week, as “See You Again” tops the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, as the song zoomed from 10-#1 in one week.

Charlie is quickly becoming Atlantic Records’ go to guy for the growing market of soulful songwriting piano players. He recently released the video for his first single as a lead artist, the seductive duet called, “Marvin Gaye.” As the title suggests, Charlie cleverly uses the names of some of the Soul icon’s greatest in the lyrics of the tune in an effort to spark romance and get that special someone in the mood, just as many Gaye slow jams have done for millions in the past. He is very lucky to be singing about creative ways to get it on to the unforgettable beauty, Meghan Trainor. As a renown singer/songwriter who writes all her own music, “Marvin Gaye” stands out as something special for Meghan. It is the only song that Meghan has ever been involved with for herself or someone else that she did not write. Charlie must be a pretty awesome guy right? Well, when you combine his baby-faced look with that soul, and mix it with all that “bass” that she’s got going on, you come up with something hot. Maybe that is why Charlie got to return the favor by co-starring in Meghan’s latest video, “Dear Future Husband.” Charlie recently talked about his surprise cameo as a pizza delivery boy in the video with Pop Crush.

“I didn’t even mention it and I got like 100,000 replies saying ‘I think I saw you deliver Meghan a pizza. Were you the pizza delivery boy?’”
