Newcomer and Grammy-nominated Charlie Puth has finally released his first-ever album titled “Nine Track Mind.”
“Nine Track Mind is a twelve track album,” he told Forbes during the launch on Jan. 29. “It doesn’t have to do with the tracks as much as my mind. I know I’m going to be answering this forever and ever. There’s that saying, ‘He’s one-track minded.’ My goal in life is success, but with that come music notes that pop up in my head.”
The album includes two of his hits, “One Call Away” and “Marvin Gaye,” which features Meghan Trainor. “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” his collaboration with Selena Gomez, is also part of the collection.
Other songs included in the album are “Dangerously,” “Losing My Mind,” “My Gospel,” “Up All Night,” “Left Right Left,” “Then There’s You,” “Suffer,” “As You Are,” and “Some Type of Love.”
Puth also revealed to Forbes that he has yet to get used to the attention that he is getting, and he is not sure if he can get completely accustomed to it. Looking back to his journey from being a YouTube sensation to a Grammy nominee, the singer said that he still can’t believe how far he has gone.
“I got kicked off of YouTube for copyright infringement about ten times. I always dreamed, what would it be like to have a video with a million hits? Now I’m in a video that has literally a billion and a couple hundred million hits. I think back to when I uploaded my first video in 2007 and just from there to now it’s been… It was not an overnight thing for me,” he said.
A report of ET in December said that Puth was on a plane when the list of the 2016 Grammy nominees was revealed and was clueless of the great news awaiting him when he alighted.
When asked about the Grammy’s, where his song “See You Again” has been nominated in three categories including Song of the Year, Puth said that he currently feels excited but will surely be on pins and needles once he is already at the ceremony. He also revealed that he doesn’t want to practice an acceptance speech as it might jinx his chances of bringing home a Grammy trophy.
The 2016 Grammy Awards is happening on Feb. 15 at the Staples Center in L.A.
