After sometime Puth left to join Atlantic Records and since then has collaborated with multiple artists including co-writing Slow Motion, for Trey Songz. Puth’s debut single Marvin Gaye features vocals from, Common Ground headliner, Meghan Trainor and most recently he is featured on Wiz Khalifa’s single See You Again, from the Furious 7 soundtrack.
