Charlie Puth Fought To Be In The 'See You Again' Music Video

When “See You Again” premiered back in 2015, Charlie Puth wasn’t a well known artist at all.

Teaming up with Wiz Khalifa on the track which he co-wrote, the musician almost pulled the entire song from the Furious 7‘s soundtrack when some people didn’t want him featured on the song, or even in the video.

“I don’t know if a lot of people know this, I wasn’t supposed to be in the video,” Charlie shared with Billboard. “I wasn’t supposed to be on the song; I was only supposed to be a writer on the song.”

He adds, “I was a brand new artist, I wasn’t cool enough to be part of the franchise yet, I wasn’t big enough, but I proved everybody who was close-minded wrong. Everyone on my record label stuck beside me and my management.”

Charlie took things into his own hands when some told him he couldn’t be in the video at all.

“I’ll never forget I ended up calling them from around this big conference table on the phone, and they were explaining the reasons why it was going to be sung by this artist and blah, blah blah, I’m not going to name any names, but… I said, ‘That’s great. Your movie comes out in a week and I’m not gonna give you the song.’ And I hung up the phone and when I said that miraculously I was in the music video.”

We’re glad he was featured on the track and in the video! Can you imagine what life would be like without Charlie Puth?!
