Charlie Puth revealed his motivation for uploading detailed videos to TikTok in an interview with Popcrush on YouTube, mentioning that he “loves to teach”.
If you’re on MusicTok – the section of TikTok that focuses on musicians big and small – you’ve probably come across Charlie Puth and his infamous videos detailing his life and progress in creating music.
Some of his most viral videos show the creator making a random sound, like a light switch turning on and off, and telling his viewers what musical note it is. His detailed videos contributed significantly to the popularity of his single “Lightswitch”.
In an interview with Popcrush, Puth revealed his motivation for uploading to TikTok – and mentioned that his love for teaching is behind it.
Charlie Puth explains why he uploads to TikTok
In an April 8 interview, Popcrush host Lauryn Snapp asked Charlie questions about his upcoming album — and how TikTok helped him decide to title it himself.
They went on to talk about TikTok, a social media platform where Puth has amassed over 16 million followers. The musician then revealed the motivation behind his consistent uploads.
“I always wanted to be a teacher. I feel like I’m teaching [people my techniques],” he explained. “I think on my TikTok page, I teach people things, and I want to learn things too. It’s basically a food channel, but without the food.”
