Charlie Puth says Elton John said his music was a ‘wake-up call’

Charlie Puth has described Elton John as a “wake-up call” when he told him his music “crappy”.

Appears on That Ellen DeGeneres Show On Wednesday (April 13), the “We Don’t Talk Anymore” singer recalled meeting John in 2019 following the release of his 2018 album voice memos.

“When you’re writing a song, it’s important to tell the truth,” he said. “I didn’t really do that in 2019 and the person who awakened my senses was none other than Elton John.”

The pair met at a restaurant in West Hollywood, where the “Rocketman” singer told Puth, “‘How are you, hi… You know, your music sucked in 2019. It was not good.'”

Puth said that while the comments came as a “stomach,” he already “thought so too.”

“I went through a messy breakup and I think that came with it, too,” he said. “It was kind of a wake-up call, a little bit. I was a bit in denial… [I] I’ve decided never to release another song if it wasn’t the truth.”

John and Puth have been working together musically ever since, performing together at the Global Citizen Live concert in Paris last year.

Earlier this year, Puth was defended by Billie Eilish after producer Benny Blanco called him a “fucking loser” for “sitting in a room doing TikToks all day.”

In her own clip, Eilish, who appeared unimpressed, responded to the video and said: “What do you do all day Benny? The same. Literally the same.”

Puth has more than 16 million followers on the video platform where he documented the process of creating his new song “Light Switch”.
