Charlie Puth comes clean about his embarrassing YouTuber past

Charlie Puth’s YouTuber past has come back to haunt him.

Much to his chagrin, TikTok has unearthed some of his old videos from before he was a signed artist. One includes him performing a song called “Sexy Shades,” about — you guessed it — his favorite pair of sunglasses.

“I’ve been waiting for this day to come. I lasted five years without anybody knowing this,” Charlie said in a TikTok video response. “Before I was a signed artist, I used to make YouTube comedy songs, and, bro, they’re so hard to watch.”

He added, “We tried so hard in the beginning when I first got signed to hide all of these videos, but, TikTok! So, if you want a good laugh, type in my name plus old videos and have fun.”

Some other gems include “The Pickle Song” and “Red Hyundai,” an ode to Charlie’s car.
