欧美娱乐:再见保罗, 你好普斯

2015-05-19    来源:21英语    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

再见保罗,你好普斯

单曲循环了很多天,才知道《速度与激情7》的主题曲"See You Again"原来出自一位91年的“小鲜肉”之口...而这首热门的单曲又带给了这位新星什么...

You may not be familiar with the name Charlie Puth, but his song "See You Again" featuring American rapper Wiz Khalifa has recently become a huge hit internationally. The "Furious 7" Paul Walker tribute topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US and UK. And it has broken several industry records, including becoming the most-streamed track in a day and week on Spotify.
也许你对查理•普斯这个名字还不熟悉。但是他与美国说唱歌手维兹•卡利法共同演绎的"SeeYou Again"已经成为当下全球的大热单曲。作为电影《速度与激情7》的主题曲,这首歌借着致敬保罗的热风分别登顶英、美两国公告牌百强榜,同时打破了乐坛诸多记录,比如刷新了(全球最大的流媒体音乐服务之一)Spotify(声破天)单日与单周播放量。

The popularity of the song also helped boost the professional career of this fresh star who was mostly unknown just a few months ago. On May 1 the 23-year-old US singer-songwriter released his first EP, "Some Type of Love".
这首歌的走红也让其演唱者查理•普斯的职业生涯蒸蒸日上,从几个月前名不见经传的小歌手变成现在的“小鲜肉”新星。5月1日,这位年仅23岁的美国创作型歌手发布了自己的首张EP"Some Type of Love".

Puth first arrived on listeners' radar through YouTube, where he posted his own acoustic covers of hit songs. His reinterpretation of Adele's "Someone Like You" got him signed to talk show star Ellen DeGeneres' music label. In 2012, Puth appeared on Ellen twice, performing Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" and a self-written song called "Break Again".
普斯最初因为在YouTube上传了其翻唱的经典作品而进入人们的视线。他翻唱的阿黛勒的"Someone Like You"更是助他签下了脱口秀明星艾伦•德詹尼丝的唱片公司。2012年,普斯曾两度登上《艾伦秀》,并现场演绎了战前女神的“Need You Now”,以及自己创作的歌曲"BreakAgain"。

Although the exposure didn't really push him forward into the mainstream music business, it shot the young man's YouTube subscribers up. Puth considered it a "wonderful experience" mostly because it helped him plot out a clear direction. "One of the best things from it is that it actually inspired me to write more music for myself," Puth said in an interview with Billboard.
即使如此,脱口秀的曝光并没有让他进入主流音乐圈,却让他在YouTube上粉丝暴涨。在普斯看来,这是一段“美妙的经历”,正因如此,他才方向更加明确。在接受美国《公告牌》杂志采访时,普斯曾说:“最重要的是,他们成为了我继续为自己创作更多作品的动力。”

Puth graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in 2013. With a wide vocal range, exquisite piano skills and creative songwriting, all he needed was an opportunity to shine.
普斯2013年毕业于声名远扬的美国伯克利音乐学院。他音域宽广、钢琴技巧精湛,词曲创作上也颇有想法,而他所需要的只是一个崭露头角的机会。

When Mike Caren, Warner Music Group's worldwide head of A&R was looking for a talent to write a memorial song for Walker, Puth saw the opportunity of a lifetime. Caren commissioned over 100 musicians to write music for the "Furious 7" soundtrack and signed Puth shortly after he heard Puth's chorus. "We were looking for melody, lyrics, beats and musicality, and 'See You Again' had all those things in spades," said Caren.
当时,华纳音乐集团A&R国际总监麦克•凯伦正在寻找有才之人创作一首纪念保罗的歌曲;普斯因此迎来了改变人生的契机。凯伦委托了100多为音乐人为《速度与激情7》创作音乐,却在听过普斯的副歌之后就迅速与他签约。凯伦说:“旋律、歌词、节奏、乐感都是我们所寻找的,而'See You Again'兼具了这一切。”

Though Puth had never met Walker, he drew inspiration from his own life. "I had experienced a loss very similar to Paul, where a friend passed away in a car accident. The first words out of my mouth were, 'It's been a long day'," recalled Puth to Billboard.
虽然,普斯与保罗素未谋面,但他从自己的生活中汲取到了灵感。在接受《公告牌》采访时,普斯表示:“我也曾经历失去的痛苦,像人们失去保罗一样,我的一个朋友也曾在车祸中丧生。于是,第一句歌词就到了嘴边 ‘那是漫长的一天’。”

Puth describes his music as "soulful pop", and "See You Again" stands out as a perfect representation of music that reaches out to listeners' hearts.
普斯用“灵魂流行乐”形容自己的音乐,并将“See You Again”视为完美代表作,因为其能直抵人心。

Puth is currently scheduled to tour with US singer Meghan Trainor and also work on a yet-unnamed CD in 2015, according to the New York Post. A future star is rising.
据《纽约邮报》报道,普斯最近将与美国歌手梅根•特瑞娜共同巡演,并在2015年着手打造一张还未命名的CD。又一颗明日之星正在冉冉升起。
