Puth, who lost his only 2019 Grammy nomination for best engineered album, non-classical, previously raved about his special time with the iconic musician.
“Quincy Jones is the reason why I even produce music. I never thought I’d be playing one of my favorite Quincy Jones songs in front of the man himself,” he captioned his Instagram video of the pair together.
“Thank you for an absolutely unforgettable night last night Q. And on the first day of the new year…wow!! And thank you @kidadajonesog for introducing me!” Puth wrote.
