He broke through the especially challenging barrier of making it in the industry after some of the songs he posted on YouTube went viral. He released his debut studio album “Nine Track Mind” in 2016 and hasn’t looked back since then.

For the most part, the details of the early days of the relationship between Hailee Steinfeld and the American musician were birthed by the rumors that started in 2015 after the former couple was seen together backstage at the American Music Awards. Neither of them ever spoke of it until the We Don’t Talk Anymore crooner confirmed that he was in a relationship with a female but emphasized their unwillingness to make it public.

A short while after that, the former couple confirmed that they were indeed dating, but what followed not long after that was the end of the relationship.
