After capturing everybody’s ears and hearts with his music, the 18 year-old ‘Stitches’ singer is now showing off his ripped body in his photoshoot for Flaunt Magazine.

The young pop sensation tells the publication that he likes writing and singing about love because it is honest and real.

“Love is probably the strongest emotion that you can feel,” he says. “It’s very natural—and I wouldn’t want to say easy—but natural and comfortable to write about, and there’s so many different forms of it, millions of layers, you could write forever about it.

“I’m trying to stay as real as I possibly can.”
